6 - 10 August 2018, ESSLLI Workshop on Ambiguity: Perspectives on Representation & Resolution (ARR), Sofia, Bulgaria

Date: 6 - 10 August 2018
Location: Sofia, Bulgaria
Deadline: Monday 2 April 2018

There are various approaches to ambiguity from a wide variety of perspectives. This is due to the fact that ambiguity exists and arises on many different levels of natural language. We want to bring together scholars working on different aspects of ambiguity, in particular to approach the following questions:
1. What is the core of this phenomenon?
2. What is the common ground in approaching the phenomenon?
3. What can be gained by combining different approaches?

Our special focus is thus on bringing together approaches seeing ambiguity as a mere computational problem and approaches seeing it as a linguistic phenomenon with some interest in itself.

The conference invites extended abstracts of 2 pages (excluding references) related to the workshop themes. Extended abstracts should lay out original, unpublished research and/or implementation results. We would like to encourage a variety of submissions relating to any dimension of ambiguity. Depending on number and quality of submissions, and interest of authors, we plan to edit a special issue of worked out papers of contributions to the workshop.
