Natural Language has always been a measure source of information.Many research communities are devoted towards specifically carving out intelligent approach to deal with natural languages. The ‘Natural Language Processing (NLP)’ research group at National Institute of Technology Silchar has showcased promising research performance in a number of NLP application domains, such as Information Retrieval, Machine Translation, Question Answering, and so on. The group is characterized by a number of dedicated scholars and faculties who hold several years of expertise in the aforesaid domains. The group has also shown active participation in funded research projects, conferences of international repute and Journal which concern NLP and its allied domains. Moreover, the publications in reputed international journals reflect global competence of the group.Therefore, to promote future research and to ensure establishment of key facilities, creation of“Center for Natural Language Processing” was inevitable. The center will gain familiarity with state-of-the-art techniques to ensure sustained research development in the field of NLP.
