The researchpapersin this volumecomprisethe proceedingsofIceTAL 2010,an international conference on natural language processing (NLP). IceTAL was the seventh in the series of the TAL conferences, following GoTAL 2008 (Goth- burg, Sweden), FinTAL 2006 (Turku, Finland), EsTAL 2004 (Alicante, Spain), PorTAL2002(Faro,Portugal),VexTAL1999(Venice, Italy),andFracTAL1997 (Besancon,France).ThemaingoaloftheTALconferenceserieshasbeentobring together scientists representing linguistics, computer science, and related ?elds, sharing a common interest in the advancement of computational linguistics and NLP. IceTAL 2010, organized by the Icelandic Centre for Language Technology (ICLT) in Reykjavik, Iceland, successfully contributed to these goals. Our Program Committee (PC) consisted of 45 recognized researchers and professionals in the ?eld of NLP from Belgium, China, Cuba, Denmark, F- land, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and the United States. We called for submissions both from academia and the industry on any topic that is of interest to the NLP community, particularly encouraging research - phasizingmultidisciplinaryaspectsofNLPandtheinterplaybetweenlinguistics, computer science, and application domains such as biomedicine, communication systems, public services, and educational technology.
