*** CLiC-it 2016 - Third Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics ***

Call for papers

5-6 December 2016, Napoli, Italy <>

co-located with EVALITA 2016 ( 

CLiC-it, Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics, is aimed at 
establishing a reference forum for research on Computational Linguistics 
organized by the recently founded Italian Association of Computational 
Linguistics (AILC - Together with the co-located EVALITA 
evaluation campaign specifically devoted to Natural Language Processing 
and Speech tools for Italian, the conference is intended to meet the 
need for a national and international forum for the promotion and 
dissemination of high-level original research in the field of 
Computational Linguistics (CL) by the Italian community. CLiC-it covers 
all aspects of automatic language understanding, both written and 
spoken, and targets state-of-the-art theoretical results, experimental 
methodologies, technologies, as well as application perspectives, which 
may contribute to advance the field.

The third edition of CLiC-it will be held in Napoli, at the University 
Federico II.

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, 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 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 thematic areas reported 
below (together with the Area Chairs):

  * Cognitive modeling of language processing and psycholinguistics (D. Crepaldi, G. Lebani, V. Pirrelli)

  * NLP for Digital Humanities (M. Passarotti, S. Tonelli)

  * Information Retrieval and Question Answering (N. Ferro, A. Moschitti)

  * Information Extraction, Entity Linking and (Linked) Open Data (V.Basile, R. Navigli)

  * Linguistic Resources (C. Bosco, M. Monachini, S. Vietri)

  * Machine Translation and Multilingual Applications (M. Cettolo, J. Monti)

  * Pragmatics, Creativity and Linguistic Games (M. de Gemmis, M. Gori, M. Poesio)

  * Semantics and Knowledge Acquisition (R. Bernardi, A. Gangemi, F.M. Zanzotto)

  * Spoken Language Processing and Understanding (P. Cosi, A. Origlia)

  * Morphology and Syntax Processing (A. Lavelli, A. Mazzei)

  * NLP for Web and Social Media (D. Croce, F. Dell'Orletta)

  * Linguistic Issues in CL and NLP (A. Lenci, P. Merlo)

  * Machine Learning for CL and NLP (G. Attardi, R. Basili)


CLiC-it 2016 has the goal of a broad technical program. We invite papers 
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. Paper 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, 2016.

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 double blind, so there is no need to remove author 
information from manuscripts.

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