Natural Language Processing (NLP) stands at the forefront of computational intelligence (CI), striving to enable computers to comprehend, interpret, and generate human language in a meaningful and contextually relevant manner. Large Language Models (LLMs) like ChatGPT, built upon state-of-the-art deep learning architectures, have revolutionized NLP and social media techniques, unlocking transformative applications across diverse domains.

The symposium titled "Natural Language Processing and Social Media" serves as an inclusive platform exploring the intricate intersections of NLP, including LLMs, social media analysis, and related topics. It serves as a convergence point for researchers dedicated to studying and applying NLP techniques, encompassing LLMs, social media analysis, and other relevant methods.

We welcome contributions addressing either theoretical advancements or practical applications in these domains. Furthermore, the symposium aims to cultivate collaboration and knowledge exchange among participants, providing networking opportunities, potential for joint projects, and interdisciplinary dialogue. Together, our objective is to advance the field of CI in NLP and social media.
