Meeting Description:

Production of Referring Expressions: Bridging the Gap between Cognitive and Computational Approaches to Reference 

This workshop is organized as part of the 35th Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society (CogSci 2013), and is a follow-up to successful workshops on the production of referring expressions in Amsterdam (http://pre2009.uvt.nl) and Boston (http://pre2011.uvt.nl).

Invited Speakers:

Herb Clark (Stanford)
Noah Goodman (Stanford)

Call for Papers:

We invite submissions on all topics related to reference production, and particularly encourage work that combines experimental, computational and theoretical approaches. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

- Collaborative reference, referring expressions in interactive settings, audience/recipient design
- Non-determinism in reference production: how to algorithmically model non-determinism and individual variation in human reference production?
- Interaction between comprehension and production of referring expressions
- Visual scene perception and its influence on the production of referring expressions
- Psychologically plausible computational models of reference production
- When and how do human speakers produce complex descriptions (e.g., plurals, quantified descriptions, relational descriptions)?
- Vagueness: the use of vague (e.g. gradable) predicates in referring expressions
- Referential over- and underspecification: why and how do speakers produce over- or underspecified descriptions?
- Common ground, cooperativeness and shared/private information in reference
- Realization of referring expressions (including speech and gesture)
- How do social and contextual factors influence reference production?
- Data-collection and experimental evaluation method

Abstract Submission:

Paper selection will be based on extended, 1000-word abstracts. The only accepted format for submitted abstracts is PDF. 

Abstracts should be submitted via EasyChair:
