Meeting Description:

Computational linguistics studies natural language in its various manifestations from a computational point of view, both on the theoretical level (modeling grammar modules dealing with natural language form and meaning, and the relation between these two) and on the practical level (developing applications for language and speech technology). Right from the start in the 1950ties, there have been strong links with computer science and logic - one can think of Chomsky's contributions to the theory of formal languages and automata, or Lambek's logical modeling of natural language syntax. The workshop assesses the place of computer science logic in present day computational linguistics. It intends to be a forum for presenting new results as well as work in progress.

Call for Papers:

Logic and Algorithms in Computational Linguistics 2017 (LACompLing2017)
Stockholm, August 18-19, 2017

The workshop focuses on logical approaches to the computational processing of natural language, and on the applicability of methods and techniques from the study of artificial languages (programming/logic) in computational linguistics.

The topics of LACompLing2017 include, but are not limited to:

- Computational theories of human language
- Computational syntax
- Computational semantics
- Computational syntax-semantics interface
- Interfaces between morphology, lexicon, syntax, semantics, speech, text, pragmatics
- Computational grammar
- Logic and reasoning systems for linguistics
- Type theories for linguistics
- Models of computation and algorithms for linguistics
- Language processing
- Parsing algorithms
- Generation of language from semantic representations
- Large-scale grammars of natural languages
- Multilingual processing
- Data science in language processing
- Machine learning of language
- Interdisciplinary methods
- Integration of formal, computational, model theoretic, graphical, diagrammatic, statistical, and other related methods
- Logic for information extraction or expression in written and spoken language
- Language theories based on biological fundamentals of information and languages
- Computational neuroscience of language
