Workshop on Natural Language Processing and Automated Reasoning (NLPAR 2013)

Collocated with the 12th International Conference on Logic Programming and
Nonmonotonic Reasoning 2013, A Corunna, Spain, September 15-19, 2013


Natural Language Processing (NLP) has been of interest for a long time; to
the Artificial Intelligence community in general and to the Logic
Programming and Automated Reasoning community in particular. NLP approaches
that are based on mathematical logic promise a deeper understanding of
natural language than possible with purely statistics-based methods. A
deep understanding is beneficial and necessary in most areas of NLP, for
example word and entity recognition; word sense disambiguation; parsing and
syntactical disambiguation; and reasoning over the semantics and pragmatics
of words, phrases, sentences, and whole discourses.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers with a common interest in
addressing the challenges of natural language processing using automated
reasoning methods. As submissions to this workshop, theoretical results,
reports about systems and experiments, and work that combines mathematical
logic and statistical methods, are welcome.

Topics include but are not limited to:

* Morphology
* Named Entity Recognition
* Syntax
* Coreference Resolution
* Semantics
* Discourse
* Pragmatics
* Ontologies for NLP
* Controlled Natural Language
* Question Answering
* Recognizing Textual Entailment
* Natural Language Generation
* Text Summarization
* Machine Translation


NLPAR 2013 aims to present original scientific research, and will not
accept any paper which, at the time of submission, has already been
published or accepted for publication in a journal or previous conference.

Submissions must be written in English and formatted according to the
Springer LNCS/LNAI author instructions.

Papers must present original research and not exceed 12 pages including
title page, references and figures. Paper submission and peer review is
electronic and managed through the following easychair webpage.

Proceedings will be published online after the workshop, we intend to
publish them as CEUR workshop proceedings on
