Call for papers

12th International Workshop on Natural Language Processing and Cognitive Science
NLPCS 2015

22-24 September 2015
Kraków, Poland


Scope of the workshop
The workshop will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from the fields of natural language processing, computational linguistics and cognitive science to their ideas and investigations. Given the breadth of the topic, we welcome papers from many perspectives, including but not limited to computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology, language learning, artificial intelligence, and in particular cognitive neuroscience.

The aim of this workshop is to foster interactions among researchers and practitioners in Natural Language Processing (NLP) by taking a Cognitive Science perspective and learning from recent advances in Cognitive Neuroscience, Cognitive Linguistics and Neurolinguistics.

Hence, topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Cognitive and Psychological Models of NLP
  • Cognitive Neuroscience of Language
  • Computational Models of NLP
  • Computational Models in Neuroscience
  • Corpus Linguistics
  • Discourse Processing
  • Emotion and Language Processing
  • Evolutionary NLP
  • Multi-Lingual Processing
  • Multimodality in Speech / Text Processing
  • Natural Language Interfaces and Dialogue Systems
  • Neural bases of Language
  • Pragmatics and NLP
  • Speech Processing
  • Social Cognition of Language
  • Text Mining
  • Text Summarisation and Information Extraction
  • Tools and Resources in NLP
  • Translation and Machine Translation

Important dates

  • Paper Submission: 25 April 2015 (extended)
