Computational, Cognitive, and Linguistic Approaches to the Analysis of Complex Words and Collocations (CCLCC 2014)

Workshop organized as part of the European Summer School on Logic, Language and Information ESSLLI 2014 (, August 11-15 2014 (ESSLLI first week), Tübingen, Germany

Workshop Organizers:

Erhard Hinrichs and Verena Henrich

Workshop Purpose:

The analysis of complex words, compounds, and collocations has received considerable attention in linguistics, cognitive science and computational linguistics. Research on these phenomena concerns theoretical, experimental, and applied aspects relevant to all three disciplines. This diverse and interdisciplinary perspective lends itself particularly well to an ESSLLI workshop on this topic.

The aim of the workshop is to stimulate a cross-disciplinary discussion that will be of mutual benefit to the three fields sketched above and that will provide a forum for junior and senior researchers alike.

Relevant topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following issues:
- Cognitive and computational models for the interpretation of compounds and collocations
- Experimental and computational methods for the analysis of compounds and collocations
- Statistical models for the identification and classification of collocations
- Word formation, lexical semantics, and semantic compositionality
- Word formation at the interface of morphology and syntax

Submission Details:

Authors are invited to submit an EXTENDED ABSTRACT for a 30-minute presentation (including discussion). Submissions should not exceed 3 pages, including figures, data, and references. The submissions will be reviewed anonymously by the workshop's program committee. The abstracts accepted for presentation will be published on the workshop's web site. In addition, we are considering the possibility of compiling a journal special issue from selected papers presented at the workshop.

Please upload your submission at EasyChair:
