CMCL has concluded!

CMCL happened yesterday and by all accounts it was a great success: excellent talks about high-quality work, outstanding discussion, and an overall enthusiasm that the future of computational psycholinguistics is very bright.

A special thanks to Sharon Goldwater and Rick Lewis for bookending the workshop with two outstanding talks.

Congratulations as well to Felix Hill, Douwe Kiela and Anna Korhonen whose paper Concreteness and Corpora: A Theoretical and Practical Study won the Best Student Paper award, generously sponsored by the Cognitive Science Society.

This year’s complete CMCL proceedings can be found here.

Thanks so much once more to all authors and participants, to the program committee, to the Association for Computational Linguistics for its organizational support of the workshop, and to funding assistance from the Cognitive Science Society and the Cluster of Excellence on“Multimodal Computing and Interaction”.  We look forward to seeing you all at next year’s CMCL!

Welcome to CMCL 2013

Welcome to Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics (CMCL) 2013, a one-day workshop to be held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL), August 4-9 in Sofia, Bulgaria! This workshop provides a venue for work in computational psycholinguistics. ACL Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Martin Kay described this topic as “build[ing] models of language that reflect in some interesting way on the ways in which people use language.” The 2012 workshop follows in the tradition of several previous meetings

  1.  the computational psycholinguistics meeting at CogSci in Berkeley in 1997
  2.  the Incremental Parsing workshop at ACL 2004
  3.  the first three CMCL workshops at ACL 2010, ACL 2011, and NAACL-HLT 2012

in inviting contributions that apply methods from computational linguistics to problems in the cognitive modeling of any and all natural language abilities.

CMCL 2013 is being organized by Vera Demberg and Roger Levy.
