CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

'Towards a Formal Distributional Semantics' Workshop (TFDS) Hosted by the Tenth International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS) University of Potsdam, Germany March 19, 2013 http://clic.cimec.unitn.it/**roberto/IWCS-TFDS2013<http://clic.cimec.unitn.it/roberto/IWCS-TFDS2013>

The workshop aims to foster the integration of formal and distributional semantics, building on their complementary strengths. Its focus is on combining distributional representations with model-based theories in a way that gives formal semantics a better handle on lexical semantics, while still preserving the aspects of formal semantics that have made it useful as a description of meaning in natural languages. From model-based theories, we wish in particular to retain the tight syntax-semantics interface for phenomena such as quantification, scope, modification and semantic roles, the notions of truth and extension, and the modelling of inference, at both the levels of lexical items and propositions. More generally, the workshop is open to new ideas about aspects of meaning beyond the level of truth values, and on how distributional semantics may contribute to the notion of intension.
