Call for Abstracts

Advances in Distributional Semantics Workshop

Co-located with the 11th International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS 2015)

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

The Workshop on Advances in Distributional Semantics covers a broad range of areas aimed at bringing together researchers involved in all aspects of the field of distributional semantics. We invite the submission of abstracts. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

* Phrase and sentence-level distributional representations * The use of syntax in distributional compositional models * Type-logical and categorial models of grammar in relation to distributional semantics * Distributional semantic models in relation to formal semantics * Machine learning technqiues for distributional semantics, including e.g. neural networks and probabilistic representations * The application of quantum theory to distributional semantics * Uses of distributional representations in NLP tasks and applications * Multi-modal learning for distributional representations, including e.g. image representations

INVITED SPEAKERS

* Katrin Erk (University of Texas at Austin) * Zoubin Ghahramani (University of Cambridge) * Michael Moortgat (Utrecht University) * Hinrich Schuetze (University of Munich) * Paul Smolensky (Johns Hopkins University)
