Dear all,


very happy to announce the workshop on “Computational approaches in language
and music cognition research” taking place on August 30th and 31st, 2019 at
the University of Cologne, Germany.

Investigating language and music in the field of cognitive science means
studying them as (computational) neurocognitive systems, i.e., information
processing systems in the mind/brain.


Thus, language and music cognition research deals with the following

-         What is computed in the mind/brain and why?

-         How is a particular computation realized in terms of algorithms or
neural implementation?


Formal-mathematical theory of language and music mainly contributed to the
former question, while computer simulations of cognitive and neural
processes rather tackled the latter question. The current workshop discusses
different computational approaches and aims at clarifying the role of
computational modelling to advance mechanistic explanations to language and
music cognition.


The topics of the workshop are:

-         Computational and conceptual neurocognitive models of language and
music processing

-         Models of interaction and situated music and language cognition

-         Computational music theory and computational linguistics


Overall, this workshop also aims at fostering computational thinking as a
core competence enabling interdisciplinary communication and welcomes
students and  researchers interested in modelling cognition of music and
