  • 6 - 8 December 2017, 2nd Amsterdam SMART Cognitive Science Conference: 'SMART Animals', Amsterdam, the Netherlands

    Date: 6 - 8 December 2017
    Location: Amsterdam, the Netherlands

    We are happy to announce the second Amsterdam SMART Cognitive Science Conference on the theme of ‘SMART Animals’. The conference will take place in Amsterdam, from December 6th-8th. The conference will consist of three plenary evening lectures and debates, and three successive workshops devoted to the topics of animal cognition in the broad sense (i.e., including humans).

    The conference is free of charge. Due to space limitations, however, you will need to formally register to be allowed in the workshop or lecture rooms. We therefore encourage you to register as soon as possible. The deadline for registration is November 15th. You can find the link to the registration form here.

    For more information, see here or at smartcs.uva.nl/conference-2017 or contact SMART Cognitive Science at .
  • (New) 6 December 2017, Workshop:Grammars, Computation and Cognition. A workshop honouring the scientific legacy of Remko Scha

    Date & Time: Wednesday 6 December 2017, 09:00-16:00
    Location: Oost-Indisch Huis, Kloveniersburgwal 48, Amsterdam
    Costs: Free
    Deadline: Friday 1 December 2017

    The field of computational linguistics has made much progress in developing models of syntactic and semantic parsing. With current models we can compute with great accuracy and speed the constituency and dependency structure of sentences, predict semantic roles and sentiment, or derive representations that allow us to retrieve and infer facts, summarize text and translate into other languages. However, do these technological advances also yield a better understanding of how language is learned and processed by humans? In this workshop we discuss recent developments in using parsing models for analyzing empirical data from psycholinguistics and brain imaging, developments in rich parsing models that do justice to intricate structural properties of natural languages and unsolved challenges from these domains.

  • 6 December 2017, Amsterdam Metaphysics Seminar, Elbert Booij

    Speaker: Elbert Booij
    Title: The Necessity of Objects
    Date & Time: Wednesday 6 December 2017, 14:00-16:00

  • (New) 7 December 2017, Workshop Grammars Everywhere: language, music, art, perception & the legacy of Remko Scha

    Location: Muziekzaal, Crea, Nieuwe Achtergracht 170, Amsterdam
    Costs: Free
    Deadline: Friday 1 December 2017

    Remko Scha (1945-2015) was professor of computational linguistics at the UvA’s Institute for Logic, Language and Computation. During his career, he made significant scientific and artistic contributions to areas as diverse as question answering, discourse analysis, the semantics of plurals, Data-Oriented Parsing, aleatoric music, algorithmic art, and theories and models of visual perception and creativity. In this workshop we celebrate these contributions with talks on current developments in many of the areas he was interested in.
