Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 28-May-2021

Meeting Description:

Computational and technological developments that incorporate natural language and reasoning methods are proliferating. Adequate coverage encounters difficult problems related to partiality, underspecification, agents, and context dependency, which are signature features of information in nature, natural languages, and reasoning.

The session covers theoretical work, applications, approaches, and techniques for computational models of information, language (artificial, human, or natural in other ways), reasoning. The goal is to promote computational systems and related models of thought, mental states, reasoning, and other cognitive processes.
