              Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics
                         IRIT, Toulouse, France
                            18-20 June 2014

                      FIRST CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS


LACL'2014 is the 8th international conference 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 IRIT, Toulouse, France, from 18 to 20 June


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 dialog 
     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 may
consist of up to 12 pages of content (including figures, bibliography,
possible appendices). In exceptional cases by prior agreement with
program committee a paper up to 16 pages may be considered.  It is
expected that each accepted paper be presented at the meeting by one of
its authors.

Submission is exclusively admitted electronically, in PDF format,
through the EasyChair system. The submission site is PROCEEDINGS

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

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,

Intelligence (volumes 1328, 1582, 2014, 2099, 3492, 6736), and the
