5-9 August 2013, Workshop on Bayesian Natural Language Semantics and Pragmatics, Duesseldorf, Germany

Date: 5-9 August 2013
Location: Duesseldorf, Germany
Deadline: 15 April 2013

The workshop wants to collect emerging work in Bayesian interpretation, as well as work using Bayesian methods in natural language (NL) interpretation, and bring together the various approaches so as to contribute to a more integrated research programme in this new area.

The workshop is part of ESSLLI-2013 and is open to all ESSLLI participants. It will consist of five 90-minute sessions held over five consecutive days in the first week of ESSLLI. There will be 2-3 slots for paper presentation and discussion per session. On the first day the workshop organisers will give an introduction to the topic.

For more information, see http://www.bnlsp.ws/.

Authors are invited to submit an anonymous, extended abstract. What we are looking for are analyses in semantics and pragmatics using the possibilities of Bayesian interpretation, and papers exploring the consequences of Bayesian NL interpretation. Submission Deadline: April 15, 2013.
