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 http://www.psy.cmu.edu/~cmcl/ CALL FOR PAPERS 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and language evolution in communication networks Submissions This call solicits full papers reporting original and unpublished research that combines cognitive modeling and computational linguistics.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 NAACL 2012 style files available at http://www.naaclhlt2012.org/conference/conference.php Contributions should be submitted in PDF via the submission site: http://www.psy.cmu.edu/~cmcl/submit 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. Important Dates Submission deadline: 20 March 2012 Notification of acceptance: 17 April 2012 Camera-ready versions due: 30 April 2012 Workshop: 7 June 2012 Workshop Chairs Roger Levy, Department of Linguistics, University of California at San Diego David Reitter, Department of Psychology, Carnegie Mellon University Program Committee Matthew Crocker Saarbrücken University Robert Daland UC Los Angeles Vera Demberg Saarbrücken University Amit Dubey University of Edinburgh Michael C.
