Scope and Motivation

There is quite a large community working on Turkish language and other Turkic languages. It will be very beneficial if this community can be gathered and have opportunity to communicate on collaboration, optimization of efforts, experience and knowledge sharing. The conference aims to be a forum for serving Turkish studies, and studies on other Turkic languages, and to draw together practitioners of Turkish language and other Turkic languages to discuss common long-term goals, promote knowledge and resource sharing and possible collaborations between the communities. We hope that that this will give birth to a series of conferences under this name.

TurCLing 2016 has the goal of a broad technical program. Thus, TurCLing 2016 invites papers in the following categories:

focused on any of the Turkic languages.

Keynote Speaker

Prof. Dr. Tunga Güngör, Bogazici University

Topics of Interest

Participants are invited to submit regular and work-in-progress research, discussion papers and industrial experience reports devoted to any Turkic language:

and all other Turkic languages, in fields related but not limited to the following topics:

Participants are also invited to submit demo papers on any of the above topics, related to Turkic Computational Linguistic Studies. Demo papers provide an opportunity to demonstrate individual technological advancements, to promote applied research and application findings and to stimulate discussions and collaborations between industry and academia. Demo papers should describe clearly what will be demonstrated, along with the background and application field of the proposed demo, the underlying technology and its novelty upon state of the art. Upon acceptance, the organizers need to be contacted early on to arrange potential special requirements for demonstration.

Submission Guidelines

We seek technical research papers that represent original and unpublished work, not currently under review for another venue. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop. Submitted papers must be written in English.

Our review procedure is double blind. The papers submitted for review must not contain the authors' names, affiliations, or any information that may disclose the authors' identity (this information is to be restored in the camera-ready version upon acceptance).

You can submit your paper either exclusively for TurCLing 2016 or jointly for TurCLing 2016 and CICLing 2016. In the latter case, if your paper is accepted for both conferences, then you will choose which one you prefer; or you paper may happen to be accepted for only one of the two conferences. We recommend this way of submission because this way the paper has more chances to be accepted to at least one of the two conferences.

Joint submissions: For papers to be submitted jointly, please use the CICLing 2016 submission system and guidelines. Joint submissions with CICLing should to Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format LNCS Authors Instructions (12 pages); see CICLing's call for papers.

TurCLing-only submissions: Please submit via CICLing submission system instead as described above; among topics there please choose "TurCLing" (plus other topics as fit). If you do not want your paper to be considered for CICLing, please send email to CICLing chair saying that you submit only for TurCLing.

The length is up to 6 pages (including the bibliography) in IEEE 2-column format (this roughly corresponds to 12 pages in the LNCS format), with an abstract of no more than 200 words. Submissions should preferably conform to the IEEE 2-column format (6 pages).


Proceedings of the conference will be submitted for possible publication by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS). In case of acceptance, the content will be submitted to Xplore and CSDL. Content will be also submitted to the indexing companies for possible indexing.


For submission jointly with CICLing 2016, please see the dates and guidelines there. For submitting exclusively to TurCLing 2016 (not to be considered for CICLing 2016), the dates are as follows:

Presentation Requirement

All accepted papers must be presented at the workshop to appear in the proceeding. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for TurCLing 2016 by the early registration deadline.
