CLiC**-it 2018 - Fifth Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics

Deadline : 0000


**CLiC**-it 2018 - Fifth Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics ****

*Final Call for Papers**
*10-12 December 2018, Turin, Italy

Co-located with EVALITA 2018 (

The Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics, CLiC-it, aims at
establishing a reference forum for the Italian community of researchers
working in the fields of Computational Linguistics (CL) and Natural
Language Processing (NLP). CLiC-it promotes and disseminates high-level,
original research on all aspects of automatic language processing, both
written and spoken, and targets state-of-the-art theoretical results,
experimental methodologies, technologies, as well as application
perspectives, which may contribute to the advancement of the CL and NLP

The spirit of the conference is inclusive. In the conviction that the
complexity of language phenomena needs cross-disciplinary competences,
CLiC-it intends to bring together researchers of related disciplines
such as Computational Linguistics, Natural Language Processing,
Linguistics, Cognitive Science, Machine Learning, Computer Science,
Knowledge Representation, Information Retrieval, and Digital Humanities.
CLiC-it is open to contributions on all languages, with a particular
emphasis on Italian.

The fifth edition of CLiC-it will be held in Turin, on 10-12 December,
2018. The conference will be followed by EVALITA 2018
(, the 6th evaluation campaign of Natural
Language Processing and speech tools for the Italian language. Both
CLiC-it and EVALITA are initiatives of the Italian Association of
Computational Linguistics (AILC —


The conference invites the submission of papers on all aspects of
automated language processing. Relevant topics for the conference
include, but are not limited to, the following areas :

* /Language and Cognition/
* /Dialogue, Discourse and Natural Language Generation/
* /Information Extraction, Information Retrieval and Question
* /Linguistic Issues in CL and NLP/
* /Language Resources/
* /Machine Learning for NLP/
* /Machine Translation and Multilinguality/
* /Morphology and Syntax Processing/
* /NLP for Digital Humanities/
* /NLP for Web and Social Media/
* /Pragmatics and Creativity/
* /Research and Industrial NLP Applications/
* /Semantics and Knowledge Representation/
* /Spoken Language Processing and Automatic Speech Understanding/

CLiC-it 2018 has the goal of a broad technical program. We invite papers
in theoretical computational linguistics, empirical/data-driven
approaches, resources and their evaluation, as well as NLP applications
and tools. We also invite papers describing a challenge in the field,
position papers, survey papers, and papers that describe a negative

*Submission Format*

Papers may consist of up to four (4) pages of content, and two (2)
additional pages of references. Papers can be either in English or
Italian, with the abstract both in English and Italian. Accepted papers
will be published on-line and will be presented at the conference either
orally or as a poster. For research communications (see above) a two (2)
page abstract is required. The deadline for all types of submissions has
been *extended to 25/07 for regular papers and to 31/08 for research

Submissions should follow the ACL two-column format. We strongly
recommend the use of LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word style files
according to the ACL format, which will be available on the conference
website under “Information for Authors”.
Submission must be electronic in PDF, by using the following Easychair
submission software link : .

Reviewing will NOT be blind, so there is no need to remove author
information from manuscripts.

*Research Communications*

We are also favouring a parallel submission policy for outstanding
papers that have been submitted and accepted elsewhere in 2018. If you
are the author of a paper accepted at a major international CL
conference or journal in 2018, you can present your work at CLiC-it 2018
in the form of a short research communication, within a dedicated
session at the conference. Research communications will not be published
in the proceedings, but are mostly intended to enforce dissemination of
excellence in research within the Italian CL community.
Please note that, in order to allow the submission of papers that will
be presented at some relevant international conferences in the last
months of this year, *the Research Communication have a different
deadline* with respect to the regular papers (see below).


In order to award the work of young researchers, the title of “best
paper” will be attributed to the best papers in different research areas
with a PhD student and/or postDoc among the authors and presenting the
work at the conference. The awarded authors will be invited to submit an
extended version of their papers to the Italian Journal of Computational
Linguistics (IJCoL).

To recognise excellence in student research as well as promote awareness
of our field and with the endorsement of AILC, we are conferring a prize
for the best Master Thesis (Laurea Magistrale) in Computational
Linguistics submitted at an Italian University. The prize consists of
500 euro plus free membership to AILC for one year and free registration
to the upcoming CLiC-it, where the author will have the chance to
present her/his thesis. The complete call is available on the conference
website under the path : “Calls > AILC Master Thesis Award”.
