Natural	
   Language	
   Processing	
   (NLP)	
   aims	
   to	
   analyze,	
   understand,	
   and	
   generate	
   languages	
   that	
  
humans	
   use	
   naturally.	
   	
   Significant	
   progress	
   in	
   NLP	
   has	
   been	
   achieved	
   in	
   recent	
   years,	
   addressing	
  
important	
   and	
   practical	
   real--‐world	
   problems,	
   enabling	
   mass	
   deployment	
   of	
   large--‐scale	
   systems.	
  	
  
New	
   machine	
   learning	
   paradigms	
   such	
   as	
   deep	
   learning	
   and	
   continuous	
   space	
   methods	
   have	
  
contributed	
   to	
   inferring	
   language	
   patterns	
   from	
   increasingly	
   large	
   real--‐world	
   data	
   and	
   to	
   making	
  
predictions	
  about	
  new	
  data	
  more	
  accurate.	
  	
  
One	
  of	
  the	
  challenges	
  in	
  NLP	
  is	
  to	
  represent	
  language	
  in	
  a	
  form	
  that	
  can	
  be	
  processed	
  effectively	
  by	
  
computing	
  algorithms.	
  Words	
  in	
  sequence	
  are	
  traditionally	
  treated	
  as	
  discrete	
  symbols,	
  which	
  has	
  its	
  
advantages	
  and	
  limitations.	
  	
  The	
  research	
  on	
  continuous	
  space	
  methods	
  provides	
  a	
  promising	
  
alternative	
  that	
  describes	
  words	
  and	
  their	
  semantic	
  and	
  syntactic	
  relationships	
  in	
  a	
  different	
  way.	
  In	
  
continuous	
  space	
  language	
  modeling,	
  we	
  represent	
  words	
  with	
  real--‐valued	
  vectors.	
  In	
  this	
  way,	
  
conditional	
  probability	
  distributions	
  of	
  words	
  can	
  be	
  learned	
  and	
  expressed	
  as	
  smooth	
  functions	
  of	
  
these	
  vectors;	
  similar	
  words	
  are	
  therefore	
  described	
  as	
  neighbors	
  in	
  a	
  continuous	
  space.	
  	
  A	
  Neural	
  
Network	
  Language	
  Model	
  is	
  a	
  typical	
  example	
  of	
  such	
  continuous	
  space	
  methods.	
  
	
  
Building	
  on	
  the	
  success	
  of	
  acoustic	
  and	
  statistical	
  language	
  modeling,	
  research	
  on	
  artificial	
  (deep)	
  
neural	
  networks	
  and	
  continuous	
  space	
  models	
  in	
  general	
  has	
  seen	
  significant	
  progress	
  in	
  mitigating	
  
data	
  sparseness,	
  incorporating	
  longer	
  contexts,	
  and	
  modeling	
  morphological,	
  syntactic	
  and	
  semantic	
  
relationships	
  across	
  words.	
  As	
  a	
  result,	
  continuous	
  space	
  models	
  are	
  now	
  embedded	
  in	
  many	
  state--‐
of--‐the--‐art	
  speech	
  recognition	
  and	
  machine	
  translation	
  systems.	
  This	
  special	
  issue	
  provides	
  a	
  forum	
  
to	
  discuss	
  the	
  latest	
  findings	
  on	
  research	
  problems	
  related	
  to	
  the	
  application	
  of	
  continuous	
  space	
  
and	
  related	
  models	
  in	
  NLP.	
  We	
  invite

  various	
  NLP	
  topics,
