Call For Papers

** CMCL – Third Call for Papers and Deadline Extension***

The Workshop on Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics (CMCL 2022)
Co-located with ACL 2022 in Dublin

*Workshop Description*
Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics (CMCL) 2022 is a one-day workshop held in conjunction with the conference of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL). The goal of CMCL is to provide a venue for computational research on cognitive theories of language processing, representation and acquisition. The 2022 workshop follows in the tradition of earlier meetings at ACL 2010, ACL 2011, NAACL-HLT 2012, ACL 2013, ACL 2014, NAACL 2015, EACL 2017, LSA 2018, NAACL 2019, EMNLP 2020 and NAACL 2021.

*Scope and Topics*
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Stochastic models of factors influencing a speaker’s production or comprehension decisions
Models of semantic interpretation, including psychologically realistic notions of word and phrase meaning and composition
Incremental parsers for diverse grammar formalisms and their psychological plausibility
Models of speaker-specific linguistic adaptation and/or generalization
Models of first and second language acquisition and bilingual language processing
Behavioral tasks for better understanding neural models of linguistic representation
Models and empirical analysis of the relationship between mechanistic psycholinguistic principles and pragmatics or semantics
Models of lexical acquisition, including phonology, morphology, and semantics
Psychologically motivated models of grammar induction
Psychologically plausible models of lexical or conceptual representations
Models of language disorders, such as aphasia, dyslexia, or dysgraphia
Behavioral datasets or resources for modeling language processing or production in languages other than English
Models of language comprehension difficulty
Models of language learning and generalization
Models of linguistic information propagation and language evolution in communities
Cognitively-motivated models of discourse and dialogue
Network science and language processing

*Workshop submissions*
We accept three categories of papers: regular workshop papers, extended abstracts and cross-submissions. Only regular workshop papers will be included in the proceedings as archival publications. All submissions should be in PDF format:
To facilitate double-blind reviewing, submitted manuscripts should not include any identifying information about the authors. Submissions with associated preprints (e.g. arXiv) will be considered. Submissions must be formatted using ACL 2022 templates, available at:

REGULAR WORKSHOP PAPERS can be either full (8 pages of content + references) or short papers (4 pages + references) reporting original and unpublished research that combines cognitive modeling and computational linguistics. *If a workshop paper has been submitted elsewhere, the authors have to declare it at submission time. Papers to be presented at CMCL 2022 must be withdrawn from other venues.*

EXTENDED ABSTRACTS (from 2 to 4 pages + references) describe preliminary work or results that have not been published before. Accepted abstracts will be presented at the workshop, but will *not* be included in the workshop proceedings.

We will also accept CROSS-SUBMISSIONS (from 2 to 4 pages + references) for papers on related topics that have already appeared in a non-NLP venue (e.g. CogSci). These papers will be presented at the workshop, but will *not* be included in the proceedings. Interested authors are asked to add a note on the original venue in the submission.

*Workshop Timeline EXTENDED DEADLINE*
March 7, 2022: Submission deadline for all the workshop papers (including the system description papers of the shared task participants)
March 26, 2022: Notification of acceptance
April 10, 2022: Camera-ready version due
May 26, 2022: Workshop date
All deadlines are 11:59 PM (UTC-12:00)

Vera Demberg (Saarland University)
Andrea E. Martin (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics)

*Workshop Organizers*
Emmanuele Chersoni (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University)
Nora Hollenstein (University of Copenaghen)
Cassandra Jacobs (University of Buffalo)
Yohei Oseki (University of Tokyo)
Laurent Prévot (Aix-Marseille University)
Enrico Santus (Bayer Pharmaceuticals)
