Call For Papers

LACL 2016 20th anniversary edition
Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics
LORIA Nancy, December 5-7 2016


LACL'2016 is the 20th anniversary of the international conference on
Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics that was launched in
Nancy in 1996. The scope of this conference is the use of type
theoretic, proof theoretic and model theoretic methods for describing
natural language syntax, semantics and pragmatics as well as the
implementation of natural language processing software relying on
logical formalisation. As 20 years ago LACL will also take place at
Loria in Nancy.


Computer scientists, linguists, mathematicians and philosophers are
invited to present their work on the use of logical methods in
computational linguistics and natural language processing, in natural
language analysis, generation or acquisition.

Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:

- Logical foundation of syntactic formalisms, in particular categorial
grammars and other type theoretic grammars, parsing as deduction,
model theoretic syntax;
- Logical frameworks for lexical semantics;
- Logical semantics of sentences, discourse and dialogue;
- Applications of these logical frameworks to natural language
processing tasks (automated analysis, generation, acquisition,
textual inference);
- Applications of the logical formalisation of language faculty to
cognitive sciences.

There will be two kinds of papers:
- Regular (long) papers between 12 and 16 pages --- authors willing to
submit lengthier papers should contact the committee.
- Short papers (work in progress, position papers) between 4 and 8

It is expected that each accepted paper be presented at the meeting by
one of its authors.
