======================================================== Constraint Solving and Language Processing - CSLP 2012 - Seventh International Workshop Universite d'Orleans, Orleans, France September 13-14, 2012 http://www.univ-orleans.fr/lifo/evenements/CSLP2012/ ========================================================

INTRODUCTION ============

The Constraint Solving and Language Processing (CSLP) workshop considers the role of constraints in the representation of language and the implementation of language processing from an interdisciplinary perspective. This theme should be interpreted inclusively: contributions from linguistics, computer science, psycholinguistics and related areas are welcome, and an interdisciplinary perspective is of particular interest.

Constraints are widely used in linguistics, computer science, and psychology. How they are used, however, varies widely according to the research domain: knowledge representation, cognitive modelling, problem solving mechanisms, etc. These different perspectives are complementary, each one adding a piece to the puzzle. For example, linguistics proposes in-depth descriptions implementing constraints in order to filter out structures by means of description languages, constraint ranking, etc. The constraint programming paradigm, on the other hand, shows that constraints have to be taken as a systematic whole and can thus play a role in building the structures (or can even replace structures). Finally, psycholinguistics experiment have been made, investigating the role of constraint systems for cognitive processes in comprehension and production, as well as addressing how they can be acquired.

TOPICS ======

CSLP is open to submissions on topics including, but not limited to:

* Constraints in human language comprehension and production

* Context modelling and discourse interpretation

* Acquisition of constraints

* Constraints and learning

* Cross-theoretical view of the notion of constraint

* New advances in constraint-based linguistic theories

* Constraint satisfaction (CS) technologies for NLP

* Linguistic analysis and linguistic theories biased towards CS or

constraint logic programming (CLP)

* Application of CS or CLP for NLP

* CS and CLP for other than textual or spoken languages, e.g., sign

languages and biological, multimodal human-computer interaction,

visual languages

* Probabilistic constraint-based reasoning for NLP and context


PREVIOUS EDITIONS =================

Six CSLP workshops have been organized in the past in: Karlsruhe, Germany (2011), Hamburg, Germany (2008), Roskilde, Denmark (2007), Sydney, Australia (2006), Sitges, Spain (2005), Roskilde, Denmark (2004).

VENUE =====

CSLP 2012 will take place at LIFO, the Computer Science laboratory of the University of Orleans, France. Orleans is located in the northern bend of the Loire river, it belongs to the Vallee de la Loire sector, which was in 2000 inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Orleans is located 120 kilometers south-west of Paris, it is bordered to the north by the Beauce region and the national forest of Orleans (500 km2), and by the Sologne region to the south.

IMPORTANT DATES ===============

Submission Deadline: June 10, 2012 Notification: August 1st, 2012 Camera-ready Version: September 1st, 2012

Workshop Dates: September 13-14, 2012

SUBMISSIONS ===========

Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files and be prepared using the Springer LNAI/LNCS format. Detailed formatting instructions can be found at: http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0

Papers should present original, unpublished work. Simultaneous submission to other venues with published proceedings is prohibited. CSLP accepts two kinds of submissions:

- full papers (12 pages including references) reporting completed,

significant research, - short papers (6 pages including references) reporting ongoing

work and partial results.

Each submission will be reviewed by three program committee members. Accepted long papers will be presented within 20 minutes talks plus 10 minutes for questions. Accepted short papers will be presented within 10 minutes talks plus 5 minutes for questions. Both paper types will be published in the workshop proceedings.

Since reviewing will be blind, the submission should not include the authors' names and affiliations. Other identifying information such as obvious self-references (e.g., "We showed in [12] ...") and financial or personal acknowledgements should be omitted in the submitted papers whenever feasible.

Papers have to be submitted via the easychair conference management system using the following link:


A volume at an international publisher will be considered for selected and revised papers, if number and quality of submissions permits.

REGISTRATION ============

Registration is now open, by filling the form available at http://www.univ-orleans.fr/lifo/evenements/CSLP2012/inscription.php

The registration fees (50 EUR for students and 100 EUR for researchers until August, 7th) cover the electronic proceedings (USB stick), the participation to the coffee breaks, the lunches, the banquet, and the social event (visit of a Castle of the Vallee de la Loire).
