Vol. 1, n. 1 · December 2015

Emerging Topics
at the First Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics

Editors: Roberto Basili, Alessandro Lenci, Bernardo Magnini, Simonetta Montemagni

IJCoL, the journal of the Italian Association of Computational Linguistics, is intended to meet the need for a national and international forum for the promotion and dissemination of high-level original research in the field of Computational Linguistics (CL) with particular emphasis on the Italian language (but not restricted to it). This first volume of the journal includes revised and extended versions of the best papers of the CLIC-it 2014 Conference held in December 2014 in Pisa, along two major motivations. First, the research work involved by this choice was inherently representative of the entire Italian community, with its interests, major paradigms and achievements. Second, the papers, early selected on the basis of the CLIC-en 2014 peer review, have been further evaluated, at the Conference, as candidates for the best paper award and their revised versions have undergone a second round of reviewing. For the variety of topics covered and for the general quality of the papers, the volume successfully sheds light on several interesting active research trends and contributes to their main challenges.
The papers can be grouped into four major areas: mathematical modelling of linguistic information; distributional semantics; automatic recognition of opinions and emotions in corpora and Social Networks; application of language processing methods in Digital Humanities.
