CALL FOR PAPERS: Constraint Solving and Language Processing, 17-18 Jun 2014, Toulouse, FRANCE

The CSLP 2014 workshop considers the role of constraints in the representation of language and the 
implementation of language processing from an interdisciplinary point of view. This theme should 
be interpreted inclusively: contributions from linguistics, computer science, psycholinguistics 
and related areas are welcome, and an interdisciplinary perspective is of particular interest.

Constraints are widely used in linguistics, computer science, and psychology. How they are used, 
however, varies widely according to the research domain: knowledge representation, cognitive 
modelling, problem solving mechanisms, etc. These different perspectives are complementary, each 
one adding a piece to the puzzle. For example, linguistics proposes in-depth descriptions 
implementing constraints in order to filter out structures by means of description languages, 
constraint ranking, etc. The constraint programming paradigm, on the other hand, shows that 
constraints have to be taken as a systematic whole and can thus play a role in building the 
structures (or can even replace structures), providing effective methods for aspects of NLP. 
Finally, psycholinguistics experiment have been made, investigating the role of constraint 
systems for cognitive processes in comprehension and production, as well as addressing how they 
can be acquired.

CSLP is open to submissions on topics including, but not limited to:
- Constraints in human language comprehension and production
- Context modelling and discourse interpretation
- Acquisition of constraints
- Constraints and learning
- Cross-theoretical view of the notion of constraint
- New advances in constraint-based linguistic theories
- Constraint satisfaction (CS) technologies for NLP
- Linguistic analysis and linguistic theories biased towards CS
   or constraint logic programming (CLP)
- Application of CS or CLP for NLP
- CS and CLP for other than textual or spoken languages, e.g., sign languages and
   biological, multimodal human-computer interaction, visual languages
- Probabilistic constraint-based reasoning for NLP and context comprehension

CSLP 2014 accepts two kinds of submissions:
- full papers (12 pages including references) reporting completed, significant research,
- short papers (6 pages including references) reporting ongoing work and partial results.

Deadline is April 24, 2014.
See all important dates.

Proceedings will be published after the workshop as a volume of the FoLLI subline of Lecture 
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer. Preliminary proceedings with accepted papers will 
be available at the workshop. Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files and be prepared 
using the Springer LNAI/LNCS format. See all details 

Program co-chairs:
   Leonor Becerra-Bonache, Saint-Etienne, France
   Henning Christiansen, Roskilde, Denmark
