Fifth Workshop on
Natural Language and Computer Science

NLCS '18

  July 7, 2018

Oxford University

Oxford, UK

Abstracts of the talks at NLCS'18 may be found here.

A workshop affiliated with Federated Logic Conference (FLoC) 2018

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

We are grateful to Jesus College, Oxford, for their support of our workshop.


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


Extended abstracts of up to 10 pages may be submitted via Easychair.
