Semantic Spaces at the Intersection of NLP, Physics, and Cognitive Science

About

Semantic Spaces at the Intersection of NLP, Physics, and Cognitive Science (SemSpace2020) is the latest edition of a series of workshops that brings together research at the intersection of NLP, Physics, and Cognitive Science. Using the common ground of vector spaces, the workshop offers researchers in these areas an appropriate forum for presenting their uniquely motivated work and ideas. The interplay between the three disciplines will foster theoretically motivated approaches to understanding how meanings of words interact with each other in sentences and discourse via grammatical types, how they are determined by input from the world, and how word and sentence meanings interact logically.

Previous editions were held in 2019 (https://sites.google.com/view/semspace2019/home), as part of ESSLLI 2019, in 2018 (https://sites.google.com/view/capns2018/home) co-located with the International Symposium on Quantum Interactions 2018, and in 2016 (https://sites.google.com/site/semspworkshop/), co-located with the 13th International Conference on Quantum Physics and Logic (QPL2016) .

This year we are co-located with ESSLLI 2020 (https://www.esslli.eu/) and will share a special session with the Conference on Formal Grammar (http://fg.phil.hhu.de/2020/).
