Message 1: Cognitively Plausible Models of Semantic Processing

Date: Fri, 16 Mar 2001 19:34:51 +0000 (GMT)
From: SEMPRO - Semantic Processing Workshop <semprocogsci.ed.ac.uk>
Subject: Cognitively Plausible Models of Semantic Processing



				SEMPRO-2001: 
 COGNITIVELY PLAUSIBLE MODELS OF SEMANTIC PROCESSING

	 (A workshop in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the 
		 Cognitive Science Society) 

 July 31st, University of Edinburgh

 http://www.hcrc.ed.ac.uk/~sempro/


The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to present models of
semantic processing (computational and non-computational) motivated by
psychological evidence or corpus studies. Topics of interest include:

- incrementality and underspecification in semantic processing
- lexical access and disambiguation
- semantic composition (e.g., interpretation of modifiers such as adjectives,
 of modal expressions, of negation)
- anaphora resolution
- scope assignment
- detection and exploitation of discourse structure 
- semantic interpretation in dialogues (e.g., models of grounding)

We would especially like to encourage the exchange of results between 
psychological experimentation, computational modelling, and corpus-based work. 
PROGRAM COMMITTEE (tentative): Massimo Poesio, Alan Garnham, Maria Lapata,
