LACL 2012

Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics

July 2-4, 2012

LINA, Nantes, France


LACL'2012 is the 7th edition of a series of international conferences on
logical and formal methods in computational linguistics. This conference
addresses the use of type theoretic, proof theoretic and model theoretic
methods for describing natural language syntax and semantics, as well as
the implementation of natural language processing software relying on
such models. It will be held at the LINA, Nantes, France.


Computer scientists, linguists, mathematicians and philosophers are
invited to present their work on the use of logical methods in
computational linguistics and natural language processing, in natural
language analysis, generation or acquisition.

Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not
limited to:

    * logical foundation of syntactic formalisms
          o categorial grammars
          o minimalist grammars
          o dependency grammars
          o tree adjoining grammars
          o model theoretic syntax
          o formal language theory for natural language processing
          o data-driven approaches
    * logics for semantics of lexical items, sentences, discourse and
          o discourse theories
          o Montague semantics
          o compositionality
          o dynamic logics
          o game semantics
          o situation semantics
          o generative lexicon
	  o categorical semantics
    * applications of these models to natural language processing
          o software for natural language analysis
          o software for acquiring linguistic resources
          o software for natural language generation
          o software for information extraction
	  o inference tasks
          o evaluation
          o scalability


Articles should be written in the LaTeX format of LNCS by Springer (see
authors instructions at and should
not exceed 16 pages (including figures, bibliography, possible
appendices). It is expected that each accepted paper be presented at the
meeting by one of its authors.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format at


Accepted papers will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume
of the FoLLI subline of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by
Springer (


To be announced.


A selection of the 1995 articles appeared in a special issue of the
Journal of Logic, Language and Information (7:4, 1998). The proceedings
of the international conferences LACL'96 ,LACL'97, LACL'98, LACL'2001,
LACL'2005 and LACL'2011 appeared in the series Lecture Notes in
Artificial Intelligence (volumes 1328, 1582, 2014, 2099, 3492, 6736)
published by Springer.
