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
- the computational psycholinguistics meeting at CogSci in Berkeley in 1997
- the Incremental Parsing workshop at ACL 2004
- 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.
