                          Workshop on
Logic and Algorithms in Computational Linguistics 2017 (LACompLing2017)
                   Stockholm, August 16-19, 2017


     * Extended submission deadline for regular papers *
               ** May 10 (any time on Earth), 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, logic, and many areas of mathematics - 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 logic, mathematics, and computer science in present day
computational linguistics. It intends to be a forum for presenting new
results as well as work in progress.

The workshop focuses mainly on logical approaches to computational
processing of natural language, and on the applicability of methods and
techniques from the study of artificial languages (programming/logic) in
computational linguistics. We invite participation and submissions from
other relevant approaches too, especially if they can inspire new work and
