11th International Workshop on Natural Language Processing and Cognitive Science

NLPCS 2014

27-29th October 2014, Venice, Italy

The workshop will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from the fields of natural language processing, computational linguistics and cognitive science to their ideas and investigations. Given the breadth of the topic, we welcome papers from many perspectives, including but not limited to computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology, language learning, artificial intelligence, etc.
The aim of this workshop is to foster interactions among researchers and practitioners in Natural Language Processing (NLP) by taking a Cognitive Science perspective.
Hence, topics of interest include, but are not 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), and simulation of human cognitive process.
