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.
