General information

"Dialogue" is an international conference on computational linguistics with a 40-years history. Today it is de facto the world’s leading international forum on problems and methods of computational analysis of the Russian language in a typological perspective. The Dialogue community (regular authors, reviewers) includes more than 200 researchers working around the world, united by the idea of interaction between theoretical linguistics and applied technologies, in particular - Deep Learning.

Aims and objectives

Dialog offers for discussion a wide range of problems and practical tasks of computational linguistics all the way from linguistic research to technological solutions in the final product. Papers in the following areas are invited to the conference.

The main topics of the conference

  • Intelligent Document Processing: classification, Name Entity & Relation Extraction, sammarization, generation, sentiment analysis, Argumentation Mining, Propaganda & Fake News Detection, etc., multimodal approaches to language analysis (at the junction of NLP and Computer Vision)
  • Deep learning in computational linguistics: application methods, meaningful linguistic interpretation
  • Computational Linguistic Resources: new datasets and new scenarios and markup types, Evaluation Benchmarks
  • Computer Analysis of Social Media
  • Corpus linguistics and corpus geometry: methods of creating, using and evaluating corpora and datasets
  • Computer semantics: from analytical to distribution models
  • Linguistic ontologies and automatic knowledge extraction
  • Multi-channel communication: analytical and neural models of the speech act
  • Linguistic communication models and dialog agents
  • Linguistic analysis of the text: morphology, syntax, semantics (analysis models)
  • Computer lexicography
  • Field computational linguistics: methods of creating and transferring language models for low-resource languages

 Components of the conference

The conference program includes plenary sessions, special and poster sessions, round tables, demonstrations of software systems, workshops. 

Dialogue Evaluation. As usual, within the framework of the "Dialogue", the results of the shared tasks conducted will be summed up and the conditions for new ones will be discussed.

Features of the publication of papers

The papers accepted for submission based on the results of the peer-to-peer reviewing are published in the materials of the conference (RSCI). 

About 70 papers selected by reviewers are published in the yearbook "Computational Linguistics and Intelligent Technologies" (SCOPUS).
