                        CALL FOR PAPERS

                          Workshop on 
Logic and Algorithms in Computational Linguistics 2017 (LACompLing2017)
                   Stockholm, August 16-19, 2017


     * Submission deadline for regular papers: April 14, 2017 *
=================================================
                      Affiliated with the 
26th Annual EACSL Conference on Computer Science Logic CSL'2017
                   Stockholm, 20--26 August 2017

                     Co-located with:
               Logic in Stockholm 2017
=================================================

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, logic, and many areas of mathematics - 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 logic, mathematics, and computer science in present day computational linguistics. It intends to be a forum for presenting new results as well as work in progress.
--------------------------------

SCOPE
==
The workshop focuses mainly on logical approaches to computational processing of natural language, and on the applicability of methods and techniques from the study of artificial languages (programming/logic) in computational linguistics. We invite participation and submissions from other relevant approaches too, especially if they can inspire new work and approaches.

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
