Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Computational Linguistics; Philosophy of Language; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Call Deadline: 12-May-2014

Meeting Description:

What we call here 'computational intelligence' is the study of data mining, information extraction, knowledge processing, language processing, discourse processing, and any area that relates to an intelligent processing of language, information and knowledge. Until recently this area has been performed by experts in computer science or experts in artificial intelligence. In fact, there were many computer applications in computational intelligence without any theoretical support.

Today, people working in such areas often work as members of pluridisciplinary and interdisciplinary teams, including, of course, computer scientists and expert of artificial intelligence but also mathematicians, statisticians, linguists, language experts, philosophers, logicians, cognitive scientists, neuroscientists, psycholinguists, anthropologists, etc. Therefore, computational intelligence must become more connected to areas as cognitive science, mathematics, statistic, linguistics, philosophy, logics, neuroscience, etc. through the development of methods, strategies and algorithms for all aspects of language processing, discourse processing, knowledge processing, information processing, etc. These methods and strategies can be seen according to their theoretical or practical significance.

Call for Papers:

The aim of this track is to present original works related to computational intelligence. These works should focus either on practical applications, or on results of theoretical foundations of the discipline. We, therefore, invite authors for original papers submissions for any work related to theoretical or practical aspects of Computational Intelligence.

Topics of Interest:

Submissions are invited in, but not limited to, the following areas:

- Philosophy of language and discourse
- Cognitive science
- Non standard logics
- Natural language processing
- Computational linguistics (lexicology; morphology; syntax; semantics)
- Information extraction
- Ontologies
- Knowledge processing
- Data mining, text mining, web mining
- Information retrieval
- Web semantics

Papers should be submitted in electronic form (PDF) using EasyChair.

Papers are up to 6 pages and must be formatted according to the ACM proceedings format which can be found here: http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. Papers that fail to comply with length limit will be rejected.

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 peer reviewers. After the preliminary notification date, authors rebut by evidence and arguments all reviewer inquiries and their comments. Based on the rebuttal feedback, reviewers notify authors with the final decision.

Selection criteria will include: relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical soundness, and quality of presentation. Preference will be given to submissions that take strong or challenging positions on important emergent topics related to digital ecosystems. At least one author should attend the conference to present the paper.

The conference Proceedings will be published by ACM and indexed by the ACM Digital Library and DBLP.

Important Dates:

Full papers submission: May 12, 2014
Notification of paper acceptance: July 13, 2014
Camera-ready papers: August 7, 2014
Special track days: September 15-17, 2014
