in Uppsala, Sweden

Call for Papers

Workshop Description
This workshop provides a venue for work in computational psycholinguistics.
ACL Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Martin Kay described this topic as
"build[ing] models of language that reflect in some interesting way, on the ways
in which people use language." The 2010 workshop follows in the tradition of
three previous meetings

(1) the computational psycholinguistics meeting at CogSci in Berkeley in 1997
(2) the thematic session on computational psycholinguistics at ACL in 1999
(3) the Incremental Parsing workshop at ACL 2004

in inviting contributions that apply methods from computational linguistics
to problems in the cognitive modeling of any and all natural language abilities.

Scope and Topics
The workshop invites a broad spectrum of work in the cognitive science of
language, at all levels of analysis from sounds to discourse. Topics include,
but are not limited to

- incremental parsers for diverse grammar formalisms
- derivations of comprehension difficulty predictions, or generalization
predictions in language learning
- stochastic models of factors encouraging one production or interpretation
over its competitors
- models of semantic interpretation, including psychologically-realistic
notions of word & phrase meaning

This call solicits 8-page, full papers reporting original and unpublished
research that combines cognitive modeling and computational linguistics.
Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the workshop and will be
published in the workshop proceedings. They should emphasize obtained results
rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion
of the reported results. A paper accepted for presentation at the workshop must
not be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly
available proceedings. If essentially identical papers are submitted to other
conferences or workshops as well, this fact must be indicated at submission time.

To facilitate double-blind reviewing, submitted paper should not include any
identifying information about the authors.

Submissions must be formatted using ACL 2010 style files available at

Contributions should be submitted in PDF via the submission site:

The submission deadline is 11:59PM Eastern Time on April 5th, 2010.

Pathway to Journal Publication
All accepted CMCL papers will be published in the workshop proceedings as is
customary at ACL. However, CMCL presenters whose work holds broad interest for
the wider cognitive science community will be encouraged to prepare extended
versions of their papers (16 pages in APA format). If approved by a second round
of reviewing, these extended papers will appear in a forthcoming issue of
TopiCS, a Journal of the Cognitive Science Society, entitled "Models of Language
Comprehension". These expanded papers will need to be substantially adapted to
address the broader TopiCS readership. The Program Committee will be assisted by
additional experts, as needed, to apply this and other review criteria.

Student Paper Award
Submissions should be marked to indicate whether the first author is
pre-doctoral or not. Papers in this category are eligible for the CMCL Student
Paper Award.
This $250 award is sponsored by the Cognitive Science Society.

Important Dates
Submission deadline: April 5, 2010
Notification of acceptance: May 6, 2010
Camera-ready versions due: May 16, 2010
Workshop: July 15, 2010, following ACL 2010
