A workshop affiliated with the joint meeting of Computer Science Logic and Logic in Computer Science 2014

Endorsed by the Association for Computational Linguistics Special Interest Group on Computational Semantics.

Please also see the VSL page for NLCS'14.


Formal tools coming from logic and category theory are important in both natural language semantics and in computational semantics. Moreover, work on these tools borrows heavily from all areas of theoretical computer science. In the other direction, applications having to do with natural language has inspired developments on the formal side. The workshop invites papers on both topics. Specific topics includes, but are not limited to:

  • logic for semantics of lexical items, sentences, discourse and dialog
  • continuations in natural language semantics
  • formal tools in textual inference, such as logics for natural language inference
  • applications of category theory in semantics
  • linear logic in semantics
  • formal approaches to unifying data-driven and declarative approaches to semantics

Invited Speakers:

  • Anne Abeillé, Université Paris Diderot
  • Aarne Ranta, Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg
  • Laure Vieu, Université Paul Sabatier
