Constraint Solving and Language Processing - CSLP 2012 -
Seventh International Workshop
University of Orléans, Orléans, France
September 13-14, 2012


The Constraint Solving and Language Processing (CSLP) workshop
considers the role of constraints in the representation of language
and the implementation of language processing from an
interdisciplinary perspective. This theme should be interpreted
inclusively: contributions from linguistics, computer science,
psycholinguistics and related areas are welcome, and an
interdisciplinary perspective is of particular interest.

Constraints are widely used in linguistics, computer science, and
psychology. How they are used, however, varies widely according to the
research domain: knowledge representation, cognitive modelling,
problem solving mechanisms, etc. These different perspectives are
complementary, each one adding a piece to the puzzle. For example,
linguistics proposes in-depth descriptions implementing constraints in
order to filter out structures by means of description languages,
constraint ranking, etc. The constraint programming paradigm, on the
other hand, shows that constraints have to be taken as a systematic
whole and can thus play a role in building the structures (or can even
replace structures). Finally, psycholinguistics experiment have been
made, investigating the role of constraint systems for cognitive
processes in comprehension and production, as well as addressing how
they can be acquired.


CSLP is open to submissions on topics including, but not limited to:

* Constraints in human language comprehension and production
* Context modelling and discourse interpretation
* Acquisition of constraints
* Constraints and learning
* Cross-theoretical view of the notion of constraint
* New advances in constraint-based linguistic theories
* Constraint satisfaction (CS) technologies for NLP
* Linguistic analysis and linguistic theories biased towards CS or
constraint logic programming (CLP)
* Application of CS or CLP for NLP
* CS and CLP for other than textual or spoken languages, e.g., sign
languages and biological, multimodal human-computer interaction,
visual languages
* Probabilistic constraint-based reasoning for NLP and context


Six CSLP workshops have been organized in the past in: Karlsruhe,
Germany (2011), Hamburg, Germany (2008), Roskilde, Denmark (2007),
Sydney, Australia (2006), Sitges, Spain (2005), Roskilde, Denmark


Submission Deadline: June 10, 2012
Notification: August 1st, 2012
Camera-ready Version: September 1st, 2012

Workshop Dates: September 13-14, 2012


Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files and be prepared
using the Springer LNAI/LNCS format. Detailed formatting instructions
can be found at:

Papers should present original, unpublished work. Simultaneous
submission to other venues with published proceedings is
prohibited. CSLP accepts two kinds of submissions:

- full papers (12 pages including references) reporting completed,
significant research,
- short papers (6 pages including references) reporting ongoing
work and partial results.

Each submission will be reviewed by three program committee
members. Accepted long papers will be presented within 20 min talks
plus 10 min for questions. Accepted short papers will be presented
within 10 min talks plus 5 min for questions. Both paper types will be
published in the workshop proceedings.

Since reviewing will be blind, the submission should not include the
authors' names and affiliations. Other identifying information such as
obvious self-references (e.g., "We showed in [12] ...") and financial
or personal acknowledgements should be omitted in the submitted papers
whenever feasible.

Papers have to be submitted via the easychair conference management
system using the following link:


A volume at an international publisher will be considered for selected
and revised papers, if number and quality of submissions permits.
