Meeting Description:

This special track is part of the International FLAIRS 2011 conference.
Its aim is to provide an international forum for discussing the latest
approaches in subfields of computational linguistics related to cognitive
semantics and to artificial intelligence. Its aim is also to exchange ideas
concerning the way of building efficient systems of language analysis based
on cognitive semantic models.

Its mission is to prove the increase of interaction between modeling in
cognitive semantics and computer implementation: a good system analysis
requires a good semantic model as framework. On the other hand, the need
for semantic models other than those based on statistical methods has to be
proved.

Call for Papers

Traditionally, the study of computational linguistics has been performed by
computer scientists, specializing in the application of computers to the
processing of a natural language.

Today, computational linguists often work as members of interdisciplinary
teams, including linguists (specifically trained in linguistics), language
experts (persons with some level of ability in the languages relevant to a
given project), and computer scientists. In general, computational linguistics
draws upon the involvement of linguists, computer scientists, experts in
artificial intelligence, mathematicians, logicians, cognitive scientists,
cognitive psychologists, psycholinguists, anthropologists and
neuroscientists, among others.

Computational linguistics must become more connected to the cognitive
sciences through the development of cognitive semantic theories.
Computational linguistics is connected to artificial intelligence through the
development of methods and algorithms for all aspects of language analysis
and their computer implementation. We can see language analysis divided
into two parts: theoretical analysis and application. The theoretical aspect
includes standard areas studied in linguistics: semantics, syntax, and
morphology. Semantic theories guide the development of syntactic theories
and morphology. Semantic theories can be based on some specific features
of computation, but at the present stage of research, there is a gap
between linguistic analysis and computer applications in two senses: there
are many computer applications without linguistic theoretical support and,
conversely, there are a number of theoretical methods with no computer
implementation. Another epistemological feature of the present stage of
research is that most computational linguistic methods are focused on
statistical approaches. The advantage of these methods is that they are
easy to apply but the drawback is that they distort the qualitative and
genuine cognitive features of language.

The goal of this track is to provide an international forum for discussing the
latest approaches in subfields of computational linguistics related to
cognitive semantics and to artificial intelligence. Its aim is also to exchange
ideas concerning the way of building efficient systems of language analysis
based on cognitive semantic models.

Its mission is to prove the increase of interaction between modeling in
cognitive semantics and computer implementation: a good system analysis
requires a good semantic model as framework. On the other hand, the need
for semantic models other than those based on statistical methods has to be
proved.

This track is intended to present works ranking from logical and
mathematical models in syntax and semantics (logic of objects, topological
theories of time and space etc.) as foundations of the design and analysis
to natural language processing systems.

Papers and contributions are encouraged for any work relating to AI,
Cognitive Semantics, Computational Linguistics and Logics. Topics of
interest may include (but are in no way limited to)

1. Cognitive semantics,

2. Logics of language,

3. Language modeling,

4. Computational linguistics (lexicology; morphology; syntax; semantics).

Note: We invite original papers (i.e. work not previously submitted, in
submission, or to be submitted to another conference during the reviewing
process).

Invited Speakers

Professor Daniel Vanderveken, Department of Philosophy, Université du
Québec à Trois-Rivières, Canada

Submission Guidelines

Interested authors should format their papers according to AAAI formatting
guidelines. The papers should be original work (i.e., not submitted, in
submission, or submitted to another conference while in review). Papers
should not exceed 6 pages (2 pages for a poster) and are due by
November 22nd, 2010. For FLAIRS-24, the 2011 conference, the reviewing
is a double blind process. Fake author names and affiliations must be used
on submitted papers to provide double-blind reviewing. Papers must be
submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system, which can be
accessed through the main conference web site (http://www.flairs-24.info/).
Note: do not use a fake name for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair
account information is hidden from reviewers. Authors should indicate the
AI, Cognitive Semantics, Computational Linguistics and Logics special track
for submissions. The proceedings of FLAIRS will be published by the AAAI.
Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a form transferring
copyright of their contribution to AAAI. FLAIRS requires that there be at
least one full author registration per paper.
