Thirteenth Conference on Computational Natural Language Learning


Thirteenth Conference on Computational Natural Language Learning
Boulder, CO, USA
June 4-5

CoNLL is the yearly international conference organized by SIGNLL (the ACL Special Interest Group on Natural Language Learning). This year, 2009, CoNLL will be collocated with NAACL HLT in Boulder, CO, USA.

Submission of papers about natural language learning topics, including, but not limited to:

  • Computational models of human language acquisition
  • Computational models of the evolution of language
  • Machine learning methods applied to natural language processing tasks (speech processing, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, discourse processing, machine translation)
  • Statistical methods (Bayesian learning, log-linear models, kernel methods, graphical models)
  • Symbolic learning methods (rule induction and decision tree learning, lazy learning, inductive logic programming, analytical learning, transformation-based error-driven learning)
  • Biologically-inspired methods (Neural Networks, Evolutionary Computing)
  • Learning architectures for structural and relational NLP tasks
  • Reinforcement learning
  • Active learning, ensemble methods, meta-learning
  • Computational learning theory analysis of language learning
  • Empirical and theoretical comparisons of language learning methods
  • Models of induction and analogy in linguistics
