Call for Abstracts

Date and Location:
NASLLI: July 11-15 2016, Rutgers University, New Jersey, US.

Submission Description
SaLMoM is a workshop of NASSLLI 2016: the 7th North American Summer School in Logic Language Information.  We invite submissions in the form of 2-3 page abstracts on topics relating statistical and logical models of natural language. This can be a summary of an already published paper or a new contribution.

On the statistical side, we welcome, for example, submissions on distributional and probabilistic semantics and vector space models of meaning. In this relation we encourage work that goes beyond subject-verb-object constructions and addresses logical and functional words such as coordinators, quantifiers, and prepositions.

On the logical side, we invite work on type-logical approaches such as multimodal extensions of categorial grammars in the logical and combinatorial traditions; calculi of discontinuity combining Concatenation and wrapping operations; hybrid type-logical grammars mixing Directional and non-directional modes; and continuation-based semantic approaches.

Submissions will be evaluated as to their potential for establishing meaningful links between the logical and statistical approaches.

Deadline:
April 30th 2016.
Extended to: May 15th 2016.
