AAAI Spring Symposium, Stanford 27-29 March 2017

Computational Construction Grammar and Natural Language Understanding

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

This symposium is primarily targeting researchers in natural language processing/understanding and computational linguistics, but will have broader appeal to the larger AI community, specifically researchers in knowledge representation, man-machine interaction, and machine learning. The symposium focuses on recent TECHNICAL advances in computational formalisms for construction grammar, machine learning of construction grammar, and use of construction grammar in natural language understanding and production. The presentation and demonstration of working systems is highly encouraged.

Areas of interest include:

1. What unifies constructional approaches to language?

2. Formalisms and implementations of construction grammar (CxG)

3. Constructicons, corpora annotated for CxG, and statistical construction learning.

4. Construction grammar learning by physical robots.

5. Deep Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and Production.

6. Relations of CxG to the brain, development, and evolution.

7. Application efforts.

Paper submissions may take the form of long papers (4-8 pages in AAAI format, including references) for oral presentation or short papers (up to 4 pages in AAAI format, including references) for poster presentation. Evidence of a working implementation, e.g. through a web-accessible demonstration, is highly encouraged. Individual submissions for oral or short papers are due by OCTOBER 28 and authors will be notified by November 29. There will be one or more hands-on interactive sessions where participants can show implemented CxG systems.

Suggestions for panels may be submitted by October 1 to either steels@arti.vub.ac.be or feldman@icsi.berkeley.edu

All papers for the symposium will be collected and made into an AAAI technical report, which will be distributed to attendees electronically and included in the AAAI Digital Library.

Symposium conveners: Jerome Feldman and Luc Steels

Additional members of program committee: Katrien Beuls, Adele Goldberg and Nancy Chang.

  1. This is a appropriate weblog for everyone who is would like to find out about this topic. You already know much its virtually hard to argue to you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You actually put a whole new spin with a topic thats been revealed for decades. Great stuff, just excellent!

  3. The idea of a drug being able to do that is never really discussed nor is the idea of addiction, what it means for people around you, all the things that are usually brought up in a drug film.

  4. I simply couldn’t go away your website before suggesting that I actually enjoyed the standard information an individual provide on your visitors? Is gonna be back frequently in order to inspect new posts.

  5. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog.

    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

  6. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays.
