Meeting Description:

The Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics, CLiC-it, aims at establishing a reference forum for the Italian community of researchers working in the fields of Computational Linguistics (CL) and Natural Language Processing (NLP). CLiC-it promotes and disseminates original research on all aspects of automatic language processing, both written and spoken, and targets state-of-the-art theoretical results, experimental methodologies, technologies, as well as application perspectives, which may contribute to the advancement of the CL and NLP fields.

The spirit of the conference is multi- and inter-disciplinary. Considering that the complexity of language phenomena needs cross-disciplinary competences, CLiC-it intends to bring together researchers of related disciplines such as Computational Linguistics, Natural Language Processing, Linguistics, Cognitive Science, Machine Learning, Computer Science, Knowledge Representation, Information Retrieval, and Digital Humanities. CLiC-it is open to contributions on all languages, with a particular emphasis on Italian.
CLiC-it is an initiative of the Italian Association of Computational Linguistics (AILC —

Call for Papers:

The conference invites the submission of papers on all aspects of automated language processing. Relevant topics for the conference include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
- Information Extraction, Information Retrieval and Question Answering
- CL and NLP for the Humanities
- Computational Social Science and Social Media
- Dialogue, Discourse and Natural Language Generation
- Ethics and NLP
- Language Resources and Evaluation
- Spoken Language Processing and Automatic Speech Understanding
- Linguistic Issues in CL and NLP
- Cognitive Modeling and Psycholinguistics
- Machine Learning for NLP
- Machine Translation and Multilingualism
- Morphology and Syntax Processing
- Pragmatics and Creativity
- Research and Industrial NLP Applications
- Semantics, Knowledge Representation
- Vision, Robotics, Multimodal and Grounding

CLiC-it 2021 has the goal of a broad technical program. We invite papers in theoretical computational linguistics, empirical/data-driven approaches, resources and their evaluation, as well as NLP applications and tools. We also invite papers describing a challenge in the field, position papers, survey papers, and papers that describe a negative result.

Submission Format:
Papers may consist of up to five (5) pages of content plus unlimited references. Papers can be either in English or Italian, with the abstract both in English and Italian. Each paper will be reviewed by three independent reviewers. Accepted papers will be published on-line and will be presented at the conference either orally or as a poster. For research communications (see below) an abstract of two (2) pages is required.

Submissions must follow the ACL two-column format. We strongly recommend the use of LaTeX style files or Microsoft Word style files according to the ACL format, which will be available on the conference website under “Information for Authors”. Submission must be electronic in PDF, using the Easychair submission software.

Reviewing is single blind, so there is no need to remove author information from manuscripts at submission time.
