We were noticed that our workshop proposal was accepted! We are excited to organize the Context and Compositionality in Biological and Artificial Neural Systems next December at NeurIPS 2019, Vancouver, Canada.
During the workshop we will explore advances in context in language processing and their relationship with compositionality from the different angles of Neuroscience, Linguistics/NLP, and Machine Learning. Therefore, we invite researchers in these and subjecent fields to submit their work until September 18th (11:59pm PT). Check the Call for Papers for more information.
We are looking forward to your interesting contributions and discussions!
The past year, I have been steering my research to a new fascinating topic: language processing and the brain. Together with Prof. Alex Huth and his PhD student Shailee Jain, we are exploring how the brain processes and utilizes context for language understanding. We come up with the idea to extend our internal discussions to a much broader community that includes researchers from Neuroscience, Linguistics, and Machine Learning. One of the best places where researchers from all these fields congregate is at the NeurIPS conference.
Therefore, we embarked in recruiting an amazing group of people that is both interested in the topic and would love to work together to organize such workshop. A few emails and Emma Strubell, Leila Wehbe, Chris Honey, Tal Linzen, Kyunghyun Cho, and Alan Yuille joined us to the organization. Amazing people and several meetings later, and we submitted our NeurIPS workshop proposal. Let’s see how it goes!
