Call For Papers


Natural Language in Computer Science (NLCS) is a workshop on the interface between computer science and linguistics, covering a wide range of topics connected to logic and the larger VSL. The overall theme is the two-way interplay between formal tools developed in logic, category theory, and theoretical computer science on the one hand, and natural language syntax and semantics on the other.

Important Dates

Submission deadline May 1, 2014 (EXTENDED!)
Notification two weeks after submission
Electronic Versions Due May 15, 2014
Workshop July 17-18, 2014
Aims and Scope

Formal tools coming from logic and related areas theory are important for natural language processing,especially for computational semantics. Moreover, work on these tools borrows heavily from all areas of theoretical computer science. In the other direction, applications having to do with natural language have inspired developments on the formal side. The NLCS workshop invites papers on both topics, as well as on the combination between logical methods and statistical methods.

Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

linguistic,computational and logical aspects of the interface between syntax and semantics
logical aspects of linguistic theories
logic for semantics of lexical items, sentences, discourse and dialog
formal tools in textual inference, such as logics for natural language inference
applications of category theory in semantics
linear logic in semantics
formal approaches to unifying data-driven (quantitative, statistical) and declarative (logical) approaches to semantics
natural language processing tools using logic
