Dr Advaith Siddharthan (University of Aberdeen)
Dr Andreas Stolcke (Microsoft Research)
Dr Michael Riley (Google Inc.)

The meeting has been a very rich forum for the interchange of ideas and partnerships for the research communities dedicated to the automated processing of the Portuguese language. PROPOR brings together research groups in the area, promoting the development of methodologies, linguistic resources and projects that can be shared among all researchers and practitioners in the field.

PROPOR, a triennial or biennial event, is hosted in Brazil and in Portugal . The meetings have been held in Lisbon, PT (1993)Curitiba, BR (1996)Porto Alegre, BR (1998)Évora, PT (1999)Atibaia, BR (2000)Faro, PT (2003)Itatiaia, BR (2006) ; Aveiro, PT (2008) and Porto Alegre, BR (2010) and Coimbra, PT (2012).
