CfP: Natural Language Processing in Artificial Intelligence - NLPinAI 2018

Special Session on
Natural Language Processing in Artificial Intelligence - NLPinAI 2018

16-18 January, 2018 - Funchal, Madeira, Portugal


Within the 10th International Conference on Agents and Artificial
Intelligence - ICAART 2018

Computational and technological developments that incorporate natural
language are proliferating. Adequate coverage encounters difficult problems
related to partiality, underspecification, and context-dependency, which
are signature features of information in nature and natural languages.
Furthermore, agents (humans or computational systems) are information
conveyors, interpreters, or participate as components of informational
content. Generally, language processing depends on agents' knowledge,
reasoning, perspectives, and interactions.

The session covers theoretical work, advanced applications, approaches, and
techniques for computational models of information and its presentation by
language (artificial, human, or natural in other ways). The goal is to
promote intelligent natural language processing and related models of
thought, mental states, reasoning, and other cognitive processes.

We invite contributions relevant to the following topics, without limiting
to them:

- Type theories for applications to language and information processing
- Computational grammar
- Computational syntax
- Computational semantics of natural languages
- Computational syntax-semantics interface
- Interfaces between morphology, lexicon, syntax, semantics, speech, text,
- Parsing
- Multilingual processing
- Large-scale grammars of natural languages
- Interfaces between morphology, lexicon, syntax, semantics, speech, text,
- Models of computation and algorithms for natural language processing
- Computational models of partiality, underspecification, and
- Models of situations, contexts, and agents, for applications to language
- Information about space and time in language models and processing
- Models of computation and algorithms for linguistics
- 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 processing based on biological fundamentals of information and
- Computational neuroscience of language

available at the page with paper Templates:


Please also check the Guidelines:


Papers must be submitted electronically via the web-based submission system
using the appropriated button Submit Paper on the pages of NLPinAI 2018.

The Conference Proceedings will be published under an ISBN number by
SCITEPRESS and include final versions of all accepted papers, adjusted to
satisfy reviewers’ recommendations. They will be obtainable on paper and
CD-Rom support, and made available for online consultation at the
SCITEPRESS Digital Library. Online publication is exclusive to papers which
have been both published and presented at the event.

Indexation: The proceedings will be submitted to Thomson Reuters Conference
Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI/ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier
Engineering Village Index) and Scopus for indexation.
