Call For Papers

2nd Workshop on Natural Language for Artificial Intelligence (NL4AI)
at the 17th International Conference of the Italian Association for
Artificial Intelligence, Trento
- Paper submission deadline: August 8th, 2018
- Notification of paper acceptance: September 22th, 2018
- Camera-ready version deadline: October 20th, 2018
- Workshop (at AI*IA 2018): November 20th-23rd, 2018
The goal of the workshop “Natural Language for Artificial
Intelligence” (NL4AI) is to explore the area situated at the
intersection between Natural Language Processing and Artificial
Intelligence. Even though we acknowledge the existence of a promising
ground where these two disciplines can benefit from each other, we
also believe this area is not only "populated" of technological
challenges that, at turn, make one discipline play an ancillary role
for the other. In fact, we believe that at the crossroad between NLP
and AI, new technological paradigms rise from a cross-fertilization
where each discipline makes a equal contribution: these resulting
methodologies and technologies can change our reality and their
societal impact has not yet been fully-fledged.

We invite papers that pertain to the workshop theme including but not
limited to:

Cognitive modeling and psycholinguistics
- NLP and AI applications in the Web era
- Natural Language Interfaces for Human Robot Interaction
- Speech for Conversational Agents or Human Robot Interaction
- Language, Vision and Cognition
- Resources and evaluation for NLP based AI systems
- Position papers on the role of NLP in AI and societal impact
- Dialog and interactive systems
- Discourse and Pragmatics
- Natural Language Generation
- 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


Position and Short paper: 6 pages
Demos: 6 pages
Long papers: 12 pages

We encourage submissions that describe new theoretical models, applied
techniques, and research in progress. However, contributions that have
been already published or presented in other locations are welcomed.
Depending if the authors transferred the right of publishing their
work exclusively to a specific editor (e.g. IEEE/ACM conferences and
journals), we might not be able to include the submission into the
proceedings. In such a case, the work will be only mentioned in the
Submissions should be prepared according to the main conference format
(Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science). All submissions
should be written in English and submitted as PDF. 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:
At least one author of an accepted paper must attend the workshop to
present the work.
The accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings via
CEUR Workshop Proceedings. We will also consider editing a special
issue on The Italian Journal of Computational Linguistics
( after the workshop by encouraging the
participants to extend their papers.
