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. The submissions should be at least 4 pages and should not exceed 8 pages of content in the adopted format, plus two extra pages for references. 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 to the main conference or to the special session on wordnets and ontologies.
As reviewing will be double blind, the submissions should be anonymised with regard to the authors and/or their institutional affiliation and should not contain any other author-identifying information, including self-references revealing the author’s identity. Each submission will be reviewed by at least two anonymous reviewers.
Additional information and CLIB 2020 style guidelines are available at the conference site: http://dcl.bas.bg/clib/instructions-for-authors/.
Submission and reviewing will be managed online by the EasyChair conference management system through the CLIB 2020 login page (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=clib2020).
Shortly after the conference, the proceedings will be submitted for review to Clarivate Analytics with a view to being indexed in Web of Science. The proceedings from CLIB 2016 and CLIB 2018 have received positive evaluation and have been already indexed in the citation database.
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).
We are pleased to announce that CLIB 2020’s invited speakers will be:
Prof. Galya Angelova – Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences: Tag Sense Disambiguation in Large Image Collections: Is It Possible?
Assoc. Prof. Svetla Boytcheva – Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences: Clinical Natural Language Processing in Bulgarian
