Special Session on Computational Linguistics, Information, Reasoning, and AI (CLIRAI)

Scope

Computational and technological developments that incorporate natural language and reasoning methods are proliferating. Adequate coverage encounters difficult problems related to the phenomena of partiality, underspecification, perspectives of agents, and context dependency. These phenomena are signature features of information in nature, natural languages, and reasoning.

The session covers theoretical work, applications, approaches, and techniques for computational models of information, language (artificial, human, or natural in other ways), reasoning. The goal is to promote computational systems and related models of language, thought, reasoning, and other related processes.
