Workshop Purpose:

The CSLP 2008 workshop addresses the question of constraints and
language processing from an interdisciplinary perspective. Constraints
are widely used in linguistics, computer science, and psychology. How
they are used, however, varies widely according to the research
domain: natural language processing, knowledge representation,
cognitive modelling, problem solving mechanisms, etc. The purpose is
to pursue a paradigm, unifying the different approaches into a common
framework capable of explaining how constraints play a role in
representing, processing and acquiring linguistic information, and
this from a formal, technical, and cognitive perspective.

Workshop Topics:

The topics include, but are not limited to, constraint-based
linguistic theories, constraints in human language comprehension and
production, context modelling and discourse interpretation,
acquisition of constraints, probabilistic constraint-based reasoning,
constraint satisfaction technologies and constraint logic programming.
