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


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


This call solicits 8-page, full papers reporting original and unpublished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

Contributions should be submitted in PDF via the submission site:

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.
