The purpose of the workshop is to provide an overview of activities in
the field of Constraint Solving with special emphasis on Natural
Language Processing, and for researchers to meet and exchange ideas.

Constraint Solving (CS), in particular Constraint Logic Programming
(CLP), is a promising platform, perhaps the most promising present
platform, for bringing forward the state of the art in language
processing. The data subjected to processing via constraint solving
may include written and spoken language, formal and semiformal
language, and even general input data to multimodal and pervasive
systems.

CLP and CS have been applied in projects for shallow and deep analysis
and generation of language, and to different sorts of languages. The
view of grammar expressed as a set of conditions simultaneously
constraining and thus defining the set of possible utterances has
influenced formal linguistic theory for more than a decade.

CLP and CS provide flexibility of expression and potential for
interleaving the different phases of language processing, including
handling of pragmatic and semantic information, e.g. ontologies.

Topics considered relevant for the workshop include (but are not
limited to)
- CS technologies for NLP
- Linguistic analysis and linguistic theories biased towards CS or CLP
- Application of CS or CLP for NLP
- CS and CLP for other than (purely) textual or spoken languages,
 e.g., biological, multimodal human-computer interaction, visual, ...

Invited speakers: Philippe Blache, Veronica Dahl, Denys Duchier,
