The 7th INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING AND
COGNITIVE SCIENCE, http://www.iceis.org/Workshops/nlpcs/nlpcs2010-cfp.htm
8-9th June 2010, Funchal Madeira, Portugal

Co-Chairs : Bernadette SHARP (1) and Michael ZOCK (2)

-------------------
AIM OF THE WORKSHOP
-------------------
The aim of this workshop is to foster interactions among researchers and
practitioners in Natural Language Processing (NLP) working within the
paradigm of Cognitive Science. Research into NLP involves concepts and
methods from many fields including artificial intelligence, linguistics,
computational linguistics, statistics, computer science, and most
importantly cognitive science. Because it is impossible to cover all
aspects of NLP this workshop emphasises the contribution of cognitive
science to language processing, including conceptualisation,
representation, discourse processing, meaning construction, ontology
building, and text mining.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Cognitive and Psychological Models of NLP
- Computational Models of NLP
- Evolutionary NLP
- Situated (embodied) NLP
- Multimodality in speech / text processing
- Text Summarization and Information Extraction
- Natural Language Interfaces and Dialogue Systems
- Multi-Lingual Processing
- Pragmatics and NLP
- Speech Processing
- Tools and Resources in NLP
- Ontologies
- Text Mining
- Electronic Dictionaries
- Evaluation of NLP Systems

These topics can be addressed from any of the following perspectives:
full automation by machines for machine (traditional NLP or HLT),
semi-automated processing, i.e. machine-mediated processing (programs
assisting people in their tasks), simulation of human cognitive process.
