Meeting Description:

The 28th International Conference on Computational Linguistics (COLING'2020) will take place in Barcelona from 13 to 18 September 2020. The Workshops and tutorials will be held from 13 to 14 September 2020. The main conference will be held from 15 to 18 September 2020.

2nd Call for Papers:


The 28th International Conference on Computational Linguistics (COLING) will be held in Barcelona, Spain, from 13 to 18 September 2020. We invite the submission of papers on original and unpublished research on all aspects of computational linguistics.

The first COLING was held in New York in 1965, with the last iteration in Santa Fe, USA, in 2018. Throughout its history, COLING has brought together researchers from across the field of Computational Linguistics. COLING’2020 continues this tradition and thus welcomes papers on all topics related to both natural language and computation, with the expectation that all papers will include linguistic insight.


8 April 2020 (Wednesday): Final submissions due
10 June 2020 (Wednesday): Notifications
30 June 2020 (Tuesday): Camera-ready (PDF) due
13-14 September 2020 (Sunday - Monday): Tutorials & Workshops Pre-Conference

COLING’2020 invites the submission of long and short papers on original and unpublished research covering all aspects of natural language and computation. Relevant topics for the conference include, but are not limited to, the following (in alphabetical order):

Applications (including BioNLP and eHealth, NLP for legal purposes, NLP for Social Media and Journalism, among others)
Dialogue and Interactive Systems
Discourse and Pragmatics
Document classification, topic modelling, information retrieval and crosslingual retrieval
Language Generation
Language Modelling
Information Extraction and Text Mining, and Knowledge Graph
Language Resources and Evaluation
CL/NLP and Linguistic Theories, Cognitive Modeling and Psycholinguistics
Machine Learning for CL/NLP
Multilingual processing, Machine Translation and translation aids
Morphology and Word Segmentation
Semantics (of words, sentences, ontologies and lexical semantics)
Sentiment Analysis, Opinion and Argument Mining
Speech recognition, text-to-speech and spoken language understanding
Summarization and Simplification
Tagging, Chunking, Syntax and Parsing
Textual Inference and Question Answering
Vision, Robotics, Multimodal and Grounded Language Acquisition
Papers in all these areas describing NLP engineering experiments or computationally-aided linguistic analysis as well as survey papers are welcome. In all relevant areas, we encourage authors to include a detailed description of the methodology, the analysis of the contribution of the proposal and in technologically-oriented papers, we encourage in-depth error analysis linked to linguistic information.
