19-20 July 2015, Conference on Computing Natural Reasoning (CoCoNat 2015), Bloomington IN, U.S.A.

Date: 19-20 July 2015
Location: Bloomington IN, U.S.A.
Deadline: 15 April 2015

Logic was originally meant to systematize and analyze arguments in natural language. But in the 20th century the main developments in logic focused on mathematics and its foundations. Recently, a number of researchers have focused on logical systems tuned to natural language semantics to reconnect with the older tradition. The logical and conceptual underpinnings of some of these systems remains unclear, although some recent work has begun to address formal foundations.

The aim of this conference is to contribute to this direction in semantics and to discuss logics, especially proof systems, well-suited for natural language semantics and to explore comparisons between these systems. We also welcome input from people invoved in computational semantics, psychology of reasoning, and computer implementations of natural reasoning systems.

We solicit talks on relevant topics. There will also be poster sessions, preceded by plenary 'flash' presentations of posters. The deadline for submissions of papers is April 15, 2015, and we expect to notify authors by May 6.
