CLIB 2020 : Computational Linguistics in Bulgaria 2020
Call For Papers
The fourth edition of the International Conference on Computational Linguistics in Bulgaria (CLIB 2020) (http://dcl.bas.bg/clib/) will be held on 8 and 9 June 2020 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
CLIB 2020 is organised by the Department of Computational Linguistics at the Institute for Bulgarian Language "Prof. Lyubomir Andreychin" and the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
CLIB covers a broad spectrum of areas related to natural language processing and computational linguistics focused on but not limited to Bulgarian.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
CLIB invites contributions on original research, including, but not limited to the following topics:
semantics, syntax, grammar and the lexicon;
cognitive, mathematical and computational models of language processing;
lexical semantics and ontologies;
linguistic annotation – POS tagging, syntactic and semantic parsing, etc.;
word sense disambiguation;
text analysis and summarisation;
NLP methods and applications (such as Machine Translation, Text-to-Speech and Speech-to-Text Generation, eLearning, etc.);
multilingual processing and applications, machine translation and translation aids.
A special session on wordnets and ontologies is envisaged.
INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS
There will be two categories of research papers: oral and poster presentations. All accepted papers will be included in the Conference proceedings.
Papers shall be submitted in English. On submission, please indicate whether you submit a paper for the main Conference or for the special session on wordnets and ontologies.
Reviewing will be double blind. Each submission will be reviewed by at least two anonymous reviewers.
The Proceedings from CLIB 2016 and CLIB 2018 are indexed in ISI Web of Science.
Additional information and CLIB 2020 style guidelines are available at the Conference site: http://dcl.bas.bg/clib/instructions-for-authors/.
We also plan to propose a selection of papers from the Conference to be published in a special issue of the CIT Journal (http://www.cit.iit.bas.bg/), which publishes research in the areas of artificial intelligence and linguistic modelling, among others. The journal has a SJR (Scientific Journal Ranking) value (SJR 2018 = 0.215, SNIP 2018 = 0.595, CiteScore 2018 = 0.84).
