              Revised Deadline (Now: April 22nd)


	   (A workshop in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the
		     Cognitive Science Society)

                    July 31st, University of Edinburgh


The goal of this workshop is to be a forum and a meeting point for researchers
developing models of semantic / pragmatic processing (computational and
non-computational) motivated by psychological evidence or corpus studies, with
a focus on human language processing.  Topics of interest include:

- incrementality and underspecification in semantic processing
- lexical access and disambiguation
- semantic composition (e.g., interpretation of modifiers such as adjectives,
  of modal expressions, of negation)
- anaphora resolution
- scope assignment
- detection and exploitation of discourse structure
- semantic interpretation in dialogues (e.g., models of grounding)

We would especially like to encourage the exchange of results between
psychological experimentation, computational modelling, and
corpus-based work.

INVITED SPEAKERS: Julie Sedivy (Brown), Anthony Sanford (Glasgow).
