16 - 19 August 2017, Workshop on Logic and Algorithms in Computational Linguistics 2017 (LACompLing2017), Stockholm, Sweden

Date: 16 - 19 August 2017
Location: Stockholm, Sweden
Deadline: Friday 14 April 2017

Computational linguistics studies natural language in its various manifestations from a computational point of view, both on the theoretical level (modeling grammar modules dealing with natural language form and meaning, and the relation between these two) and on the practical level (developing applications for language and speech technology). Right from the start in the 1950ties, there have been strong links with computer science and logic - one can think of Chomsky's contributions to the theory of formal languages and automata, or Lambek's logical modeling of natural language syntax. The workshop assesses the place of computer science logic in present day computational linguistics.

The workshop focuses on logical approaches to the computational processing of natural language, and on the applicability of methods and techniques from the study of artificial languages (programming/logic) in computational linguistics. . It intends to be a forum for presenting new results as well as work in progress. LACompLing 2017 is affiliated with the 26th Annual EACSL Conference on Computer Science Logic CSL'2017, and co-located with: Logic in Stockholm 2017.

We invite original papers that are not submitted concurrently to another conference or for publication elsewhere.
