COLING Workshop "Computational Linguistics for Linguistic Complexity"

News date: 
Tuesday, 21 June, 2016

Sara Tonelli is in the program committee of the workshop on Computational Linguistics for Linguistic Complexity (CL4LC), co-located with COLING 2016

CL4LC aims at investigating "processing" aspects of linguistic complexity both from a machine point of view and from the perspective of the human subject to promote a common reflection on approaches for the detection, evaluation and modelling of linguistic complexity.

The objective of the workshop is to promote a common reflection on approaches for the detection, evaluation and modeling of linguistic complexity, with a particular emphasis on  research questions such as:
  • whether, and to what extent, a machine and human subject perspective can be combined or share commonalities;
  • whether, and to what extent, linguistic complexity metrics specific for the human subject perspective can be extended for handling complexity for machine and vice versa;
  • whether, and to what extent, linguistic phenomena hampering human processing correlate with difficulties in the automatic processing of language.

Topics of interest include the detection and measurement of linguistic complexity, the processing of Linguistic Complexity, NLP tools and resources for CL4LC, and vision papers discussing the link between human and machine oriented perspectives on linguistic complexity.
