CALL FOR PARTICIPATION ====================== Workshop on Semantic Spaces at the Intersection of NLP, Physics and Cognitive Science Co-located with QPL-2016

Date: 11th June 2016, 09:30-18:00 Place: University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland McCance Building, Room 319

Website: https://sites.google.com/site/semspworkshop General enquiries: slpcs2016 at easychair.org

INVITED SPEAKERS ---------------- * Hans Briegel, University of Innsbruck * Peter Gärdenfors, University of Lund * Dominic Widdows, Microsoft

SHORT DESCRIPTION ----------------- Exploiting the common ground provided by the concept of a vector space, the workshop aims to bring together researchers working at the intersection of NLP, cognitive science, and physics, offering to them an appropriate forum for presenting their uniquely motivated work and ideas. The interplay between these three disciplines will foster theoretically motivated approaches to understanding how meanings of words interact with each other in sentences and discourse, how diagrammatic reasoning depicts and simplifies this interaction, how language models are determined by input from the world, and how word and sentence meanings interact logically.

CONTRIBUTED LONG TALKS ---------------------- * Daniela Ashoush and Bob Coecke. Dual density operators and

natural language meaning * Josef Bolt, Bob Coecke, Fabrizio Genovese, Martha Lewis,

Dan Marsden and Robin Piedeleu. Interacting Conceptual Spaces * Dimitri Kartsaklis. Coordination in Categorical Compositional

Distributional Semantics * Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh. Quantifier Scope in Categorical Compositional

Distributional Semantics * William Zeng and Bob Coecke. Quantum algorithms for compositional

natural language processing

CONTRIBUTED SHORT TALKS ----------------------- * Stefano Gogioso. A corpus-based toy model for DisCoCat * Stephen McGregor, Matthew Purver and Geraint Wiggins.

Words, Concepts, and the Geometry of Analogy * John van der Wetering. Entailment Relations on Distributions

REGISTRATION ------------ The registration fee is GBP 10. If you also want to attend QPL 2016, the total fee is GBP 50. Registration is now open (the system will give you the option to select if you want to attend only the workshop or QPL + workshop):
