TITLE
BOOT-LA: Bootstrapping in Language Acquisition: Psychological,
Linguistic and Computational Aspects

SCOPE
Bootstrapping approaches to language acquisition have been extensively
addressed by researchers in domains like psycholinguistics,
computational and theoretical linguistics, cognitive science, machine
learning. This workshop aims at bringing together researchers in these
fields.

LOCATION
Indiana University, Bloomington campus, Bloomington, Indiana.

TIME
21st to 23rd of April, 2003

AREAS OF INTEREST 

The workshop seeks to provide a forum for presentation and discussion
of original research on different aspects of bootstrapping including,
but not limited to:
* its role in language acquisition for different domains, from a
theoretical, computational and psycholinguistic point of view
* empirical evidence for bootstrapping strategies from
psycholinguistic, psychological or cognitive science
* concepts, algorithms, techniques, strategies and concequences from
work on:
	- grammar induction
	- learnability theory
	- parameter setting approaches
	- constraint-based approaches
	- cue-based learning
* computational approaches to learning subctegorization frames
* how much knowledge can be bootstrapped from function words
* strategies for lexical/sense disambiguation.

Invited speakers are:

Morten Christiansen (Cornell University)
Michael Gasser (Indiana University)
William Sakas (City University of New York)
Linda Smith (Indiana University)
Juan Uriagereka (University of Maryland and University of the Basque
