LACL 2011

Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics

June 29th, 30th and July 1st

LIRMM, Montpellier, France

http://lacl.gforge.inria.fr


PRESENTATION

LACL'2011 is the 6th edition of a series of international conferences
on logical and formal methods in computational linguistics. It
addresses in particular the use of type theoretic, proof theoretic and
model theoretic methods for describing natural language syntax and
semantics, as well as the implementation of natural language
processing software relying on such models. It will be held at the
LIRMM, Montpellier, France. It will be co-located with TALN, the
conference of the French association for NLP (ATALA).

Topics:

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.

   * logical foundation of syntactic formalisms
         o categorial grammars
         o minimalist grammars
         o dependency grammars
         o tree adjoining grammars
         o model theoretic syntax
         o formal language theory for natural language processing
         o data-driven approaches
   * logic for semantics of lexical items, sentences, discourse and dialog
         o discourse theories
         o Montague semantics
         o compositionality
         o dynamic logics
         o game semantics
         o situation semantics
         o generative lexicon
	  o categorical semantics
   * applications of these models to natural language processing
         o software for natural language analysis
         o software for acquiring linguistic resources
         o software for natural language generation
         o software for information extraction
	  o inference tasks
         o evaluation
         o scalability
