Semantic Spaces at the Intersection of NLP, Physics, and Cognitive Science
We are very happy to confirm speakers Jennifer Culbertson, University of Edinburgh, and Andrea E. Martin, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and Radboud University, Nijmegen. See Invited Speakers for details.
We will be going ahead with the workshop, either in an online format or in person if the situation allows.
Since ESSLLI 2020 has been cancelled, the dates and location may be subject to slight change.
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) .
