Call For Papers

The 3rd IEEE Conference on "Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing: Models, Systems, Data and Applications" will be held within IEEE CiSt'18, on 21st - 24th October, Marrakech Morocco.

Language technologies and digital resources such as lexical databases, ontologies and corpora are instrumental to millions of people who use them every day without even being aware of them. Systems like Google Translate and web search engines rely more and more on levels of linguistic information automatically provided through NLP tools, and on huge repositories of structured language data. This development has deeply affected the way we think about language from a scientific perspective. Linguists have progressively turned their focus from abstract properties of language to the dynamics of its usage in communicative contexts. There is increasing awareness that language digital repositories, technologies and computational models of language processes not only shed considerable light on traditional issues in language and literary studies but may also lead to a radical reconceptualization of them. Aspects of language acquisition, lexical access, speech recognition, text translation, text analysis, ontology extraction, reading and optical character recognition can be put to a rigorous empirical test through computer simulations. Likewise, corpora, lexical databases and ontologies have helped us focus on the nature of language data from a different perspective. From this standpoint, digital data and computer technologies provide an empirical middle ground where interdisciplinary insights can be empirically assessed and integrated.


This conference is intended to explore and debate the contribution of computational language models and language data to a better understanding of linguistic, psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic, historical and literary issues of the Arabic language and culture. We particularly welcome contributions addressing fundamental aspects of NLP, communication technology, language resources and automated text analysis by looking at their implications for both state-of-the-art language technologies and language knowledge at large.
