LACL 2014
Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics
IRIT, Toulouse, France
18-20 June 2014
Co-located with the CSLP 2014,
8-th International Workshop on Constraint Solving and Language

17-18 June 2014



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
2014 (with support from IRIT, Université Paul Sabatier et INP de


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

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


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

/*/ Instructions for submissions to CSLP 2014 are given at the site of the workshop.

Invited speakers:

Prof. Zhaohui Luo, Computer Science Department, Royal Holloway,
University of London, U.K.

Prof. Michael Moortgat, Department of Language, Literature and
Communication, Utrecht University, the Netherlands

Prof. Reinhard Muskens, Department of Philosophy, Tilburg University,

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 LACL'2011 appeared in the series Lecture
Notes in Artificial Intelligence (volumes 1328, 1582, 2014,
2099, 3492, 6736), and the proceedings of LACL 2012 in Lacture Notes
in Computer Science (volume 7351) published by Springer.


Paper submission deadline: March 24, 2014
Notification of acceptance: April 5, 2014
Camera ready copies due: April 15, 2014
Conference dates: June 18-20, 2014


Exact amount can be fixed only after the organizers will have better
estimation of the number of participants. We expect to keep it at the
level of approximately 300 euros (for LACL only) and 100 euros (for
workshop only) with usual reduced rates for students and participation
in both events.
