5 - 9 August 2019, ESSLLI 2019 Workshop on Semantic Spaces at the Intersection of NLP, Physics, and Cognitive Sciences, Riga, Latvia

Date: 5 - 9 August 2019
Location: Riga, Latvia
Deadline: Friday 17 May 2019

Vector embeddings of word meanings have become a mainstream tool in large scale natural language processing tools. The use of vectors to represent meanings in semantic spaces or feature spaces is also employed in cognitive science. Unrelated to natural language and cognitive science, vectors and vector spaces have been extensively used as models of physical theories and especially the theory of quantum mechanics.

Exploiting the common ground provided by vector spaces, the proposed workshop will bring together researchers working at the intersection of NLP, cognitive science, and physics, offering to them an appropriate forum for presenting their uniquely motivated work and ideas.

We invite original contributions (up to 12 pages) of previously unpublished work. Submission of substantial, albeit partial results of work in progress is welcomed.

We also invite extended abstracts (3 pages) of previously published work that is recent and relevant to the workshop. These should include a link to a separately published paper or preprint.
