Call for Papers

ACLing is a series of international conferences devoted to Arabic Computational Linguistics (CL), Intelligent Text Processing, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Human Language Technologies (HLT), Natural-Language Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), and Speech Processing(SP). The Third International Conference on Arabic Computational Linguistic (ACLing2018) will be held in Dubai in November, 2018. ACLing2018 aims to bring together leading academicians, scientists, researchers and practitioners from all over the world to exchange new ideas and the latest results in Arabic Computational Linguistics and NLP. The field has become increasingly important, as more and more Arabic information is now available through the Web, Social Media and Intranet services. We invite you to participate in ACLing2018 and we are confident that you will find the program enriching, enlightening and rewarding.

Submission and Publication              

The conference invites submissions reporting original unpublished work that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. All the accepted papers will be published in the Procedia Computer Science by ELSEVIER. Every peer-reviewed research article appearing in Procedia Computer Science will be published open access and will have a DOI assigned. Procedia Computer Science (ISSN: 1877-0509) of this series is indexed in Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature. Procedia Computer Science is ranked by SJR.

ACLing2018 invites two types of submissions which should be structured as technical papers:

  • Long papers: these manuscripts will not be exceeding 8 pages including figures, tables and references. The accepted regular papers will be published in the Procedia Computer Science by ELSEVIER which will be available online at the time of the conference.
  • Short papers: these manuscripts will not be exceeding 4 pages, including figures, tables and references, and a minimum of Three (3) pages. The accepted short papers will be published in the same Procedia Computer Science by ELSEVIER.
  • Notice that
    • A maximum of Eight (8) pages per contribution is allowed. However, it is possible to extend the paper until 4 additional pages by paying an additional extra charge per page.
    • A registered person may present several contributions, but registration fees are requested on each contribution.
    • Accompanying/participant person will be charged fixed fee.

For further instructions please follow the submission guidelines at the conference website >> CLICK HERE. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review. Submission is electronic using EasyChair,  to submit your paper >> CLICK HERE.

All manuscripts will be reviewed by at least 3 reviewers who will be either members of the Programme Committee or reviewers proposed by Programme Committee members. Each manuscript and will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees.
