*Paper submission deadline:  September 11th, 2023 September 18th, 2023*
Notification of paper acceptance: October 5th, 2023
Camera-ready version deadline: October 19th, 2023
Workshop (at AIxIA 2023): November 6th - 9th, 2023



The goal of the NL4AI workshop is to explore the role of Computational 
Linguistics and Natural Language Processing in Artificial Intelligence 
applications. We believe that new technological challenges and 
opportunities rise at the boundary between NLP and AI. On the one hand, 
AI applications benefit from a deeper understanding of problems related 
to Natural Language, and thus the integration of advanced NLP 
techniques. On the other hand, NLP benefits greatly from being used in 
wider areas of AI where problems and methodologies related to NL can be 
evaluated in new contexts.



We invite papers that pertain to the workshop theme including, but not 
limited, to:

  * NLP and AI Applications (health, legal domain, social media and
    journalism, etc.)
  * Natural Language Interfaces for Human Robot Interaction
  * Resources and Evaluation
  * Discourse and Pragmatics
  * Natural Language Generation
  * Information extraction in AI applications
  * Machine Learning for NLP
  * Sentiment analysis and Opinion mining
  * Natural Language Inference
  * NLP and Industrial Challenges
  * Semantics
  * Conversational Agents in Human-Computer Interaction
  * Cognitive modeling and psycholinguistics
  * Language and other Multimodality
  * Speech and Spoken language processing
  * Ethics and NLP
  * Interpretability, Explainability and Analysis of Models for NLP
  * Abusive Language Detection and Analysis
  * Machine Translation and Multilinguality
  * Question Answering
  * Summarization
  * NLP for Fact Checking, Fake News Detection and Analysis
  * LLMs and Applications
  * Multimodal (text-image) data sources

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings via CEUR 
Workshop Proceedings. Depending on the number and quality of papers 
received, we will consider proposing a special issue in relevant 
journals. The Program Committee will select the Best Workshop Paper from 
the accepted papers.


We encourage submissions that describe new theoretical models, applied 
techniques, and research in progress. Substantial extensions to works 
already published or presented in other locations are also welcomed.
We will invite two kinds of submissions, which address novel interface 
issues in recommender systems by following the new 2022 CEUR-ART – 1 
Column papers style (http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-XXX/CEURART.zip 
Short/Demo papers: The maximum length is 6 pages (plus up to 2 pages of 
Long papers: The maximum length is 12 pages (plus up to 2 pages of 

Please note that papers with less than 25000 characters will be 
considered short papers in the CEUR proceedings. Submissions will be 
peer-reviewed (single-blind) by the program committee members. 
Evaluation criteria will include novelty, significance for 
theory/practice, technical soundness, and quality of presentation. All 
the submissions should be submitted via EasyChair at: 


Elisa Bassignana, IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Dominique Brunato, Institute for Computational Linguistics “A. Zampolli” 
(CNR-ILC), Italy
Marco Polignano, University of Bari Aldo Moro, Italy
Alan Ramponi, Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Italy
