CALL FOR PAPERS - Extended Submission Deadline: March 18

Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics 2014 (CMCL-2014) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A workshop to be held June 26, 2014 at the Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) in Baltimore, Maryland, USA


Workshop Description -----------------------------

This workshop provides a venue for work in computational psycholinguistics: the computational and mathematical modeling of linguistic generalization, development, and processing. We invite contributions that apply methods from computational linguistics to problems in the cognitive modeling of any and all natural language abilities. The 2014 workshop follows in the tradition of earlier CMCL meetings at ACL 2010, ACL 2011, NAACL-HLT 2012, ACL 2013.

Scope and Topics ------------------------

The workshop invites a broad spectrum of work in the cognitive science of language, at all levels of analysis from sounds to discourse and on both learning and processing. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- incremental parsers for diverse grammar formalisms

- derivations of quantitative measures of comprehension difficulty, or

predictions regarding generalization in language learning

- stochastic models of factors encouraging one production or interpretation

over its competitors

- models of semantic/pragmatic interpretation, including psychologically

realistic notions of word meaning, phrase meaning, composition, and

pragmatic inference

- models and empirical analysis of the relationship between mechanistic

psycholinguistic principles and pragmatic or semantic adaptation

- models of human language acquisition and/or adaptation in a changing

linguistic environment

- models of linguistic information propagation and language change in

communication networks

- models of lexical acquisition, including phonology, morphology, and semantics

- psychologically motivated models of grammar induction or semantic learning

Submissions are especially welcomed that combine computational modeling work with empirical data (e.g., corpora or experiments) to test theoretical questions about the nature of human language acquisition, comprehension, and/or production.

Submissions -----------------

This call solicits full papers reporting original and unpublished research that combines cognitive modeling and computational linguistics. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the workshop and will be published in the workshop proceedings. They should emphasize obtained results rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results. A paper accepted for presentation at the workshop must not be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. If essentially identical papers are submitted to other conferences or workshops as well, this fact must be indicated at submission time. No submission should be longer than necessary, up to a maximum 8 pages plus two additional pages containing references.

To facilitate double-blind reviewing, submitted manuscripts should not include any identifying information about the authors.

Submissions must be formatted using ACL 2014 style files available at


Contributions should be submitted in PDF via the submission site:


The submission deadline is 11:59PM Pacific Time on March 18, 2014.
