Meeting Description:

LACL'2011 is the 6th edition of a series of international conferences on logical and formal methods in computational linguistics. It addresses in particular the use of type theoretic, proof theoretic and model theoretic methods for describing natural language syntax and semantics, as well as the implementation of natural language processing software relying on such models. It will be held at the LIRMM, Montpellier, France. It will be co-located with TALN, the conference of the French association for NLP (ATALA).

Call for Papers:


Computer scientists, linguists, mathematicians and philosophers are invited to present their work on the use of logical methods in computational linguistics and natural language processing, in natural language analysis, generation or acquisition.

a. Logical foundation of syntactic formalisms- categorial grammars- minimalist grammars- dependency grammars- tree adjoining grammars- model theoretic syntax- formal language theory for natural language processing- data-driven approachesb. Logic for semantics of lexical items, sentences, discourse and dialog- discourse theories- Montague semantics- compositionality- dynamic logics- game semantics- situation semantics- generative lexicon- categorical semanticsc. Applications of these models to natural language processing- software for natural language analysis- software for acquiring linguistic resources- software for natural language generation- software for information extraction- inference tasks- evaluation- scalability

Submissions and Proceedings:

Articles should be written in the LaTeX format of LNCS/LNAI by Springer (see authors instructions at and should not exceed 16 pages (including figures, bibliography, possible appendices). It is expected that each accepted paper be presented at the meeting by one of its authors.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format at


Proceedings will be available at the conference.

Invited Speakers:

To be announced.
