Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics (CMCL-2012)

A workshop to be held June 7, 2012 at the North American
Association for Computational Linguistics meeting (NAACL-HLT) in
Montreal, Quebec



Workshop Description

This workshop provides a venue for work in computational
psycholinguistics. ACL Lifetime Achievement Award recipient
Martin Kay described this topic as "build[ing] models of language
that reflect in some interesting way on the ways in which people
use language." The 2012 workshop follows in the tradition of
several previous meetings  the computational psycholinguistics
meeting at CogSci in Berkeley in 1997  the Incremental Parsing
workshop at ACL 2004  the first two CMCL workshops at ACL 2010
and ACL 2011

in inviting contributions that apply methods from computational
linguistics to problems in the cognitive modeling of any and all
natural language abilities. 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. Topics include, but are not limited to

         incremental parsers for diverse grammar formalisms 
        derivations of comprehension difficulty predictions, or
        predictions regarding generalization in language learning
         stochastic models of factors encouraging one production
        or interpretation over its competitors  models of
        semantic interpretation, including psychologically
        realistic notions of word meaning, phrase meaning, and
        composition  models and empirical analysis of the
        relationship between mechanistic psycholinguistic
        principles and pragmatic or semantic adaptation, usually
        in dialogue  models of human language acquisition 
        models of linguistic information propagation and language
        evolution in communication networks


This call solicits full papers reporting original and unpublished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 NAACL 2012 style files
available at


Contributions should be submitted in PDF via the submission site:


The submission deadline is 11:59PM Eastern Time on March 20,
2012. Best Student Paper

The best paper whose first author is a student will receive the
Best Student Paper award. Publication

All accepted CMCL papers will be published in the workshop
proceedings as is customary at ACL conferences.
