                    1st Call for Papers - CLiC-it 2019

Sixth Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics

                               to be held in

                    Bari, Italy - 13-15 November 2019


                          Deadline June 30, 2019



The Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics, CLiC-it, aims at
establishing a reference forum for the Italian community of 

researchers working in the fields of Computational Linguistics (CL) and
Natural Language Processing (NLP). CLiC-it promotes and disseminates

original research on all aspects of automatic language processing, both
written and spoken, and targets state-of-the-art theoretical results, 

experimental methodologies, technologies, as well as application
perspectives, which may contribute to the advancement of the CL and NLP


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, Natural Language Processing, Linguistics, 

Cognitive Science, Machine Learning, Computer Science, Knowledge
Representation, Information Retrieval, and Digital Humanities. CLiC-it is

to contributions on all languages, with a particular emphasis on Italian.


The sixth edition of CLiC-it will be held in Bari, on 13-15 November, 2019.
CLiC-it is an initiative of the Italian Association of Computational 

Linguistics (AILC —




The conference invites the submission of papers on all aspects of automated
language processing. Relevant topics for the conference include, 

but are not limited to, the following ones:


Dialogue, Discourse and Natural Language Generation

Entity Linking, Open Data and Data Science 

Explainability of Deep Learning models for NLP 

Information Extraction, Information Retrieval and Question Answering

Knowledge Representation

Language Resources and Evaluation

Lexical Semantics 

Linguistic Issues in CL and NLP

Linguistic Theories, Cognitive Modelling and Psycholinguistics

Machine Translation 

Morphology and Syntax Processing


NLP for Digital Humanities

NLP for Web and Social Media

Pragmatics and Creativity

Research and Industrial NLP Applications

Replicable and Reproducible methods

Sentence-level Semantics 

Spoken Language Processing and Automatic Speech Understanding

Vision, Robotics, Multimodal and Grounding


CLiC-it 2019 has the goal of a broad technical program. We invite papers in
theoretical computational linguistics, empirical/data-driven approaches, 

resources and their evaluation, as well as NLP applications and tools. We
also invite papers describing a challenge in the field, position papers, 

survey papers, and papers that describe a negative result.




This year the conference will accept the following types of papers:

•             Regular papers

•             Position papers

•             Survey papers

•             Research communications 


Regular and Position papers may consist of up to five (5) pages of content,
and two (2) additional pages of references. Survey papers may 

consist of up to six (6) pages of content, and unlimited additional pages of
references. Papers can be either in English or Italian, 

with the abstract both in English and Italian for papers in Italian. Papers
in English are encouraged. Accepted papers will be published 

on-line and will be presented at the conference either orally or as a
poster. For Research communications (see below) a two (2) page abstract 

is required. 


Submissions should follow the ACL 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 available on the conference website under
“Information for Authors”.

Submissions must be electronic in PDF, by using the EasyChair submission
software (the EasyChair link will be available soon).

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


Research Communications

We are also favouring a parallel submission policy for outstanding papers
that have been submitted and accepted elsewhere in 2019. If you are 

the author of a paper accepted at a major international CL conference or
journal in 2019, you can present your work at CLiC-it 2019 

in the form of a short research communication, within a dedicated session at
the conference. Research communications will not be published 

in the proceedings, but are mostly intended to enforce dissemination of
excellence in research within the Italian CL community. 



In order to award the work of young researchers, the title of “best paper”
will be attributed to the best paper in different research 

areas with a Master/PhD student as the first author and presenting the work
at the conference. The awarded authors will be invited to 

submit an extended version of their papers to the Italian Journal of
Computational Linguistics (IJCoL).

To recognise excellence in student research as well as promote awareness of
our field and with the endorsement of AILC, we are conferring 

a prize for the best Master Thesis (Laurea Magistrale) in Computational
Linguistics submitted at an Italian University. The prize consists 

of 500 euros plus free membership to AILC for one year and free registration
to the upcoming CLiC-it, where the author will have the chance 

to present her/his thesis. The complete call will be available on the
conference website under the path: “Calls > AILC Master Thesis Award”.
