Cognitive Aspects of Computational Language Learning and Processing (CogACLL)

                July 19, 2018
                Melbourne, Australia

     https://sites.google.com/view/cognitivews2018 <https://sites.google.com/view/cognitivews2018>

Deadline for Long Submissions: April 15, 2018 (11:59pm GMT -12)
Deadline for Short Paper Submissions and Demonstrations: April 22, 2018  (11:59pm GMT -12)   

The best papers will be invited for submission to a special issue of Journal on Natural Language Engineering. 

Invited Speaker: Prof. Robert Berwick (MIT, USA)

This workshop is endorsed by SIGNLL, the Special Interest Group on Natural Language Learning of the Association for Computational Linguistics.

This will be the eighth edition of related workshops, first held with ACL 2007, EACL 2009, EACL 2012 <https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fsites.google.com%2Fsite%2Feaclcogws%2F&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNHt1RG9N_oIbvH9jn6EEBzffBefag> , EACL 2014 <https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fsites.google.com%2Fsite%2Fcognitivews2014%2Fhome&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNFSUbZaVY1WgDwzm2Sif_wUNI1XrQ>, EMNLP 2015 <https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fsites.google.com%2Fsite%2Fcognitivews2015%2F&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNG_UkngFSUG2p3NxUbKsOX1tnx3dg>, ACL 2016 <https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fsites.google.com%2Fsite%2Fcognitivews2016%2F&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNF_QGYOd4zFijGikZoVIj5UKtWg0A> 
and as a standalone event in 2013 <https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fsites.google.com%2Fsite%2Flccmodels%2Fhome&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNHQdqfK2JZMc57-P_wMEoiXT6PxZw>. The workshops aim to be a forum for the interdisciplinary discussion of cognitive aspects of language acquisition, 
processing and loss in normal and clinical conditions and to draw together practitioners of  computational and cognitive communities to discuss common 
long term goals, promote knowledge and resource sharing and possible collaborations  between the communities. It has relevance for cognitive sciences 
work in the fields of speech and language processing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychology, etc. 
Papers are invited on, but not limited to, the following topics:

	• Computational learning theory and analysis of language learning and organization
	• Computational models of first, second and bilingual language acquisition
	• Computational models of sentences and discourse processing
	• Computational modeling of factors that influence language acquisition and use
	• Physiologically realistic models linking language learning and use with specific brain regions
	• Computational models of the evolution of language
	• Resources and tools for investigating models of human language processes
	• Empirical and theoretical comparisons of the learning environment and its impact on language processes
	• Cognitively oriented neural network and Bayesian models of language processes
	• Computational methods for acquiring various linguistic information (related to speech, lexicon, syntax and semantics) and 
          relevance to research on human language acquisition
	• Investigations and comparisons of supervised, unsupervised and weakly-supervised methods for learning


We invite three different submission modalities:

* Regular long papers (8 content pages + 1 page for references):
  Long papers should report on original, solid and finished research
  including new experimental results, resources and/or techniques.

* Regular short papers (4 content pages + 1 page for references):
  Short papers should report on small experiments, focused contributions,
  ongoing research, negative results and/or philosophical discussion.

* Demonstration (2 pages): Resource and System demonstration papers should
  describe and document the demonstrated system or resources. We
  encourage the demonstration of both early research prototypes and
  mature systems, that will be presented in a separate demo session. 

Submission and reviewing will be electronic, managed by the START system:

       https://www.softconf.com/acl2018/CogCL/ <https://www.softconf.com/acl2018/CogCL/>  

Submissions must be uploaded onto the START system by the submission deadlines:

     Long Papers: April  15, 2018 (11:59pm GMT -12 hours)
     Short Papers and Demonstrations: April  22, 2018 (11:59pm GMT -12 hours)
