16 - 18 January 2018, Special Session on Natural Language Processing in Artificial Intelligence (NLPinAI 2018) at ICAART 2018, Funchal, Madeira - Portugal
Computational and technological developments that incorporate natural language are proliferating. Adequate coverage encounters difficult problems related to partiality, underspecification, and context-dependency, which are signature features of information in nature and natural languages. Furthermore, agents (humans or computational systems) are information conveyors, interpreters, or participate as components of informational content. Generally, language processing depends on agents' knowledge, reasoning, perspectives, and interactions.
The session covers theoretical work, advanced applications, approaches, and techniques for computational models of information and its presentation by language (artificial, human, or natural in other ways). The goal is to promote intelligent natural language processing and related models of thought, mental states, reasoning, and other cognitive processes.
We invite contributions relevant to any of the session topics. Authors can submit their work in the form of a Regular Paper, representing completed and validated research, or as a Position Paper, for preliminary work in progress.
