Scope of the workshop
----------------------------------------

The aim of this workshop is to foster interactions among researchers and
practitioners in Natural Language Processing (NLP) by taking a Cognitive
Science perspective.

What characterizes this kind of approach is the fact that NLP is considered
from various viewpoints (linguistics, psychology, statistics, computer
science, artificial intelligence), and that a deliberate effort is made to
reconcile or integrate these viewpoints into a coherent whole.

We believe that this is necessary, as the modeling of the process is simply
too complex to be addressed by a single discipline. No matter whether we
deal with a natural system (people), an artificial system (computers) or a
combination of both (interactive NLP), systems rely on many types of very
different knowledge sources. Hence, strategies vary considerably depending
on the person (novice, expert), on the available knowledge (internal and
external), and on the nature of the information processor : man, machine or
both (man-machine communication, interactive NLP).

This being so, any of the following aspects are welcomed : structure,
representation and processing of information by different agents (natural,
artificial or both) and in different communication modes.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Ontologies
- Text mining
- Conceptualisation
- Meaning construction
- Electronic Dictionaries
- Evolutionary NLP
- Discourse processing
- Social cognition of language
- Multi-Lingual Processing
- Speech Processing
- Pragmatics and NLP
- Tools and Resources in NLP
- Evaluation of NLP Systems
- Embodied and situated NLP
- Computational Models of NLP
- Emotion and language processing
- Translation and Machine Translation
- Multimodality in speech / text processing
- Cognitive and Psychological Models of NLP
- Text Summarization and Information Extraction
- Natural Language Interfaces and Dialogue Systems
