CLiC-it, Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics, aims to establish a reference forum for research on Computational Linguistics of the Italian community. CLiC-it covers all aspects of automatic language understanding, both written and spoken, and targets state-of-art theoretical results, experimental methodologies, technologies, as well as application perspectives, which may contribute to advance the field.

The second edition of CLiC-it will be held in Trento, at Fondazione Bruno Kessler.

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 LinguisticsLinguisticsCognitive ScienceMachine LearningComputer ScienceKnowledge RepresentationInformation Retrieval and Digital Humanities.

CLiC-it is open to contributions on all languages, with a particular emphasis on Italian.

CLIC-it 2015 CALL FOR PAPERS

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

Information extraction and Information retrieval
Linguistic resources
Machine Translation
Morphology, Syntax and Parsing
NLP for Digital Humanities
NLP for the Web and Social Media
Pragmatics and Creativity
Semantics and Knowledge Acquisition
Spoken Language Processing


*NEW TRACK: Towards Evalita 2016: challenges, methodologies and tasks*

We present also a call for the Track “Towards EVALITA 2016: challenges, methodologies and tasks” mainly devoted to creating a forum for discussion on existing and new evaluation methodologies. The track will include also, but will not be limited to, the proposal of possible tasks and the description of experiences in industrial contexts. This new track can be therefore seen as a bridge between EVALITA 2014 and EVALITA 2016 and it will prepare the ground for the new edition of the campaign.


SUBMISSION INFORMATION FOR REGULAR PAPERS

CLiC-it 2015 has the goal of a broad technical program. We invite original papers (i.e. previously unpublished) in the following four broad categories: theoretical computational linguistics, empirical/data-driven approaches, resources/evaluation, applications/tools. We also invite papers describing a challenge in the field, position papers, survey papers, and papers that describe a negative result.

Papers may consist of up to four (4) pages of content, and two (2) additional pages of references. Papers can be either in English or Italian, with the abstract both in English and Italian. Accepted papers will be published on-line and will be presented at the conference either orally or as a poster. The deadline for paper submissions is July 15, 2015.
Paper submissions should follow the 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 soon available on the conference website under “Submissions”. Submission must be electronic in PDF, using the Easychair submission software.

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

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings, which will be published online.


SUBMISSION INFORMATION FOR THE TRACK “TOWARDS EVALITA 2016: challenges, methodologies and tasks”

The task proposals may consist of up to four (4) pages of content, and two (2) additional page of references. The proposals must be written in English and they must be of one of the following types: a) task proposal to be organized in EVALITA 2016, b) declaration of interest from industrial subjects and c) discussion on evaluation methodologies.

YOUNG AUTHOR BEST PAPER AWARDS

In order to award the work of young researchers, the title of “best paper” will be attributed to the best 5 papers in different research areas which satisfy one of the following requirements: a) submitted by a single PhD student or postDoc, with or without her/his supervisor as second author, b) submitted by 2 or more PhD students or postDocs. The awarded authors will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers to the journal of the Association for Italian Computational Linguistics. Moreover, the author of the first ranked paper will be awarded a cash prize and will give an oral presentation.

Care amiche e cari amici, mi rivolgo a tutti voi, sia coloro che sono già soci sia coloro che lo sono stati sia coloro che non hanno ancora mai aderito e che ci seguono da lontano. Siamo tutti consapevoli che le Digital Humanities sono un settore estremamente promettente, che in Italia però sta tardando ad emergere, in particolare nei termini di un riconoscimento disciplinare e quindi accademico. Nel 2011 abbiamo fondato l’Associazione Informatica Umanistica e Culture Digitali proprio per contribuire ad una riflessione critica sul tema e a una concreta attività di promozione e valorizzazione, anche in sede istituzionale. In questi anni abbiamo ottenuto importanti […]
