13 - 17 December 2021, Logic and Algorithms in Computational Linguistics 2021 (LACompLing2021), Montpellier, France and Online

Date: 13 - 17 December 2021
Time: 08:00-21:00
Location: Montpellier, France and Online
Target audience: researchers, academic people
Costs: 20 Euro
Deadline: Sunday 14 November 2021

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 1950s, 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 symposium 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 symposium 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.

LACompLing2021 is part of the week "Mathematical Linguistics (MALIN) 2021"

We welcome submissions of abstracts of presentations of original work. The intended papers should not be submitted concurrently to another conference or conference event and should not have been published or submitted for publication consideration elsewhere. Authors can submit more than one abstract. Invited speakers can submit invited and contributed abstracts.
