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.

General Schedule:

There will be four days of technical program and three days of cultural program:

Sunday, March 24: Full-day cultural activities: tour by Samos
Monday, March 25: Keynote talk, regular talks, special event, short presentations, poster session, welcome party
Tuesday, March 26: Keynote talk, regular talks, special event
Wednesday, March 27: Full-day cultural activities: tour to Ephesus
Thursday, March 28: Keynote talk, regular talks, special event
Friday, March 29: Keynote talk, regular talks, special event, awarding and closing ceremony
Saturday, March 30: Full-day cultural activities: tour to nearby islands

If you don't have time for the cultural program, you can arrive on Monday and leave on Friday; you will miss some cultural activities.

Areas of Interest:

We are interested in whatever helps, will help eventually, or might help computers meaningfully deal with language data.

The conference is intended to encourage exchange of opinions between the scientists working in different areas of the growing field of computational linguistics and intelligent text processing. Our idea is to get a general view of the state of art in computational linguistics and its applications.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics, provided that the work is presented in computer-related or formal description aspects:

Computational linguistic theories and formalisms
Representation of linguistic knowledge
Lexical resources
Morphology, Syntax, Semantics
Discourse models
Ambiguity resolution
Anaphora resolution
Word sense disambiguation
Recognizing textual entailment
Text generation
Machine translation
Text categorization and clustering
Information retrieval
Information extraction
Text mining
Spell checking
Detection of plagiarism
Natural language interfaces

We welcome works on processing any language (not necessarily English), though major languages are of more general interest.

Important Dates:

Expression of interest (register a tentative abstract): November 30, 2012
Full text of registered papers: December 7, 2012 (contact us for late submissions)
Notification of acceptance: January 10, 2013
Camera-ready for LNCS: January 20, 2013
Registration (authors): January 20, 2013
Conference: March 24-30, 2013


Paper submission is divided in two phases:

- Before the expression of interest deadline, the authors should express their interest by registering a tentative abstract of the paper. At this stage, the full text is not required and the tentative abstract will only be used to assign reviewers for your paper. You can update abstract, title, or full text as many times as you wish while the paper submission system is open.

- By the full text deadline, the authors of papers registered at the previous step should upload the full text of the paper. No changes should be made after this date (but contact the organizers if you need to make changes).

Late submissions: While the system is open you can submit/update your paper and we will do our best to normally review it (though no guarantee). Contact us if the system is closed or if you need considerably more time to submit the full text. In this case please first register your abstract and then contact us to negotiate the date of submission of the full text.

Student Grants:

A limited number of reduced fees will be available. To apply, please contact us and thoroughly justify your application. Eligible for reduced registration are people from underdeveloped countries in case if their institutions have real difficulties paying the full fee (generally not included: North America, Western Europe, China, South Korea, Japan, but if you feel your situation is really different, try applying anyway). Authors must apply for reduced registration (clearly indicating the discount amount) before submission of their paper, and also must tick the group '[X] Discount or waiver is requested' in the web submission system. No applications will be considered for already reviewed papers. Notes:

- Though all papers are judged by strictly academic criteria, in borderline cases and between papers of comparable quality we may give preference to papers with fully paid fee.

- Though we will do our best for this not to happen, we cannot guarantee providing some material (including the proceedings) to participants with reduced fee. Also, in case of lack of seats in the excursion bus we will have to give preference to fully registered participants.

Publication: LNCS - Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science; poster session: special issue of a journal

Awards: Best paper, best student paper, best presentation, best poster, best software
