The foreign convention on Computational Processing of Portuguese—PROPOR —is the most occasion within the zone of traditional language processing that's all for Portuguese and the theoretical and technological matters on the topic of this language. It w- comes contributions for either written and spoken language processing. the development is hosted in Brazil and in Portugal. The conferences were held in Lisbon/Portugal (1993), Curitiba/Brazil (1996), Porto Alegre/Brazil (1998), Évora/ Portugal (1999), Atibaia/Brazil (2000), Faro/Portugal (2003), Itatiaia/Brazil (2006) and Aveiro/Portugal (2008). This assembly has been a hugely efficient discussion board for the development of this zone and to foster the cooperation one of the researchers engaged on the automatic processing of the Portuguese language. PROPOR brings jointly study teams, selling the advance of methodologies, assets and initiatives that may be shared between all researchers and practitioners within the box. The 9th version of this occasion used to be held in Porto Alegre, Brazil, at Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS). It had major tracks: one for language processing and one other one for speech processing. This occasion hosted a distinct Demonstration consultation and the 1st version of the PhD and MSc Dissertation Contest, which aimed toward spotting the easiest educational paintings on processing of the Portuguese language within the previous few years. This variation of the development featured tutorials on statistical laptop translation and on speech attractiveness, in addition to invited talks through well known researchers of traditional language processing.

The approach is based on multilingual domain-specific grammars and exploits weakly supervised machine learning algorithms for lexical acquisition. We report on the process of adapting an already existing event extraction system for the domain of conflicts and crises to the Portuguese language. 1 Introduction The multilingual event extraction system NEXUS, which is part of the Europe Media Monitor family of applications (EMM) [1], aims at identifying violent events, man made and natural disasters and humanitarian crises in news reports.
