========================================================== 3rd Call for Papers CLiC-it 2019 (Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics) Bari, 13-15 November 2019

**Regular, Position and Survey Papers submission deadline: 30/06/2019** http://clic2019.di.uniba.it/ ==========================================================

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 high-level, 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 fields.

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 open 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 — http://www.ai-lc.it).

**Invited Speakers** Raquel Fernández, ILLC, University of Amsterdam, The Netherland Title: Visually-grounded dialogue models: past, present, and future

Andrea Moro, IUSS - School for Advanced Studies of Pavia, Italy Title: Impossible languages and the architecture of human grammars

**Tutorial** Dirk Hovy, Bocconi University - Milan, Italy Title: Recognizing and reducing bias in NLP applications

Requirements 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 Multilinguality 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.

Submission Format 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.

Awards 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”.
