INTRODUCTION
The goal of the NL4AI workshop is to explore the role of Natural Language and Natural Language Processing in Artificial Intelligence applications. We believe that new technological challenges and opportunities rise at the boundary between NLP and AI. On the one hand, AI applications benefit from a deeper understanding of problems related to Natural Language, and thus the integration of advanced NLP methods. On the other hand, NLP benefits greatly from being used in wider areas of AI where problems and methodologies related to NL can be evaluated in new contexts. We encourage papers exploring the application of NLP approaches to tasks in specific AI areas, e.g. NLP4Robotics, NLP4Vision, NLP4Health, NLP4CulturalHeritage, and so on.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
We invite papers that pertain to the workshop theme including, but not limited, to:

NLP and AI applications in the Web era
Natural Language Interfaces for Human Robot Interaction
Resources and evaluation for NLP based AI systems
Position papers on the role of NLP in AI and societal impact
Discourse and Pragmatics
Natural Language Generation
NLP and AI applications in the Health domain
Information extraction and general NLP and AI applications (including but not limited to text mining, semantic analytics, question answering, document analysis, text categorization, topic models, retrieval)
Machine Learning for NLP
Sentiment analysis and Opinion mining
Natural Language Inference
Natural Language Processing and Industrial Challenges
Semantic Web, including role of Ontologies and Knowledge Graphs for Natural Language Processing
Conversational Agents in Human-Computer Interaction
Natural Language in Vision and Cognition
Cognitive modeling and psycholinguistics


Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings via CEUR Workshop Proceedings.
A selection of the best papers presented at the AI*IA workshops will be invited to submit an extended version for a journal publication.


HOW TO SUBMIT
We encourage submissions that describe new theoretical models, applied techniques, and research in progress. Substantial extensions to works already published or presented in other locations are also welcomed. We also consider works presented in other venues to be presented in the workshop, but they will not be published in the workshop proceedings.
Submissions should be prepared according to the main conference format (Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science, see: https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines).
All submissions should be written in English and submitted as PDF. The page limit is 12 pages (plus bibliography) for research papers and 6 pages (plus bibliography) for demo and position papers. Please note that paper with less than 10 pages will be considered short papers in the CEUR proceedings. Submissions will be peer reviewed (single-blind) by the program committee members. Evaluation criteria will include novelty, significance for theory/practice, technical soundness, and quality of presentation. All the submissions should be submitted via EasyChair (link will be available on the website).

Due to COVID-19, the 19th International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AIxIA 2020) will be held in an online format "anywhere" in the world, rather than in a single physical place. As a consequence, accepted papers will be presented through short videos published on Vimeo. Videos and slides of the presentations will be made available to the participants before the events. When submitting the camera ready of an accepted paper, authors commit themselves to produce a video presentation of their work, to be shown at the workshop.

The participation to the AIxIA 2020 and the workshop will be free of charges but membership to AIxIA will be required. Membership annual fees start from 20 EUR and the registration to the association is already available: https://aixia.it/en/diventa-socio/
The interaction between participants will be enabled asynchronously via Slack, while some “online” events and presentations will be provided via Google Meet and Youtube streaming.

More details about the organization of the workshop and the conference will be also provided at https://aixia2020.di.unito.it/attending.
