Meeting Description:

The aim of this workshop is to foster interactions among researchers and practitioners in Natural Language Processing (NLP) by taking a Cognitive Science perspective.

What characterizes this kind of approach is the fact that NLP is considered from various viewpoints (linguistics, psychology, statistics, computer science, artificial intelligence), and that a deliberate effort is made to reconcile or integrate these viewpoints into a coherent whole.

We believe that this is necessary, as the modeling of the process is simply too complex to be addressed by a single discipline. No matter whether we deal with a natural system (people), an artificial system (computers) or a combination of both (interactive NLP), systems rely on many types of very different knowledge sources. Hence, strategies vary considerably depending on the person (novice, expert), on the available knowledge (internal and external), and on the nature of the information processor: man, machine or both (man-machine communication, interactive NLP).

This being so, any of the following aspects are welcomed: structure, representation and processing of information by different agents (natural, artificial or both) and in different communication modes.
