CLiC-it, Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics, aims to establish a reference forum for research on Computational Linguistics of the Italian community. CLiC-it covers all aspects of automatic language understanding, both written and spoken, and targets state-of-art theoretical results, experimental methodologies, technologies, as well as application perspectives, which may contribute to advance the field.

The second edition of CLiC-it will be held in Trento, at Fondazione Bruno Kessler.

The spirit of the Conference is inclusive. In the conviction that the complexity of language phenomena needs cross-disciplinary competences, CLiC-it intends to bring together researchers of related disciplines such as Computational LinguisticsLinguisticsCognitive ScienceMachine LearningComputer ScienceKnowledge RepresentationInformation Retrieval and Digital Humanities.

CLiC-it is open to contributions on all languages, with a particular emphasis on Italian.
