Call For Papers

The Second Edition of the Conference on Computational Linguistics in Bulgaria (CLIB-2016) (, to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, on September 9, 2016, covers a broad spectrum of areas related to natural language processing and computational linguistics, with a special focus on Bulgarian.
CLIB-2016 is organised by the Department of Computational Linguistics at the Institute for Bulgarian Language.

This year, our invited speaker will be:
Dr. Preslav Nakov, Qatar Computing Research Institute:
Exposing Paid Opinion Manipulation Trolls in News Community Forums

We are pleased to announce that the Second conference edition will be supported by A Data Pro (, who have kindly agreed to be a Golden Sponsor to CLIB 2016. A Data Pro is a global company providing various information analyses, editorial and data management services. The company was named best enterprise in innovative management for 2015.
Conference attendees will have the opportunity to see a demo of the company's products and to meet company representatives.

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. 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.
