Call For Papers


10th International Workshop on Natural Language Processing and Cognitive Science
NLPCS 2013

15-16th October 2013, Marseille, France
(17th October 2013: Tutorials, to be confirmed)

Bernadette Sharp (Staffordshire University, United Kingdom,

and Michael Zock (CNRS-LIF, Aix-Marseille université, France,

SCOPE of the workshop
The aim of this workshop is to foster interactions among researchers and
practitioners in Natural Language Processing (NLP) by taking a Cognitive
Science perspective. Given the breadth of the topic, we welcome reports on
work from many perspectives, including but not limited to computational
linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology, language learning,
artificial intelligence, etc.

Hence, topics of interest include, without being limited to:
- Computational Models of NLP
- Cognitive and Psychological Models of NLP
- Emotion and Language Processing
- Evolutionary NLP
- Discourse Processing
- Pragmatics and NLP
- Social Cognition of Language
- Embodied and Situated NLP
- Multimodality in Speech / Text Processing
- Text Summarisation and Information Extraction
- Natural Language Interfaces and Dialogue Systems
- Translation and Machine Translation
- Multi-Lingual Processing
- Speech Processing
- Tools and Resources in NLP
- Corpus Linguistics
- Text mining
- Ontologies

These topics can be addressed from any of the following perspectives: full
automation by machines for machine (traditional NLP or Human Language
Technology), semi-automated processing, i.e. machine-mediated processing
(programs assisting people in their tasks), simulation of human cognitive
