New: Final Program & Online Proceedings

Part of the

European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI 2008)
Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg, Germany, 4-15 August 2008

The CSLP 2008 workshop addresses the question of constraints and language processing from an interdisciplinary perspective. Constraints are widely used in linguistics, computer science, and psychology. How they are used, however, varies widely according to the research domain: natural language processing, knowledge representation, cognitive modelling, problem solving mechanisms, etc. The purpose is to pursue a paradigm, unifying the different approaches into a common framework capable of explaining how constraints play a role in representing, processing and acquiring linguistic information, and this from a formal, technical, and cognitive perspective. The topics include, but are not limited to, constraint-based linguistic theories, constraints in human language comprehension and production, context modelling and discourse interpretation, acquisition of constraints, probabilistic constraint-based reasoning, constraint satisfaction technologies and constraint logic programming.
