Descripción

Natural language understanding systems require a knowledge base provided with formal representations reflecting the structure of human beings' cognitive system. Although surface semantics can be sufficient in some other systems, the construction of a robust knowledge base guarantees its use in most natural language processing applications, thus consolidating the concept of resource reuse. This conference deals with meaning and knowledge representation in the context of natural language understanding from the perspective of theoretical linguistics, computational linguistics, cognitive science, knowledge engineering, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, text analytics or linked data and semantic web technologies.


 


We invite 20-minute (plus 10-minute discussion) presentation proposals on the following general and/or specific topics: 


General topics:



  1. At the crossroads between functionalist, cognitivist and/or constructionist approaches.

  2. Division of labour of lexical semantics and constructional semantics.

  3. Role of metaphor and metonymy and other cognitive operations in meaning construction and grammar.

  4. Relationship between semantics, pragmatics and discourse in meaning construction and/or meaning representation.

  5. Cognitive modelling and construal.

  6. Linked data and semantic web technologies.

  7. Knowledge representation and conversational agents.

  8. Artificial Intelligence and natural language processing (NLP).

  9. Functional-cognitive approaches to language aware software.

  10. Human Language Technologies.

  11. Text analytics, NLP, and meaning.

  12. Sentiment Analysis.

  13. Social-Media Text Processing.

  14. Web Content Mining.

  15. Information Extraction.

  16. Linked Data Development/Applications.

  17. Parsing, NER, POS tagging.

  18. Deep Learning on Unstructured Data.

  19. Topic Modelling and Detection.

  20. Lexicon Application and Generation.

  21. Natural Language Generation.

  22. Lexical Constructional Model (LCM) and FunGramKB.


 


Specific topics:



  1. Meaning construction and meaning representation in the LCM.

  2. Methodological tools in the LCM (e.g. equipollence).

  3. Syntactic representation in the LCM.

  4. The form of lexical and constructional templates in the LCM.

  5. Connections between the LCM and FunGramKB.

  6. Lexico-grammatical knowledge in FunGramKB.

  7. Terminology in FunGramKB.

  8. Conceptual representation in FunGramKB.

  9. Reasoning in FunGramKB.

  10. NLP applications of FunGramKB.
