Applied Sciences (Impact Factor: 2.679)
Special Issue on ''Recent Developments in Creative Language Processing''
Aims and scope

The SI focuses on topics deepening the knowledge on the creative use of language. Instead of taking up basic topics from the fields of CL and NLP, such as improvement of part-of-speech tagging, we will promote research focused on such creative topics as humor processing, deceptive language processing, figurative language processing, and others for which the generally perceived state-of-the-art has not been established yet.

Target audience:
The SI is addressed at the audience comprised of scientists, researchers, scholars, students and practitioners performing research in the analysis or generation of language, with a specific weight put on studies focused on the creative use of language, and the creative methods for the processing of language. The Special Issue will not accept research on basic topics for which the field has been well established, such as improvement of part-of-speech tagging, etc., unless they directly contribute to the idea of creative processing of language phenomena.

List of Topics:
The Special Issue will invite papers on topics listed, but not limited to the following:
- natural language processing
- computational linguistics
- creative language processing
- figurative language processing
- NLP applications
- natural language generation
- emotional language processing
- humor and joke processing
- deceptive language detection
- emoticon processing
- automatic cyberbullying detection
- fake news detection
- abusive language processing
- story generation
- poetry generation
