Main conference


The 13th edition of the International Conference on the Computational Processing of Portuguese (PROPOR 2018) will be held at the Serra Nevada Hotel in Canela (Brazil) from September 24 to 26, 2018.

PROPOR is the main scientific meeting in the area of language and speech technologies for the Portuguese language and on the basic and applied research issues related to this language. The event is supported by the PROPOR steering committee.

The meeting has been a very rich forum for the interchange of results and partnerships for the researchers dedicated to the computational processing of Portuguese and the technologies for the Portuguese language. It brings together research groups inthe area, promoting the development of methodologies, language resources, processing tools, applications and projects that may be shared among researchers and practitioners in the field.

PROPOR is a biennial event hosted in Brazil and in Portugal. Past meetings were held in Lisbon, PT (1993);  Curitiba, BR (1996);  Porto Alegre, BR (1998);  Évora, PT (1999);  Atibaia, BR (2000)Faro, PT (2003)Itatiaia, BR (2006) ; Aveiro, PT (2008)Porto Alegre, BR (2010);  Coimbra, PT (2012), São Carlos, BR (2014) and Tomar, PT (2016). More details about past events, PROPOR steering committee and the constitution can be found in
