Subject: [Call for Papers: Cognitive Modeling and ComputationalLinguistics

Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics (CMCL)
and TopiCS special issue Models of Language Comprehension

A workshop to be held June 23, 2011 at the Association for
Computational Linguistics meeting in Portland, Oregon

         http://www.psy.cmu.edu/~cmcl/

CALL FOR PAPERS

Workshop Description

This workshop provides a venue for work in computational
psycholinguistics.  ACL Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Martin
Kay described this topic as "build[ing] models of language that
reflect in some interesting way, on the ways in which people use
language." The 2010 workshop follows in the tradition of several
previous meetings

  (1) the computational psycholinguistics meeting at CogSci in
      Berkeley in 1997
  (2) the Incremental Parsing workshop at ACL 2004
  (3) the first CMCL workshop at ACL 2010

in inviting contributions that apply methods from computational
linguistics to problems in the cognitive modeling of any and all
natural language abilities.

Scope and Topics

The workshop invites a broad spectrum of work in the cognitive science
of language, at all levels of analysis from sounds to
discourse. Topics include, but are not limited to

* incremental parsers for diverse grammar formalisms; models of
comprehension difficulty derived from such parsers

* models of factors favoring particular productions or interpretations
over their competitors

* models of semantic interpretation, including psychologically
realistic notions of word and phrase meaning

* models of human language acquisition, including the prediction of
generalizations and time course in acquisition

* applications of cognitive models of language, e.g., in tutoring
systems, human evaluation, clinical and cognitive neuroscience
settings

Submissions

This call solicits 8-page, full papers reporting original and
unpublished research that combines cognitive modeling and
computational linguistics.  Accepted papers are expected to be
presented at the workshop and will be published in the workshop
proceedings. They should emphasize obtained results rather than
intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of
the reported results.  A paper accepted for presentation at the
workshop must not be presented or have been presented at any other
meeting with publicly available proceedings.  If essentially identical
papers are submitted to other conferences or workshops as well, this
fact must be indicated at submission time.

To facilitate double-blind reviewing, submitted paper should not
include any identifying information about the authors.

Submissions must be formatted using ACL 2011 style files available at

         http://www.acl2011.org/latex/
         http://www.acl2011.org/word/

Contributions should be submitted in PDF via the submission site:

         https://www.softconf.com/acl2011/CogModCL

The submission deadline is 11:59PM Eastern Time on April 01, 2011.

Pathway to Journal Publication

All accepted CMCL papers will be published in the workshop proceedings
as is customary at ACL. However, CMCL presenters whose work holds
broad interest for the wider cognitive science community will be
encouraged to prepare extended versions of their papers (16 pages in
APA format). If approved by a second round of reviewing, these
extended papers will appear in a forthcoming issue of TopiCS, a
Journal of the Cognitive Science Society, entitled entitled "Models of
Language Comprehension".  These expanded papers will need to be
substantially adapted to address the broader TopiCS readership. The
Program Committee will be assisted by additional experts, as needed,
to apply this and other review criteria.
