at the Fourth Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics (Part 2)
Editors: Roberto Basili, Simonetta Montemagni
The second issue of the fourth vol. of the Journal of Computational Linguistics (IJCoL), the Italian magazine promoted by the Italian Association of Computational Linguistics (AILC – www.ai-lc.it), published a miscellaneous volume that completes the collection of Emerging Topics of the Fourth Italian Conference on Computational Linguistics (n. 4, vol. 1, 2018). Published in the first volume of the year: in particular, it collects a second set of research works with particularly promising results involved in the CLiC Conference -it 2017, held in Rome from 11 to 13 December 2017.
This set corresponds to a selection of contributions documenting the research in different areas, sometimes with interesting application effects, ranging from the study of Social Media, to stylometry and musicology, to arrive to modern approaches to lexical semantics and lexicography. The topics addressed are the basis of recent and interesting developments in computational linguistics, such as, for example, social computational science or digital humanities.
