Meeting Description: CICLing 2013: 14th International Conference on Intelligent Text Processing and Computational Linguistics
Samos, Greece, March 24-30, 2013

CICLing 2013 is a major international conference devoted to a wide variety of topics in computational linguistics, natural language processing, human language technologies and related areas. The proceedings of CICLing 2013 are anticipated to be published in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and are expected to be indexed by ISI Conference Citation index, EI, DBLP and other major indices; poster session papers will be published separately in a special issue of a journal. Acceptance rate of the previous events was around 25%. We expect participation of about 100 attendees. The conference is ranked by ArnetMiner as 8th most influencing conference in Natural Language Processing, after ACL, COLING, NAACL, EMNLP, AMTA, EACL, and NLDB and above HLT, TSD, RANLP, IJCNLP and other sister conferences.

CICLing 2013 keynote speakers are Sophia Ananiadou of the University of Manchester, Walter Daelemans of the University of Antwerp, Roberto Navigli of the Sapienza University of Rome, and Michael Thelwall of the University of Wolverhampton. The conference will be held on an ancient island of Samos, birthplace of Pythagoras, Aristarchus, and Epicurus. As usually, we expect an excellent cultural program, which will include full-day tours to the ancient city of Ephesus, Samos, and nearby islands.
