14 - 15 October 2020, Conference on Probability and Meaning (PaM 2020), Virtual

Date: 14 - 15 October 2020
Location: Virtual
Deadline: Monday 17 February 2020

Probability and Meaning (PaM) is a conference organized by the Centre for Linguistic Theory and Studies in Probability (CLASP).  PaM will bring together researchers interested in computationally relevant probabilistic approaches to natural language meaning. PaM will include symbolic, machine learning and experimental approaches to this task, as well as hybrid models.

After careful consideration of the pandemic situation, the conference is moving online. The registration for PaM2020 is now open and free.

We welcome all probabilistic approaches, developed within a computational framework, to the semantics of natural language for written, spoken, or multimodal communication. Papers are invited on topics in these and closely related areas.

PaM will feature three types of submissions: long papers, student papers, and short papers. All types of papers should be submitted not later than 12th February, 2020. Long papers describe original research, and they must not exceed 8 pages excluding references. Student papers describe original research, and the first author must be a student, or at least 2/3 of the work on a paper should be done by students. Student papers must not exceed 6 pages excluding references. Reviewers will give special support to student authors through mentoring. Short papers present work in progress, or they describe systems and/or projects. They must not exceed 4 pages excluding references.
