IJCoL · Italian Journal
of Computational Linguistics

Vol. 5, n. 2 · December 2019

The second volume of the fifth year of the Italian Journal of Computational Linguistics (IJCoL) integrates original research results as well as papers that have been presented at CLiC-it 2019 held in Bari, in November 2019. All contributions are subjected to  a peer-review process, which can be considered a second round of review in the case of those articles awarded as “Best Young Paper” and “Distinguished Young Paper” at the conference. The volume closes with a contribution dedicated to the memory of Emanuele Pianta, a researcher who significantly contributed to the growth of Computational Linguistics in Italy and died prematurely in 2012.

The major themes discussed by the papers are hot topics that include complex learning methods for the analysis of Social Media texts, neural algorithms for integrated audio, visual and language learning. Some works are on NLP resources developed for the Italian language.
