Constraints and Language Processing

5th International Workshop on Constraints and Language Processing (CSLP2008)
August 11-15, 2008

organized as part of the European Summer School
on Logic, Language and Information ESSLLI 2008
(http://www.illc.uva.nl/ESSLLI2008/), 4-15 August, 2008 in Hamburg, Germany

Workshop Organizers:

Philippe Blache (Provence University, France)
Henning Christiansen (Roskilde University, Denmark), co-chair henning_at_ruc.dk
Veronica Dahl (Simon Fraser University, Canada)
Jørgen Villadsen (Technical University of Denmark), co-chair jv_at_imm.dtu.dk

Workshop Purpose:

The CSLP 2008 workshop addresses the question of
constraints and language processing from an
interdisciplinary perspective. Constraints are
widely used in linguistics, computer science, and
psychology. How they are used, however, varies
widely according to the research domain: natural
language processing, knowledge representation,
cognitive modelling, problem solving mechanisms,
etc. The purpose is to pursue a paradigm,
unifying the different approaches into a common
framework capable of explaining how constraints
play a role in representing, processing and
acquiring linguistic information, and this from a
formal, technical, and cognitive perspective.

Workshop Topics:

The topics include, but are not limited to,
constraint-based linguistic theories, constraints
in human language comprehension and production,
context modelling and discourse interpretation,
acquisition of constraints, probabilistic
constraint-based reasoning, constraint
satisfaction technologies and constraint logic programming.
