A workshop to be held June 7, 2012
at the North American Association for Computational
Linguistics meeting (NAACL-HLT)
in Montreal, Quebec
The workshop is sponsored by the Association for Computational Linguistics and the Cognitive Science Society.
This workshop provides a venue for work in computational psycholinguistics. ACL Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Martin Kay described this topic as "build[ing] models of language that reflect in some interesting way on the ways in which people use language." The 2012 workshop follows in the tradition of several previous meetings
in inviting contributions that apply methods from computational linguistics to problems in the cognitive modeling of any and all natural language abilities.
The workshop invites a broad spectrum of work in the cognitive science of language, at all levels of analysis from sounds to discourse. Topics include, but are not limited to
This call solicits full papers reporting original and unpublished research that combines cognitive modeling and computational linguistics. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the workshop and will be published in the workshop proceedings. They should emphasize obtained results rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results. A paper accepted for presentation at the workshop must not be presented or have been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. If essentially identical papers are submitted to other conferences or workshops as well, this fact must be indicated at submission time. No submission should be longer than necessary, up to a maximum 8 pages plus two additional pages containing references.
To facilitate double-blind reviewing, submitted manuscripts should not include any identifying information about the authors.
Submissions must be formatted using NAACL 2012 style files available at
Contributions should be submitted in PDF via the submission site:
The submission deadline is 11:59PM Eastern Time on March 30, 2012.
The best paper whose first author is a student will receive the Best Student Paper award, sponsored by the Cognitive Science Society. The award includes a one-year membership to the society and a cash prize.
All accepted CMCL papers will be published in the workshop proceedings as is customary at ACL conferences.
Submission deadline: 30 March 2012 (Extended deadline!)
Notification of acceptance: 28 April 2012
Camera-ready versions due: 08 May 2012
