Texts are one of the most important records of human expertise, therefore being of paramount importance for mining both general and specific knowledge. Over the past few years the role of Natural Language Processing (NLP) for mining information from textual sources has gained relevance due to the now massive availability of textual information on-line and the need to access, distill, and organize the contents held in this wealth of unstructured information.
This special issue of IJACSA aims to bring together articles that report advances in Natural Language Processing, both experimental as well practical applications, related to the exploitation and distillation of textual material for information access and knowledge creation. We are therefore calling for contributions in the areas of Automatic Text Summarization, Adaptable Information Extraction and Knowledge Population, Knowledge Induction from Text, Text Simplification, Text Entailment and Learning by Reading, and Natural Language Processing for the Social Media.
