The Third International Conference on Arabic Computational Linguistics (ACLing2017)
Dubai, UAE, 5-6 November 2017


The forthcoming International Conference on Arabic Computational Linguistics (ACLing2017)will take place in Dubai on 5 and 6 November 2017 (


The Third International Conference on Arabic Computational Linguistic (ACLing2017) will be held in Dubai in November, 2017. ACLing2017 aims to bring together leading academicians, scientists, researchers and practitioners from all over the world to exchange new ideas and the latest results in Arabic Computational Linguistics and NLP. The field has become increasingly important, as more and more Arabic information is now available through the Web, Social Media and Intranet services. We invite you to participate in ACLing2017 and we are confident that you will find the program enriching, enlightening and rewarding.

Conference topics

ACLing2017 invites researchers from academia and industry to submit their papers on recent, unpublished research that addresses theoretical aspects, algorithms, and architectures of Arabic Natural Language Processing systems. Papers describing the creation of resources, as well as survey and discussion papers, are also welcomed.
We encourage submissions dealing with the following topics:

* Information Retrieval and Question Answering
* Linguistic Theories and Resources
* Machine Learning
* Machine Translation
* Multilinguality and Cross-linguality
* NLP Applications
* Segmentation, Tagging, and Parsing
* Semantics
* Sentiment Analysis and Opinion Mining
* Web, Social Media and Computational Social Science

Submission and Publication

The conference invites submissions reporting original unpublished work that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. All the accepted papers will be published in the Procedia Computer Science ( by ELSEVIER. Every peer-reviewed research article appearing in Procedia Computer Science will be published open access and will have a DOI assigned. Procedia Computer Science (ISSN: 1877-0509) of this series is indexed by ISI Proceedings, EI-Compendex, DBLP, SCOPUS, and Google Scholar.

ACLing2017 invites two types of submissions which should be structured as technical papers:

* Long papers: these manuscripts will not be exceeding 8 pages including including figures, tables and references. The accepted regular papers will be published in the Procedia Computer Science by ELSEVIER which will be available online at the time of the conference.

* Short papers: these manuscripts will not be exceeding 4 pages including including figures, tables and references. The accepted regular papers will be published in the same Procedia Computer Science by ELSEVIER which will be available online at the time of the conference.
