*** CLiC-it 2016 - Third Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics ***
Conference Announcement and First 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 following areas:

- Cognitive modeling of language processing and psycholinguistics
- NLP for Digital Humanities
- Information Retrieval and Question Answering
- Information Extraction, Entity Linking and (Linked) Open Data
- Linguistic Resources
- Machine Translation and Multilingual Applications
- Pragmatics, Creativity and Linguistic Games
- Semantics and Knowledge Acquisition
- Spoken language processing and understanding
- Morphology and Syntax Processing
- NLP for Web and Social Media
- Linguistic Issues in CL and NLP
- Machine Learning for CL and NLP


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