Sixth Workshop on
Natural Language and Computer Science

NLCS '19

  May 24, 2019

Submission Deadline Extended to March 10

University of Gothenburg

Gothenburg, Sweden

A workshop held as part of the The 13th International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS 2019) .

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


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


Please submit an abstract by March 1 to the EasyChair page of IWCS, being sure to chose the track W5: NLCS - Natural Language and Computer Science 6.

Extended abstracts of up to 10 pages may be submitted to the same EasyChair page by March 7.
