[Dbworld] CFP 2nd Workshop on Natural Language Processing and Automated Reasoning (NLPAR) <at> LPNMR, Lexington KY


2nd Workshop on Natural Language Processing and Automated Reasoning (NLPAR 2015)

Collocated with the 13th International Conference on Logic Programming and
Nonmonotonic Reasoning 2015 in Lexington, Kentucky, USA, September 27-30, 2015.


Natural Language Processing (NLP) has been of interest for a long time; to the
Artificial Intelligence community in general and to the Logic Programming and
Automated Reasoning community in particular. NLP approaches that are based on
logical inference promise a deeper understanding of natural language than
possible with purely statistics-based methods.  A deep understanding is
beneficial and necessary in most areas of NLP, for example word and entity
recognition; word sense disambiguation; parsing and syntactical disambiguation;
and reasoning over the semantics and pragmatics of words, phrases, sentences,
and whole discourses.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers with a common interest in
addressing the challenges of natural language processing using automated
reasoning methods. This edition will feature an invited talk by Jerry Hobbs,
the winner of the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award of the Association of
Computational Linguistics, who has been doing pioneering research on the
interface between natural language, logical inference, and common sense
knowledge over the past 40 years.

Special Issue on Behavior Analysis in Social Networks: Challenges, Technologies, and Trends

Call For Papers: Special issue of the Neurocomputing 

In recent years, social network research has advanced significantly, thanks to the prevalence of the
online social websites and instant messaging systems as well as the availability of a variety of
large-scale offline social network systems. These social network systems are usually characterized by
the complex network structures and rich accompanying contextual information. Nowadays they are key
platforms for, among others, content dissemination, professional networking, recommendation,
scouting, alerting, and political campaigns. Researchers are increasingly interested in addressing a
wide range of challenges residing in the multi-source of large-scale data about the human behavior in
social networks. It spans a number of disciplines, across numerous fields in and beyond computer science,
  all the way up to the analysis of social relationships and how they evolve and mature over time. These issues
have important implications on community discovery, anomaly detection, and tre!
 nd prediction, and they can enhance applications in multiple domains such as information retrieval,
recommendation systems, trust and security and so on. Research in behavior analysis is a fertile ground
also for industry, to develop innovative ideas fostering the design of the new generation of social
network platforms and their services.

This special issue seeks contributions pushing the state of the art in all facets of behavior analysis in
social networks highlighted above. We also encourage original work based on an interdisciplinary
