CICLing 2017

April 18, 2017, 11:11 a.m.

CERTH (Centre for Research and Technology Hellas) is taking part to the 18th International Conference on Computational Lingusitics and Intelligent Text Processing (CICLing 2017) in Budapest. 

The conference is intended to encourage exchange of opinions between the scientists working in different areas of the growing field of computational linguistics and intelligent text and speech processing, in order to get a general view of the state of art in computational linguistics and its applications.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following topics.

Computational linguistics research:

  • Computational linguistic theories and formalisms
  • Representation of linguistic knowledge
  • Lexical resources
  • Morphology, syntax, semantics
  • Discourse models
  • Ambiguity resolution
  • Anaphora resolution
  • Word sense disambiguation
  • Recognizing textual entailment
  • Text generation
  • Machine translation

Intelligent text and speech processing and their applications:

  • Opinion mining, sentiment analysis, social networks
  • Speech processing and text-to-speech
  • Text categorization and clustering
  • Information retrieval, information extraction
  • Text mining
  • Summarization
  • Spell checking
  • Detection of plagiarism
  • Natural language interfaces

CICLing 2017 is hosted by the Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics, Budapest, Hungary, and organized by the CICLing 2017 Organizing Committee in conjunction with the Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics, the Natural Language and Text Processing Laboratory of the CIC, IPN, and the Mexican Society of Artificial Intelligence (SMIA).

Our partner CERTH is going to present the following interesting paper: Th. Mavropoulos, D. Liparas, S. Symeonidis, S. Vrochidis and I. Kompatsiaris, "A Hybrid Approach for Biomedical Relation Extraction Using Finite State Automata and Random Forest-Weighted Fusion" . Awards will be also given during the event and more information will be shared on our social media (Twitter and Facebook)

Keynote speakers are going to give formal talks about the following issues. 

  • From Computational Linguistics to Computers that Talk: What's Missing?
  • Between Complex Expert Problems and Simple Crowd-based Solutions: Empirical Approaches to Quality in Computational Argumentation
  • A Holistic Approach on Assessing What is in one's Words
  • A Tale of Two Topologies: One-Word-One-Vector Embeddings or One-Sense-One-Vector Embeddings?

They can be considered as inspiring discussions about the innovative communication technologies affecting our daily life. We are glad to take part to this event contributing with ideas and our research!
