CILCC 2020 - online: A View From Language Technologies and Digital


The 3rd International Congress of Computational and Corpus Linguistics is going online and
will be postponed to October 21, 22 and 23, 2020. The Congress had originally been scheduled
to take place from 29 to 31 July this year in Medellin, Colombia.

Due to the imminent expansion of the coronavirus pandemics, the Organizing Committee
came to the conclusion that it would not be possible to hold a face-to-face conference in July.
It is not certain either for how long it would be necessary to postpone it because a face-to-face
event involves people gatherings and national and international trips, among other things. Therefore,
considering the interest in the Congress by the academic community, we believe that
CILCC-2020 can be a quality event in which all our goals can be met, but in a virtual way.

Other changes come by the hand of virtuality. First, it is necessary to postpone all the dates
related to this event. This is because this new modality requires starting over with the organization
from a different perspective. Also, the deadlines for submissions are extended (see Important
dates below). It is important to make clear that the event will now be free for both attendees
and speakers.

We consider that celebrating the third CILCC online is a possibility to open up a space for science
and academia in these dark times, since a good number of these kind of events has been
postponed until the following year. In addition, we hope this option encourages many researchers
and students who previously did not have the chance to participate in the event to
submit their proposals and participate in the webinars.

The University of Antioquia, the University of Groningen and the other collaborating institutions
guarantee all the technical support so that the Congress is carried out satisfactorily online. We
invite you to participate either with your attendance or with a proposal. Please feel free share
this call with your colleagues and other institutions.

Important dates

Submission of abstracts: June 20, 2020.
Acceptance notification: July 31, 2020.
Registration process: As of August 1, 2020.
Event date: October 21-23, 2020.
Submission of abstracts

The proposal may be submitted either in Spanish or in English. The abstract must not exceed
three pages (including bibliography). Please take a look at our abstract submission guidelines
at our website, and use EasyChair to submit your abstract:

The publication of accepted works by an international publishing press remains in place.

CILCC 2020: An Overview of Language Technologies and
Digital Humanities


Computational and corpus linguistics (LCC, in Spanish) has been booming and developing in our Spanish-speaking countries, particularly in Colombia. Just in the past three years two important congresses were held in Colombia: the first in the city of Bogotá in 2017, by the Caro y Cuervo Institute; and the second, in 2018, by the University of Medellin; these congresses were preceded by the First Colombian Colloquium of Computational and Corpus Linguistics held in 2016, Universidad del Valle. On these occasions we had the opportunity to meet and discuss this topic with colleagues from Latin American countries and Spain and, in addition, there was the participation of experts from the Anglophone world.

For the year 2020, we propose, in addition to the LCC, that the event also be opened to the field of Digital Humanities, since for this occasion we will have the collaboration of the University of Groningen
and its Faculty of Arts.

That is why, from the University of Antioquia and its faculties of Communications, Engineering and the School of Languages and the University of Groningen, we are very cordially inviting you to send papers that take up one or more of the following topics:

Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing

Automatic translation
Systems modeling for natural language processing
Computer assisted Language Learning
Systems for automatic corpus tagging
Systems for speech recognition and generation

Corpus Linguistics

Online Corpora for the study of human language
Constitution of oral or written corpus
Linguistic statistics from corpus

Knowledge Management and Artificial Intelligence

Knowledge management
Information extraction
Sentiment Analysis

Digital Humanities

Computer science applied to the study of historical heritage
Computer science applied to the arts and humanities
Corpus linguistics and literature
Computational linguistics and digital humanities
Digital literacies

Demonstration of computer systems, prototypes and devices for Natural Language Processing, corpus analysis and Digital Humanities
This list is not exhaustive, so we invite you to send papers that are related to any of the event's five main topics

Submission of abstracts

The proposal should be sent in summary form in Spanish or English, and should not exceed three pages (including bibliography).

In addition, we will invite you to submit a chapter for publication in
an international publishing company, which may be in Spanish or English.
An address will be made available for submitting the abstracts:

Important dates

Submission of abstracts: March 12, 2020.
Acceptance notification: April 13, 2020.
Registration with reduced payment: Until June 30, 2020.
Full rate registrations: As of July 1, 2020.
Event date: July 29-31, 2020.
