Meeting Description:

CLIB is an international conference that aims to foster the NLP community in Bulgaria and further the cooperation with Bulgarian researchers working in NLP around the world through establishing a forum for sharing high-quality scientific work in all areas of computational linguistics and NLP.

The Second Conference on Computational Linguistics in Bulgaria (CLIB-2016) will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, on September 9, 2016. It is organised by the team of the Department of Computational Linguistics at the Institute for Bulgarian Language.

Call for Papers:

CLIB covers a broad spectrum of areas related to natural language processing, with a special focus on Bulgarian.

Topics of Interest

CLIB 2016 invites contributions on original research, including, but not limited to the following topics:

- Semantics, syntax, grammar and the lexicon
- Cognitive, mathematical and computational models of language processing
- Lexical semantics and ontologies
- Linguistic annotation - POS tagging, syntactic and semantic parsing, etc.
- Word sense disambiguation
- MWE recognition
- Information extraction
- Text analysis and summarisation
- NLP methods and applications
- Corpus linguistics
- Multilingual processing and applications, machine translation and translation aids

Papers describing research in theoretical computational linguistics are also solicited. At the same time, we encourage all authors to include analysis of the impact of theories on technologies, and/or contributions of technologies to the advancement of theory, where appropriate. In-depth analysis and discussion of errors made in the experiments described and the influence of linguistically-motivated features on the performance of the methods and/or models applied will receive additional credit toward the overall evaluation score.

There will be two categories of research papers: oral and poster presentations. The maximum submission length is 8 pages (A4) of content, plus two extra pages for references. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings.

Papers shall be submitted in English.

Reviewing will be double blind. Each submission will be reviewed by at least two anonymous reviewers.

Paper submission deadline is 31 May 2016.
