Meeting Description:

Aims and Scope:

Formal tools coming from logic, category theory, are important for natural language processing and especially for computational semantics. Moreover, work on these tools borrows heavily from all areas of theoretical computer science. In the other direction, applications having to do with natural language
have inspired developments on the formal side.

Invited Speakers to Include:

Anne Abeillé (to be confirmed) - Université Paris Diderot
Aarne Ranta - Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg


Valeria de Paiva, Nuance

Call for Papers:

Natural Language and Computer Science (NLCS '14)
17-18 July, 2014 Vienna, Austria

Endorsed by the Association for Computational Linguistics
Special Interest Group on Computational Semantics
Vienna Summer of Logic http://vsl2014.at/
Computer Science Logic - Logic In Computer Science 2014

Paper submission deadline: April 1, 2014

The workshop invites papers on both topics and their applications, as well as on the combination between logical and statistical methods.

Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

- Linguistic, computational and logical aspects of the interface between syntax and semantics
- Logical aspects of linguistic theories
- Logic for semantics of lexical items, sentences, discourse and dialog
- Continuations in natural language semantics
- Formal tools in textual inference, such as logics for natural language inference
- Applications of category theory in semantics
- Linear logic in semantics
- Formal approaches to unifying data-driven (quantitative, statistical) and declarative (logical) approaches to semantics
- Natural language processing tools using some logic

Important Dates:

Paper submission deadline: April 1, 2014
Author notification: May 1, 2014
Electronic versions of papers due: May 15, 2014
Workshop: July 17, 2014


Please submit extended abstracts of 4-10 pages using EasyChair:
