Meeting Description:

Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics (CMCL) and TopiCS special issue Models of Language Comprehension

A workshop to be held
June 23, 2011
at the Association for Computational Linguistics meeting
in Portland, Oregon
http://www.psy.cmu.edu/~cmcl/

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 several previous meetings

(1) The computational psycholinguistics meeting at CogSci in Berkeley in 1997
(2) The Incremental Parsing workshop at ACL 2004
(3) The first CMCL workshop at ACL 2010

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

Workshop Chairs:

Frank Keller, School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh
David Reitter, Department of Psychology, Carnegie Mellon University

Program Committee:

Steven Abney, Michigan
Harald R. Baayen , Alberta
Matthew Crocker, Saarland
Vera Demberg, Saarland

Call for Participation

Early Registration by May 23

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.' Following several successful related workshops, we have selected from a large number of submissions several outstanding 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 presents a broad spectrum of work in the cognitive science of language, at all levels of analysis from sounds to discourse. It emphasizes precise, computational and cognitively valid and empirically verified models. This year's topics include:

* Cognitively plausible parsers, syntactic and morphological
* Segmentation,
* Human language acquisition, including grammar induction,
* Models of adaptation and coordination in language production and comprehension in dialogue,
* Referring expression interpretation,
* Reading,
* Lexical semantics, and
* Linguistic variants of clinical relevance.

Best Student Paper

The best paper whose first author is a student will receive the Best Student Paper award, sponsored by the Cognitive Science Society. The award consists of USD 250 and a one-year membership to the Cognitive Science Society.

Participation

To participate in the workshop, register now at the ACL2011 site:

Early registration runs until May 23, 2011.
