Co-located with EACL 2014, Gothenburg, Sweden
Type theory has been a central area of research in logic, the semantics of programming languages, and natural language semantics over the past fifty years. Recent developments in type theory have been used to reconstruct the formal foundations of computational semantics. These theories are generally intensional and polymorphic in character, and they allow for structured, fine-grained encoding of information across a diverse set of linguistic domains.
The work in this area has opened up new approaches to modeling the relations between, inter alia, syntax, semantic interpretation, dialogue, inference, and cognition, from a largely proof theoretic perspective.
The proposed workshop will provide a forum for the presentation of leading edge research in this fast developing subeld of computational linguistics. To the best of our knowledge it will be the first major conference on this topic hosted by the ACL.
We look forward to seeing you in Gothenburg!
