Natural Language Processing (NLP) refers to AI method of communicating with intelligent systems using a natural language such as Arabic. Processing of Natural Language is required when you want an intelligent system like robot to perform as per your instructions, when you want to hear decision from a dialogue based clinical expert system, etc. The field of NLP involves making computers to perform useful tasks with the natural languages humans use. New trends of natural language processing systems are emerging, such as big data analysis, social network analysis, Internet of things, smart services, mobile computing, computer games, to name a few. Applications of these trends have been applied to various domains including education, travel and tourism, healthcare, among others. Many issues encountered during the development of these applications are resolved by incorporating language technology solutions, which involves speech processing, text extraction and retrieval, and deep learning, which are currently attractive topics within computational linguistics research areas. The purpose of the “Advances in Natural Language Processing: Trends and application” editing book is to bring scientists, researcher scholars, practitioners, and students from academia and industry to present recent and ongoing research activities about the recent advances, techniques, and applications of natural language Processing systems and to allow the exchange of new ideas and application experiences.

This Book aims to provide a collection of high quality research works that address broad challenges in both theoretical and application aspects of intelligent natural language processing and its applications. We invite colleagues to contribute original book chapters that will stimulate the continuing effort on the application of CI approaches to solve natural language processing problems.  Various forums have been dedicated to Advances in Natural Language Processing (ANLP):  The annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL)  The Association for Computational Linguistics - European Chapter (EACL) conference  The Annual Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Human Language Technologies (NAACL-HLT)  EMNLP (Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing) conference  The International Joint Conference of the Asian Federation of Natural Language Processing (IJCNLP) and The Computational Linguistics and Intelligent Text Processing (CICLing) conference

This editing book is intended to present the state-of-the-art in research on natural language processing, computational linguistics, applied Arabic linguistics and related areas.
