Call For Papers

2nd Call for Papers
Clic-it 2019 (Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics)
Bari, 13-15 November 2019

**Regular, Position and Survey Papers submission deadline: 30/06/2019**

The Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics, CLiC-it, aims at
establishing a reference forum for the Italian community of
researchers working in the fields of Computational Linguistics (CL)
and Natural Language Processing (NLP). CLiC-it promotes and
disseminates high-level, original research on all aspects of automatic
language processing, both written and spoken, and targets
state-of-the-art theoretical results, experimental methodologies,
technologies, as well as application perspectives, which may
contribute to the advancement of the CL and NLP fields.

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, Natural Language Processing,
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 sixth edition of CLiC-it will be held in Bari, on 13-15 November,
2019. CLiC-it is an initiative of the Italian Association of
Computational Linguistics (AILC —

**Invited Speakers**
Raquel Fernández, ILLC, University of Amsterdam, The Netherland
Andrea Moro, IUSS - School for Advanced Studies of Pavia, Italy

Dirk Hovy, Bocconi University - Milan, Italy

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

Dialogue, Discourse and Natural Language Generation
Entity Linking, Open Data and Data Science
Explainability of Deep Learning models for NLP
Information Extraction, Information Retrieval and Question Answering
Knowledge Representation
Language Resources and Evaluation
Lexical Semantics
Linguistic Issues in CL and NLP
Linguistic Theories, Cognitive Modelling and Psycholinguistics
Machine Translation
Morphology and Syntax Processing
NLP for Digital Humanities
NLP for Web and Social Media
Pragmatics and Creativity
Research and Industrial NLP Applications
Replicable and Reproducible methods
Sentence-level Semantics
Spoken Language Processing and Automatic Speech Understanding
Vision, Robotics, Multimodal and Grounding

CLiC-it 2019 has the goal of a broad technical program. We invite
papers in theoretical computational linguistics, empirical/data-driven
approaches, resources and their evaluation, as well as NLP
applications and tools. We also invite papers describing a challenge
in the field, position papers, survey papers, and papers that describe
a negative result.

Submission Format
This year the conference will accept the following types of papers:

Regular papers
Position papers
Survey papers

Research communications
Regular and Position papers may consist of up to five (5) pages of
content, and two (2) additional pages of references. Survey papers may
consist of up to six (6) pages of content, and unlimited additional
pages of references. Papers can be either in English or Italian, with
the abstract both in English and Italian for papers in Italian. Papers
in English are encouraged. Accepted papers will be published on-line
and will be presented at the conference either orally or as a poster.
For Research communications (see below) a two (2) page abstract is

Submissions should follow the ACL 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 available on the conference
website under “Information for Authors”.

Submissions must be electronic in PDF, by using the EasyChair
submission software (the EasyChair link will be available soon).

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

Research Communications
We are also favouring a parallel submission policy for outstanding
papers that have been submitted and accepted elsewhere in 2019. If you
are the author of a paper accepted at a major international CL
conference or journal in 2019, you can present your work at CLiC-it
2019 in the form of a short research communication, within a dedicated
session at the conference. Research communications will not be
published in the proceedings, but are mostly intended to enforce
dissemination of excellence in research within the Italian CL

In order to award the work of young researchers, the title of “best
paper” will be attributed to the best paper in different research
areas with a Master/PhD student as the first author and presenting the
work at the conference. The awarded authors will be invited to submit
an extended version of their papers to the Italian Journal of
Computational Linguistics (IJCoL).

To recognise excellence in student research as well as promote
awareness of our field and with the endorsement of AILC, we are
conferring a prize for the best Master Thesis (Laurea Magistrale) in
Computational Linguistics submitted at an Italian University. The
prize consists of 500 euros plus free membership to AILC for one year
and free registration to the upcoming CLiC-it, where the author will
have the chance to present her/his thesis. The complete call will be
available on the conference website under the path: “Calls ) AILC
Master Thesis Award”.
