                        CALL FOR PAPERS

                          Workshop on
Logic and Algorithms in Computational Linguistics 2017 (LACompLing2017)
                   Stockholm, August 18-19, 2017


     * Submission deadline for regular papers: April 14, 2017 *

                      Affiliated with the
26th Annual EACSL Conference on Computer Science Logic CSL'2017
                   Stockholm, 20--26 August 2017

                        Co-located with:
                     Logic in Stockholm 2017

Computational linguistics studies natural language in its various
manifestations from a computational point of view, both on the
theoretical level (modeling grammar modules dealing with natural
language form and meaning, and the relation between these two) and on
the practical level (developing applications for language and speech
technology). Right from the start in the 1950ties, there have been
strong links with computer science and logic - one can think of
Chomsky's contributions to the theory of formal languages and
automata, or Lambek's logical modeling of natural language syntax. The
workshop assesses the place of computer science logic in present day
computational linguistics. It intends to be a forum for presenting new
results as well as work in progress.

The workshop focuses on logical approaches to the computational
processing of natural language, and on the applicability of methods
and techniques from the study of artificial languages
(programming/logic) in computational linguistics.

The topics of LACompLing2017 include, but are not limited to:

- Computational theories of human language
- Computational syntax
- Computational semantics
- Computational syntax-semantics interface
- Interfaces between morphology, lexicon, syntax, semantics, speech,
text, pragmatics
- Computational grammar
- Logic and reasoning systems for linguistics
- Type theories for linguistics
- Models of computation and algorithms for linguistics
- Language processing
- Parsing algorithms
- Generation of language from semantic representations
- Large-scale grammars of natural languages
- Multilingual processing
- Data science in language processing
- Machine learning of language
- Interdisciplinary methods
- Integration of formal, computational, model theoretic, graphical,
diagrammatic, statistical, and other related methods
- Logic for information extraction or expression in written and spoken language
- Language theories based on biological fundamentals of information
and languages
- Computational neuroscience of language
