Logic and Algorithms in Computational Linguistics  2021 (LACompLing2021)
13 - 17 December 2021, online

LACompLing2021 is part of the week
Mathematical Linguistics (MALIN) 2021,
Université de Montpellier (UM),
Montpellier, France,
13 - 17 December 2021, Online

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 1950s, 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 symposium 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.

SCOPE of LACompLing
The symposium 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

The topics of LACompLing2021 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,
- Computational grammar
- Logic and reasoning systems for linguistics
- Type theories for linguistics
- Models of computation and algorithms for linguistics
- Computational approaches of computational linguistics for domain specific
- Language processing
- Parsing algorithms
- Generation of language from semantic representations
- Large-scale grammars of natural languages
- Multilingual processing
- Computational theories and systems of reasoning in natural language
- 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 / or spoken
- Language theories based on biological fundamentals of information and
- Computational neuroscience of language

LACompLing2021 is especially interested in topics on the interconnections
between Logic, Language, and Argumentation, e.g.:

- Formal languages of reasoning and argumentation
- Algorithms related to natural language of argumentation  - theories,
implementations, applications
- Formal models of argumentations
- Logic of preferences
- Beliefs, attitudes, persuasions - theories and applications

Extended Submission and Notification

Submission: 14 November 2021 (was 30 October 2021)
Notification: 21 November 2021 (was 6 November 2021)
Final submissions: TBA ??
LACompLing2021: 13 - 17 December 2021


We welcome submissions of abstracts of presentations of original work. The
intended papers should not be submitted concurrently to another conference
or conference event and should not have been published or submitted for
publication consideration elsewhere.

NOTE: We will not accept submissions that are on work submitted to another
event at MALIN 2021, concurrently during the submission to LACompLing2021.

- Submission of abstracts of presentations:
limited to 1 page, including the title, other heading material, about half
of a page text, and references

- Authors can submit more than one abstract. Invited speakers can submit
invited and contributed abstracts

- The camera-ready submissions may require all the necessary typesetting
sources, which are not in the standard LaTeX distribution

Typesetting Instructions

For LaTeX, authors are required to use Springer LNCS package.  Styles and
templates can be downloaded from Springer, for LaTeX (recommended!) and
Microsoft Word:

For bibliography citations, please use BibTeX with:

We will organize a post-conference, special volume after the symposium
LACompLing2021, for publication of extended papers based on accepted
abstracts with presentations at LACompLing2021. The submissions to the
special volume have to be original, unpublished, and not concurrently
submitted elsewhere. They will go through thorough peer reviews.
