20-22 August 2014, Fourth Workshop on Controlled Natural Language (CNL 2014), Galway, Ireland

Date: 20-22 August 2014
Location: Galway, Ireland
Deadline: 14 March 2014

This workshop on controlled natural language (CNL) has a broad scope and embraces all approaches that are based on natural language and apply restrictions on vocabulary, grammar, and/or semantics. This includes (but is certainly not limited to) approaches that have been called simplified language, plain language, formalized language, processable language, fragments of language, phraseologies, conceptual authoring, language generation, and guided natural language interfaces.

Some CNLs are designed to improve communication among humans, especially for non-native speakers of the respective natural language. In other cases, the restrictions on the language are supposed to make it easier for computers to analyze such texts in order to improve computer-aided, semi-automatic, or automatic translations into other languages. A third group of CNL has the goal to enable reliable automated reasoning and formal knowledge representation from seemingly natural texts. All these types of CNL are covered by this workshop.

We invite researchers to submit papers with novel contributions in the area of CNL. These research papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS format and should not exceed 10 pages. Submission deadline: 14 March 2014.
