Meeting Description:

Natural language understanding systems require a knowledge base provided with formal representations reflecting the structure of human beings' cognitive system. Although surface semantics can be sufficient in some other systems, the construction of a robust knowledge base guarantees its use in most natural language processing applications, consolidating thus the concept of resource reuse. This conference deals with meaning and knowledge representation in the context of natural language understanding from the perspective of theoretical linguistics, computational linguistics, cognitive science, knowledge engineering or artificial intelligence.

Venue: Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Spain.

The official language of the conference is English.

Call for Papers:

We invite 20-minute (plus 10-minute discussion) presentation proposals on the following general and/or specific topics:

General Topics:

- At the crossroads between functionalist, cognitivist and/or constructionist approaches
- Division of labour of lexical semantics and constructional semantics
- Role of metaphor and metonymy and other cognitive operations in meaning construction and grammar
- Relationship between semantics, pragmatics and discourse in meaning construction and/or meaning representation.
- Cognitive modeling and construal
- Pragmatic inferencing

Papers that pay special attention to the treatment of these topics within the Lexical Constructional Model (LCM) and FunGramKB are particularly welcome.

LCM and FunGramKB Specific Topics:

- Meaning construction and meaning representation in the LCM
- Methodological tools in the LCM (e.g. equipollence)
- Syntactic representation in the LCM
- The form of lexical and constructional templates in the LCM
- Connections between the LCM and FunGramKB
- Lexico-grammatical knowledge in FunGramKB
- Terminology in FunGramKB
- Conceptual representation in FunGramKB
- Reasoning in FunGramKB
- NLP applications of FunGramKB

Submissions should include an abstract with a maximum of 500 words, excluding references.

Important Dates:

Abstract submission deadline: February 28, 2014
Notification of acceptance: March 21, 2014
Registration deadline: April 25, 2014
Conference: July 2, 3 and 4, 2014
