*** CLiC-it 2016 - Third Italian Conference on Computational
Linguistics *** Conference Announcement and First Call for
5-6 December 2016, Napoli, Italy

Co-located with EVALITA 2016 (

CLiC-it, Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics, is
aimed at establishing a reference forum for research on
Computational Linguistics organized by the recently founded
Italian Association of Computational Linguistics (AILC - Together with the co-located EVALITA
evaluation campaign specifically devoted to Natural Language
Processing and Speech tools for Italian, the conference is
intended to meet the need for a national and international
forum for the promotion and dissemination of high-level
original research in the field of Computational Linguistics
(CL) by the Italian community. CLIC-it covers all aspects of
automatic language understanding, both written and spoken,
and targets state-of-the-art theoretical results,
experimental methodologies, technologies, as well as
application perspectives, which may contribute to advance
the field.

The third edition of CLiC-it will be held in Napoli, at the
University “Federico II”.

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

- Cognitive modeling of language processing and
- NLP for Digital Humanities
- Information Retrieval and Question Answering
- Information Extraction, Entity Linking and (Linked) Open
- Linguistic Resources
- Machine Translation and Multilingual Applications
- Pragmatics, Creativity and Linguistic Games
- Semantics and Knowledge Acquisition
- Spoken language processing and understanding
- Morphology and Syntax Processing
- NLP for Web and Social Media
- Linguistic Issues in CL and NLP
- Machine Learning for CL and NLP


CLiC-it 2016 has the goal of a broad technical program. We
invite papers in the following four broad categories:
theoretical computational linguistics, empirical/data-driven
approaches, resources/evaluation, applications/tools. We
also invite papers describing a challenge in the field,
position papers, survey papers, and papers that describe a
negative result.

Papers may consist of up to four (4) pages of content, and
two (2) additional pages of references. Paper 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.
The deadline for paper submissions is July 15, 2016.

Paper submissions should follow the 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
soon available on the conference website under
"Submissions". Submission must be electronic in PDF, using
the Easychair submission software.

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