LACL 2011 at LIRMM, Montpellier, France

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
