CALL FOR PAPERS

Partiality, Underspecification, and Natural Language Processing - PUaNLP
2017

Special Session at ICAART 2017

http://www.icaart.org/PUaNLP.aspx

Porto, Portugal | 24 - 26 February, 2017

=============================================================
SCOPE

Computational and technological developments that incorporate natural
language are proliferating. Adequate coverage encounters difficult problems
related to partiality, underspecification, and context-dependency, which
are signature features of information in nature and natural languages.
Furthermore, agents (humans or computational systems) can participate in
informational content, or influence its flow as information conveyors and
interpreters.

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

TOPICS

The session invites contributions relevant to the following topics, without
limitations to them:

- Type theories for applications to language and information processing
- Computational grammar
- Computational semantics
- Computational syntax-semantics interface
- Parsing
- Multilingual processing
- Large-scale grammars of natural languages
- Models of computation and algorithms for natural language processing
- Integration of interdisciplinary methods, e.g., formal, computational,
model theoretic, graphical, diagrammatic, statistical, and other related
methods
- Computational models of partiality, underspecification, and
context-dependency
- Models of situations, contexts, and agents, for applications to language
processing
- Information retrieval from written and spoken language
- Bio-information and natural language
- Language processing based on biological fundamentals of information and
languages
- Computational neuroscience of language
