10th International Workshop on Natural Language Processing and
Cognitive Science

NLPCS 2013

15-16th October 2013, Marseille, France

(17th October 2013: Tutorials, to be confirmed)



Bernadette Sharp (Staffordshire University, United Kingdom,

and Michael Zock (CNRS-LIF, Aix-Marseille université, France,

SCOPE of the workshop

The aim of this workshop is to foster interactions among
researchers and practitioners in Natural Language Processing
(NLP) by taking a Cognitive Science perspective. Given the
breadth of the topic, we welcome reports on work from many
perspectives, including but not limited to computational
linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology, language
learning, artificial intelligence, etc.

Hence, topics of interest include, without being limited to:

 Computational Models of NLP

 Cognitive and Psychological Models of NLP

 Emotion and Language Processing

 Evolutionary NLP

 Discourse Processing

 Pragmatics and NLP

 Social Cognition of Language

 Embodied and Situated NLP

 Multimodality in Speech / Text Processing

 Text Summarisation and Information Extraction

 Natural Language Interfaces and Dialogue Systems

 Translation and Machine Translation

 Multi-Lingual Processing

 Speech Processing

 Tools and Resources in NLP

 Corpus Linguistics

 Text mining


These topics can be addressed from any of the following
perspectives: full automation by machines for machine
(traditional NLP or Human Language Technology), semi-automated
processing, i.e. machine-mediated processing (programs assisting
people in their tasks), simulation of human cognitive process.
