2nd Workshop on Natural Language Processing and Automated Reasoning (NLPAR 2015)

Collocated with the 13th International Conference on Logic Programming and
Nonmonotonic Reasoning 2015 in Lexington, Kentucky, USA, September 27-30, 2015.


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
logical inference 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. This edition will feature an invited talk by Jerry Hobbs,
the winner of the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award of the Association of
Computational Linguistics, who has been doing pioneering research on the
interface between natural language, logical inference, and common sense
knowledge over the past 40 years.

As submissions to this workshop, theoretical results, reports about systems
and experiments, and work that combines logical inference 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 2015 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


* Paper submission: June 22, 2015
* Notification: July 27, 2015
* Final version: August 17, 2015
