Brief Bio
Roussanka Loukanova has master degrees in mathematics from Sofia University, and computer science from Indiana University. She has PhD degree in mathematics from Moscow State University. She has been teaching topics in the areas of mathematics, logic, computability, computer science, and computational linguistics, at Sofia University, Indiana University, University of Minnesota, Illinois Wesleyan University, and Uppsala University. Her research is in the areas of logic, computability, type theories, languages, and information theory. Her major contributions are in recursion theory, computational syntax, semantics, and syntax-semantics interfaces of formal and natural languages. She is a researcher at Stockholm University, Sweden.
Aarne Ranta
University of Gothenburg

Brief Bio
Aarne Ranta is Professor of Computer Science at the University of Gothenburg as well as CEO and co-founder of Digital Grammars AB. Ranta's research was initially focused on constructive type theory and its applications to natural language semantics. It evolved gradually to computational applications, leading to the implementation of GF (Grammatical Framework). The mission of GF is to formalize the grammars of the world and make them available for computer applications. It enables the processing of natural language with the same precision as programming languages are processed in compilers. http://www.cse.chalmers.se/~aarne/

SCOPE

Computational and technological developments that incorporate natural language are proliferating. Adequate coverage encounters difficult problems related to partiality, underspecification, and context-dependency, which are signature features of information in nature and natural languages. Furthermore, agents (humans or computational systems) are information conveyors, interpreters, or participate as components of informational content. Generally, language processing depends on agents' knowledge, reasoning, perspectives, and interactions.

The session covers theoretical work, advanced applications, approaches, and techniques for computational models of information and its presentation by language (artificial, human, or natural in other ways). The goal is to promote intelligent natural language processing and related models of thought, mental states, reasoning, and other cognitive processes.

We invite contributions relevant to the following topics, without limiting to them:
- Type theories for applications to language and information processing
- Computational grammar
