             CogACLL 2018 Call For Short Papers and Demonstrations
                     ACL 2018 Workshop on
Cognitive Aspects of Computational Language Learning and Processing (CogACLL)

              July 19, 2018
              Melbourne, Australia

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 , EACL 2014, EMNLP 2015, ACL 2016  and as a standalone event in 2013. 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 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:
