The CSLP at Context'11 workshop
considers the role of constraints in the representation of language
and the implementation of language processing from an
interdisciplinary perspective.  This theme should be interpreted
inclusively: contributions from linguistics, computer science,
psycholinguistics and related areas are very welcome, and an
interdisciplinary perspective is of particular interest.

Constraints are widely used in linguistics, computer science, and
psychology. How they are used, however, varies widely according to the
research domain: knowledge representation, cognitive modelling,
problem solving mechanisms, etc. These different perspectives are
complementary, each one adding a piece to the puzzle. For example,
linguistics proposes in-depth descriptions implementing constraints in
order to filter out structures by means of description languages,
constraint ranking, etc. The constraint programming paradigm, on the
other hand, shows that constraints have to be taken as a systematic
whole and can thus play a role in building the structures (or can even
replace structures).  Finally, psycholinguistics experiment have been
made, investigating the role of constraint systems for cognitive
processes in comprehension and production, as well as addressing how
they can be acquired.

The topics include, but are not limited to

  - Constraints in human language comprehension and production
  - Context modelling and discourse interpretation
  - Acquisition of constraints
  - Constraints and learning
  - Cross-theoretical view of the notion of constraint
  - New advances in constraint-based linguistic theories
  - Constraint satisfaction (CS) technologies for NLP
  - Linguistic analysis and linguistic theories biased towards CS or
    constraint logic programming (CLP)
  - Application of CS or CLP for NLP
  - CS and CLP for other than textual or spoken languages, e.g., sign
    languages and biological, multimodal human-computer interaction,
    visual languages
  - Probabilistic constraint-based reasoning for NLP and context

Previously published papers cannot be accepted. The submissions will
be reviewed by the international program committee. One author for
each accepted paper must attend the workshop in order to present the
