Call For Papers

The 19th edition of the

International Conference on Linguistic Resources and Tools for Natural Language Processing


that will take place between November 14-16, 2024 in Alba-Iulia, Romania, and online

We expect papers presenting original and unpublished research, descriptions of accomplished or in-progress work in all areas of natural language processing, digital humanities, creation of resources and instruments to process language in both textual and spoken form. We call for contributions that range from theoretical, empirical and applied linguistics to computational models of language, research describing morphological, syntactic, semantic and discourse structures, pragmatic usage, multi-word expressions, the formation and evolution of languages, technologies to decipher and interpret old variants of languages, etc. The studies can be related to any language, but we encourage research evidencing specific aspects of the Romanian language or of any of its dialects and idioms. Case studies, demos of applications and review papers are also most welcome.

The conference is addressed to computer scientists and linguists, from PhD students to senior researchers, working on all areas of language modelling and processing, including lexicographers and creators of any forms of digital resources. We expect all range of approaches, from theoretical to symbolic, statistical and neural. Contributions may also describe new linguistic resources, such as speech and text corpora, bi- and multi-modal corpora, dictionaries in electronic form, treebanks, language models, pre-trained deep learning models transferable to other areas, vectorial models, collections of annotated documents, etc.

As in the previous editions, the Proceedings of the Conference will be sent for indexing to Clarivate Analytics.

The organisers of the event are: “1 Decembrie 1918” University of Alba-Iulia, University “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” of Iași with the Faculty of Computer Science, Romanian Academy with its research institutes in Iași (Computer Science and Philology) and Bucharest (Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence ”Mihai Drăgănescu”), the Romanian Association of Computational Linguistics and the Academy of Technical Sciences of Romania.
