CALL FOR PAPERS

10th International Workshop on Natural Language Processing and Cognitive Science

NLPCS 2013

15-16th October 2013, Marseille, France

(17th October 2013: Tutorials, to be confirmed)

https://sites.google.com/site/nlpcs2013/

CO-CHAIRS

and Michael Zock (CNRS-LIF, Aix-Marseille université, France, michael.zock@lif.univ-mrs.fr)

SCOPE of the workshop

The aim of this workshop is to foster interactions among researchers and practitioners in Natural Language Processing (NLP) by taking a Cognitive Science perspective. Given the breadth of the topic, we welcome reports on work from many perspectives, including but not limited to computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology, language learning, artificial intelligence, etc.

Hence, topics of interest include, without being limited to:

§ Computational Models of NLP

§ Cognitive and Psychological Models of NLP

§ Emotion and Language Processing

§ Evolutionary NLP

§ Discourse Processing

§ Pragmatics and NLP

§ Social Cognition of Language

§ Embodied and Situated NLP

§ Multimodality in Speech / Text Processing

§ Text Summarisation and Information Extraction

§ Natural Language Interfaces and Dialogue Systems

§ Translation and Machine Translation

§ Multi-Lingual Processing

§ Speech Processing

§ Tools and Resources in NLP

§ Corpus Linguistics

§ Text mining

§ Ontologies

These topics can be addressed from any of the following perspectives: full automation by machines for machine (traditional NLP or Human Language Technology), semi-automated processing, i.e. machine-mediated processing (programs assisting people in their tasks), simulation of human cognitive process.

IMPORTANT DATES

Paper Submission: 15 June 2013

Authors' Notification: 31 July 2013
