LACL'2005 - Student Session

Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics

Call For Papers

[See the program]
[See the proceedings]


LACL'2005 is the 5th edition of a series of international conferences on logical and formal methods in computational linguistics. It addresses in particular the use of 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.

Student Session

For the first time, LACL'2005 will feature a student session. Students (not having defended yet their PhD thesis or defending it in 2005) are invited to submit short papers (2 or 3 pages) on the same topics as LACL. Submitted papers may present only partial but promising work.

This student session offers a good opportunity for students to acquaint themselves with the world of research: digest writing exercise, feedback from the program committee, oral presentation exercise, feedback from LACL attendants.

Students whose articles will be selected for the student session will benefit from reduced registration fees for the LACL conference.

Paper Selection

Submitted articles will be reviewed by a program committee made of a group of experienced researcher as well as a group of chosen PhD students. Each article will be reviewed by at least one experienced researcher and one of these PhD students.

Paper Presentation

Students whose papers will be selected will present their work in a poster session at the LACL conference. The papers will also be grouped and edited as an INRIA research report.


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.

Submission Format

Papers are be 2 to 3 pages long, including bibliography and possible figures and appendices. Articles, in PDF format, should be sent by email to, with the keywords "student session" in the mail subject.
