The Workshop on Language, Cognition and Computational Models will be held in Paris at Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) and at the Institut des Systèmes Complexes de Paris-Ile de France (ISC-PIF), on May 28th and 29th 2013.
The goal of this event is to provide a venue for the multidisciplinary discussion of theoretical and practical research for computational models of language and cognition. The event centers around recent advances on computational models for language acquisition, processing and evolution.
The first day will mainly address language evolution and some of the computational models that have been proposed to investigate possible avenues for this phenomenon. The second day will address more varied issues, ranging from the origins of language to recent trends in machine translation. All talks will address key questions dealing with cognitive, formal and/or computational issues related to language evolution and/or language processing.
The event is open to anyone interested in the topic and registration is free of charge, but to help with the planning of the eventpeople who plan to attend are kindly requested to register preferably by May 21st. Please notice that the Deadline has been extended.
