Meeting Description:

CLIB is an international conference that aims to foster the NLP community in Bulgaria and to 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.
Organisers: The Department of Computational Linguistics at the Institute for Bulgarian Language and the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS).

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 2020 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.

A special session on wordnets and ontologies is envisaged.

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.

Submission and reviewing will be managed online by the EasyChair conference management system through the CLIB 2020 login page (
Submission deadline is 15 March 2020.
