4 - 6 February 2022, ICAART Special Session on "Natural Language Processing in Artificial Intelligence" (NLPinAI 2022), Online

Date: 4 - 6 February 2022
Time: 23:59
Location: Online
Deadline: Friday 26 November 2021


Natural Language Processing in Artificial Intelligence - NLPinAI 2022

Online Streaming 4-6 February, 2022

Special Session within

the 14th International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence - ICAART 2022



Computational and technological developments that incorporate natural language are proliferating. Adequate coverage encounters difficult problems related to partiality, underspecification, and context-dependency, which are signature features of information in nature and natural languages. Furthermore, agents (humans or computational systems) are information conveyors, interpreters, or participate as components of informational content. Generally, language processing depends on agents' knowledge, reasoning, perspectives, and interactions.

The session covers theoretical work, applications, approaches, and techniques for computational models of information and its presentation by language (artificial, human, or natural in other ways). The goal is to promote computational systems of intelligent natural language processing and related models of thought, mental states, reasoning, and other cognitive processes.


We invite contributions relevant to the following topics, without being limited to them:

- Type theories for applications to language and information processing

- Computational grammar

- Computational syntax

- Computational semantics of natural languages

- Computational syntax-semantics interface

- Interfaces between morphology, lexicon, syntax, semantics, speech, text, pragmatics

- Parsing

- Multilingual processing

- Large-scale grammars of natural languages

- Interfaces between morphology, lexicon, syntax, semantics, speech, text, pragmatics

- Models of computation and algorithms for natural language processing

- Computational models of partiality, underspecification, and context-dependency

- Models of situations, contexts, and agents, for applications to language processing

- Information about space and time in language models and processing

- Models of computation and algorithms for linguistics

- Data science in language processing

- Machine learning of language

- Interdisciplinary methods

- Integration of formal, computational, model theoretic, graphical, diagrammatic, statistical, and other related methods

- Logic for information extraction or expression in written and spoken language

- Language processing based on biological fundamentals of information and languages

- Computational neuroscience of language
