7 - 8 July 2018, Fifth Workshop on Natural Language and Computer Science (NLCS 2018), Oxford, England
Formal tools coming from logic and category theory are important in both natural language semantics and in computational semantics. Moreover, work on these tools borrows heavily from all areas of theoretical computer science. In the other direction, applications having to do with natural language has inspired developments on the formal side. The workshop, affiliated with Federated Logic Conference (FLoC) 2018, invites papers on both topics. Invited speaker: Ann Copestake, University of Cambridge.
Specific topics includes, but are not limited to: logic for semantics of lexical items, sentences, discourse and dialog, continuations in natural language semantics, formal tools in textual inference, such as logics for natural language inference, applications of category theory in semantics, linear logic in semantics, formal approaches to unifying data-driven and declarative approaches to semantics.
