Thematic Session

Computational semantics and pragmatics

In light of the fact that work in semantics often addresses pragmatic issues and with the increasing prominence of both experimental and computational approaches CSSP now welcomes papers employing theoretical/experimental/computational methods in:

- syntax,
- semantics,
- pragmatics
- the syntax-semantics interface
- the semantics-pragmatics interface
- language acquisition: syntax-semantics-pragmatics

The thematic session will focus on the issue of: Computational semantics and pragmatics.

Submission: We invite submissions for 40 minute presentations (including 10 minutes for discussion). CSSP is changing its submission procedures. Submissions are expected to describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work, hence submissions should be up to 5 pages plus an extra page for references (anonymous pdf). The submission procedure and templates for abstracts are available at
