Call Deadline: 15-Nov-2013

Meeting Description:

Since the 1990s the practice of natural language processing (NLP) has gradually shifted from logic-based symbol manipulation systems first to purely statistical, and more recently to hybrid systems that combine structural and statistical methods. The mathematical theory of hybrid NLP is still not fully mature, and the special session intends to bring together mathematicians, computer scientists, theoretical and computational linguists and AI researchers with an interest in its foundations.

Call for Papers:

Subjects of the special session include, but are not limited to, NLP-related advances in:

- Inductive learning
- Spectral techniques
- Formal grammars
- Commonsense reasoning
- Low-pass semantics
- Sparse models
- LSTM, deep learning
- Compressed sensing
- CVS/distributional theories

Please submit a 2-page abstract (not counting references) by November 15 at http://www.cs.uic.edu/bin/view/Isaim2014/PaperSubmission. The final copy, to be posted at the conference website, will be due Dec 15.
