applied fields, cognitive accounts for language processing, and computational
modeling of language.

We invite prospective authors to submit abridged versions of original and
unpublished papers on all aspects of theoretical and computational linguistics.
Possible topics include but are not limited to: (1) language, (2) information,
and (3) computation. Priority will be given to papers that are interdisciplinary
