We are pleased to announce the Fifth International Conference on Computational Linguistics in Bulgaria and the Call for Papers for this issue.

CLIB is an international conference that aims at exploring novel approaches and methods in computational linguistics and natural language processing (NLP) especially with a view to their application to small and less-resourced languages such as Bulgarian, and the bridging of the discrepancies between big and small languages with respect to language technologies. The Conference is dedicated to fostering the NLP community and furthering the cooperation between Bulgarian and foreign researchers and teams around the world through sharing high-quality scientific results in all areas of computational linguistics and NLP.

The Fifth CLIB Conference will be held 8 – 9 September 2022 in Sofia, Bulgaria.

A special session dedicated to wordnets, framenets and ontologies will be held at CLIB 2022. This will be its third edition after a successful start of a special session on wordnets and ontologies at CLIB 2018. The Special Session brings together researchers interested in the principles, theory, practice and applications of wordnets, framenets and ontologies, related linguistic resources and their interoperability and seeks to establish a dedicated community and to foster joint initiatives in this particular field.

CLIB 2022 is organised by the team of the Department of Computational Linguistics at the Institute for Bulgarian Language and the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS).
