The 36th Conference
on Computational Linguistics and Speech Processing
(ROCLING 2024)

November 4th-5th, Academia Sinica, Taipei City, Taiwan

About the Conference

The 36th Conference on Computational Linguistics and Speech Processing (ROCLING 2024) is the annual conference of the Association for Computational Linguistics and Chinese Language Processing (ACLCLP). It is a renowned international conference in the fields of natural language processing and speech processing, held annually. With a long history of thirty-five sessions, its research themes encompass various issues and related applications in natural language and speech signal processing. This year's conference will be hosted by Academia Sinica. The conference will feature keynote speeches by invited experts and scholars, as well as contributions from academia and industry, which will undergo a rigorous peer review process. High-quality papers will be presented, and there will also be a presentation of research project results funded by the National Science Council. In recent years, large language models (LLMs) have realized the capabilities of fluent dialogue, responsive interactions, and question comprehension in artificial intelligence, garnering widespread public interest and attention in the development of natural language and speech processing. This year's ROCLING conference anticipates that experts, scholars, and technical personnel interested in natural language and speech will explore the depth and breadth of research and applications in computational linguistics.

Call for Papers

ROCLING 2024 invites paper submissions reporting original research results and system development experiences as well as real-world applications. Each submission will be reviewed based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and relevance to the conference. Accepted papers will be presented orally or as poster presentations. Both oral and poster presentations will be published in the ROCLING 2024 conference proceedings and included in the ACL Anthology. A number of papers will be selected and invited for extension into journal versions and publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Computational Linguistics and Chinese Language Processing (IJCLCLP).

Page Limitation

Papers can be written and presented in either Chinese or English. Papers should be made in PDF format and submitted online through the paper submission system. Submitted papers may consist of 4-8 pages of content, plus unlimited references. Upon acceptance, final versions will be given additional pages of content (up to 9 pages) so that reviewers’ comments can be taken into account.
