Meeting Description: This will be a full-day workshop at the 35th Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society.

Mental model ascription can be defined as inferring features of another human or artificial agent that cannot be directly observed, such as that agent’s beliefs, plans, goals, intentions, personality traits, mental and emotional states, and knowledge about the world. This capability is an essential functionality of intelligent agents if they are to engage in sophisticated collaborations with people. The common thread of this workshop will be the computational modeling of unobservable features by intelligent agents using language input as at least one of their modes of perception.
