28 - 31 August 2018, Symposium Logic and Algorithms in Computational Linguistics 2018 (LACompLing2018), Stockholm, Sweden

Date: 28 - 31 August 2018
Location: Stockholm, Sweden
Costs: Roussanka Loukanova, Kristina Liefke
Deadline: Tuesday 15 May 2018

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, logic, and many areas of mathematics - 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 logic, mathematics, and computer science in present day computational linguistics. It intends to be a forum for presenting new results as well as work in progress.

The workshop focuses mainly on logical approaches to computational processing of natural language, and on the applicability of methods and techniques from the study of artificial languages (programming/logic) in computational linguistics. We invite participation and submissions from other relevant approaches too, especially if they can inspire new work and approaches.

We invite original, regular papers (maximum 10 pages, including figures and references) that are not submitted concurrently to another conference or for publication elsewhere. Abstracts of presentations (max 2 pages) can be on work submitted or published elsewhere.
