2) Psycholinguistics and discourse, specifically the processes and knowledgestructures used in understanding and producing written and spoken language.
3) Learning technologies, including how developments in computer science andcomputational modeling can be applied to learning with the goal of applyingprinciples of cognitive science to educational practice via technology to createautomated learning environments.
4) Computational and statistical modeling, including advances in computationallinguistics, natural language processing, multinomial processing tree models, andmore.
