Natural language processing techniques are advancing very quickly. The reason behind that is the continuous emergence of many challenges related to natural languages. Some of these emerged techniques that proved their efficiency are deep learning and neural machine translation.

Through this special issue, we expect original and high quality papers discussing innovative approaches dealing with the following topics:

  • Signal processing, acoustic modeling
  • Architecture of speech recognition system
  • Deep learning for speech recognition
  • Analysis of speech
  • Paralinguistics in Speech and Language
  • Pathological speech and language
  • Speech coding
  • Speech comprehension
  • Summarization
  • Speech Translation
  • Speech synthesis
  • Speaker and language identification
  • Phonetics, phonology and prosody
  • Cognition and natural language processing
  • Information retrieval
  • Text categorization
  • Sentiment analysis and opinion mining
  • Computational Social Web
  • Arabic dialects processing
  • Under-resourced languages: tools and corpora
  • New language models
  • Arabic OCR
