*Final Call For Papers*
Submissions are now due March 4, 2019, UTC-12.

*Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics (CMCL) 2019*

cmcl2019 at gmail.com

*Workshop Description*
Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics (CMCL) 2019 is a one-day
workshop held in conjunction with the Annual Conference of the North
American chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL),
Minneapolis, June 2-7 2019. The goal of CMCL is providing a venue for
computational research on cognitive theories of language processing,
representation and acquisition. The 2019 workshop follows in the tradition
of earlier meetings at ACL 2010, ACL 2011, NAACL-HLT 2012, ACL 2013, ACL
2014, NAACL 2015, EACL 2017, and LSA 2018.

*Scope and Topics*
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Stochastic models of factors influencing a speaker’s production or
comprehension decisions
Models of semantic interpretation, including psychologically realistic
notions of word and phrase meaning and composition
Incremental parsers for diverse grammar formalisms and their psychological
Models of speaker-specific linguistic adaptation and/or generalization
Models of first and second language acquisition and bilingual language
Behavioral tasks for better understanding neural models of linguistic
Models and empirical analysis of the relationship between mechanistic
psycholinguistic principles and pragmatics or semantics
Models of lexical acquisition, including phonology, morphology, and
Psychologically motivated models of grammar induction
Psychologically plausible models of lexical or conceptual representations
Models of language disorders, such as aphasia, dyslexia, or dysgraphia
Behavioral datasets or resources for modeling language processing or
production in languages other than English
Models of language comprehension difficulty
Models of language learning and generalization
Models of linguistic information propagation and language evolution in
Network science and language processing

*Workshop Submissions*
We accept three categories of papers: regular workshop papers, extended
abstracts and cross-submissions. Only regular workshop papers will be
included in the proceedings as archival publications. All submissions
should be in PDF format and made through the Softconf website:
https://www.softconf.com/naacl2019/cmcl/. To facilitate double-blind
reviewing, submitted manuscripts should not include any identifying
information about the authors. Submissions with associated preprints (e.g.
ArXiv) will be considered.

Submissions must be formatted using NAACL 2019 templates, available at:
https://naacl2019.org/calls/papers/. If essentially identical papers are
submitted to multiple conferences / workshops, the authors are asked to
indicate this fact at submission time.

Regular Submissions Papers can be either full (8 pages of content +
references) or short papers (4 pages + references) reporting original and
unpublished research that combines cognitive modeling and computational
linguistics. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the workshop
(oral presentation or poster) and will be published in the workshop

Extended Abstracts (from 2 to 4 pages + references) describe preliminary
work or results that have not been published before. Accepted abstracts
will be presented as posters, but will not be included in the workshop

We will also accept cross-submissions (from 2 to 4 pages + references) for
papers on related topics that have already appeared in a non-NLP venue
(e.g. CogSci). These papers will be presented as posters, but will not be
included in the proceedings. Interested authors are asked to add a note on
the original venue in the submission.

*Dual Submission Policy (only for Regular Workshop Papers)*
If a workshop paper has been submitted elsewhere, the authors have to
declare it a submission time. Papers to be presented at CMCL 2019 must be
withdrawn from other venues.

*Important Dates*

*Submission deadline (extended): March 4, 2019 (11.59pm, UTC-12h)*Notification
of acceptance: March 27, 2019
