Meeting Description:

CLIC-it 2014 - First Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics
9-10 December 2014, Pisa, Italy

Co-located with EVALITA 2014 (http://www.evalita.org) and AI*IA 2014 (http://aiia2014.di.unipi.it)

CLIC-it, Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics, is a new event aiming to establish a reference forum for research on computational linguistics of the Italian community. CLIC-it covers all aspects of automatic language understanding, both written and spoken, and targets state-of-art theoretical results, experimental methodologies, technologies, as well as application perspectives, which may contribute to advance the field.

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.

The first edition of CLIC-it, CLIC-it 2014, will be held in Pisa on December 9-10 2014, and it will be co-located with EVALITA-2014 (http://www.evalita.org), the fourth edition of the evaluation campaign of Natural Language Processing and Speech tools for Italian. CLIC-it will provide additional opportunities to discuss research aspects related with EVALITA, as well as new tasks and new evaluation methodologies.

Conference Venue:

Pisa, Italy, University & CNR

Submission Information:

CLIC-it 2014 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 online and will be presented at the conference either orally or as a poster. The deadline for paper submissions is July 15, 2014.

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 are available on the conference website under 'Submissions'.
