Call For Papers

Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics (CMCL)


and TopiCS special issue _Models of Language Comprehension_





A workshop to be held


July 15th, 2010


following the Association for Computational Linguistics meeting


in Uppsala, Sweden





http://cmcl.ling.cornell.edu








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


three previous meetings





(1) the computational psycholinguistics meeting at CogSci in Berkeley in 1997


(2) the thematic session on computational psycholinguistics at ACL in 1999


(3) the Incremental Parsing workshop at ACL 2004





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


* derivations of comprehension difficulty predictions, or generalization predictions in language learning


* stochastic models of factors encouraging one production or interpretation over its competitors


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








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This call solicits 8-page, full papers reporting original and unpublished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 2010 style files available at





http://www.acl2010.org/authors.html





Contributions should be submitted in PDF via the submission site:





https://www.softconf.com/acl2010/CogModCL





The submission deadline is 11:59PM Eastern Time on April 5th, 2010.








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.








Student Paper Award





Submissions should be marked to indicate whether the first author is pre-doctoral or not.


Papers in this category are eligible for the CMCL Student Paper Award.


This $250 award is sponsored by the Cognitive Science Society.








Important Dates





Submission deadline: April 5, 2010


Notification of acceptance: May 6, 2010


Camera-ready versions due: May 16, 2010


Workshop: July 15, 2010, following ACL 2010
