CILCC 2020: An Overview of Language Technologies and
Digital Humanities


Computational and corpus linguistics (LCC, in Spanish) has been booming and developing in our Spanish-speaking countries, particularly in Colombia. Just in the past three years two important congresses were held in Colombia: the first in the city of Bogotá in 2017, by the Caro y Cuervo Institute; and the second, in 2018, by the University of Medellin; these congresses were preceded by the First Colombian Colloquium of Computational and Corpus Linguistics held in 2016, Universidad del Valle. On these occasions we had the opportunity to meet and discuss this topic with colleagues from Latin American countries and Spain and, in addition, there was the participation of experts from the Anglophone world.

For the year 2020, we propose, in addition to the LCC, that the event also be opened to the field of Digital Humanities, since for this occasion we will have the collaboration of the University of Groningen
and its Faculty of Arts.

That is why, from the University of Antioquia and its faculties of Communications, Engineering and the School of Languages and the University of Groningen, we are very cordially inviting you to send papers that take up one or more of the following topics:

Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing

Automatic translation
Systems modeling for natural language processing
Computer assisted Language Learning
Systems for automatic corpus tagging
Systems for speech recognition and generation

Corpus Linguistics

Online Corpora for the study of human language
Constitution of oral or written corpus
Linguistic statistics from corpus

Knowledge Management and Artificial Intelligence

Knowledge management
Information extraction
Sentiment Analysis

Digital Humanities

Computer science applied to the study of historical heritage
Computer science applied to the arts and humanities
Corpus linguistics and literature
Computational linguistics and digital humanities
Digital literacies

Demonstration of computer systems, prototypes and devices for Natural Language Processing, corpus analysis and Digital Humanities
This list is not exhaustive, so we invite you to send papers that are related to any of the event's five main topics

Submission of abstracts

The proposal should be sent in summary form in Spanish or English, and should not exceed three pages (including bibliography).

In addition, we will invite you to submit a chapter for publication in
an international publishing company, which may be in Spanish or English.
An address will be made available for submitting the abstracts:
