Meeting Description: CoSLI-3: Workshop on Computational Models of Spatial Language Interpretation and Generation
Co-located with the 10th International Conference on Computational Semantics
Potsdam, Germany
March 19, 2013

The development of a wide class of so-called situated systems such as robotics, virtual characters, and Geographic Information Systems is heavily dependent on the existence of adequate models of spatial language in order to allow users to interact with these systems when standard graphical, textual, or tactile modes of communication are infeasible or inconvenient.

While early models of spatial term semantics relied on geometrically motivated formal representations, it is now widely recognized that spatial term meaning is also dependent on functional and pragmatic features. Consequently, representations of spatial term semantics must accommodate geometric, functional and pragmatics aspects of situated meaning. The aim of this workshop is to draw together the often orthogonal views on formal symbolic and situated spatial language in order to foster theories and representations which do justice to the complexity and situated nature of spatial language use.
