Bernadette Sharp (Staffordshire University, United Kingdom,

Scope of the Workshop:

The aim of this workshop is to foster interactions among researchers and practitioners in Natural Language Processing (NLP) by taking a Cognitive Science perspective. Given the breadth of the topic, we welcome reports on work from many perspectives, including but not limited to computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology, language learning, artificial intelligence, etc.

Call for Papers:

Topics of interest include, without being limited to:

- Computational Models of NLP
- Cognitive and Psychological Models of NLP
- Emotion and Language Processing
- Evolutionary NLP
- Discourse Processing
- Pragmatics and NLP
- Social Cognition of Language
- Embodied and Situated NLP
- Multimodality in Speech / Text Processing
- Text Summarisation and Information Extraction
- Natural Language Interfaces and Dialogue Systems
- Translation and Machine Translation
- Multi-Lingual Processing
- Speech Processing
- Tools and Resources in NLP
- Corpus Linguistics
- Text Mining
- Ontologies

These topics can be addressed from any of the following perspectives: full automation by machines for machine (traditional NLP or Human Language Technology), semi-automated processing, i.e. machine-mediated processing (programs assisting people in their tasks), simulation of human cognitive process.

Important Dates:

Paper submission: 15 June 2013Authors’ notification: 31 July 2013Final paper submission and registration: 15 September 2013Registration for tutorial: To be confirmed (limited to max. 30 participants)
