15-16 December 2011, COCONAT: Computing Natural Reasoning, Tilburg, The Netherlands

Date: 15-16 December 2011
Location: Tilburg, The Netherlands
Deadline: 1 November 2011

Logic was originally meant to systematize and analyze arguments in natural language. But in the 20th century the main developments in logic focused on mathematics and its foundations. Recently, a number of researchers have focused on logical systems tuned to natural language semantics to reconnect with the older tradition. The logical and conceptual underpinnings of some of these systems remains unclear, although some recent work has begun to address formal foundations.

The aim of this conference is to contribute to this direction in semantics and to discuss logics, especially proof systems, well-suited for natural language semantics and to explore comparisons between these systems. We also welcome input from the psychology of reasoning and are interested in computer implementations of natural reasoning systems.

We solicit talks on relevant topics. There will also be poster sessions, preceded by plenary 'flash' presentations of posters. Talk/poster submission deadline: November 1, 2011
