What is SLIE ?

Traditionally, the study of information extraction, knowledge processing
and language processing is performed by computer scientists,
specializing in the application of computers to the processing of a
natural language and large structured or semi-structured
data-bases. Today, people working in information extraction, knowledge
processing, and particularly in language processing often work as
members of interdisciplinary teams, including linguists (specifically
trained in linguistics), language experts (persons with some level of
ability in the languages relevant to a given project), statisticians,
and computer scientists. In general, computational linguistics draws
upon the involvement of linguists, computer scientists, experts in
artificial intelligence, mathematicians, logicians, cognitive
scientists, cognitive psychologists, psycholinguists, anthropologists
and neuroscientists, among others. Information extraction as part of
knowledge processing and language processing, as well, must become more
connected to the cognitive sciences through the development of cognitive
semantic theories. Information extraction as part of knowledge
processing is connected to artificial intelligence through the
development of methods and algorithms for all aspects of language
analysis and their computer implementation. We can see language analysis
divided into two parts : theoretical analysis and application. The
theoretical aspect includes standard areas studied in linguistics
methods as semantics, syntax, and morphology or numerical methods as
those used in information retrieval or text-mining. Semantic theories
guide the development of lexical theories, syntactic theories and
morphology. Semantic theories can be based on some specific features of
computation, but at the present stage of research, there is a gap
between linguistic analysis and computer applications in two senses :
there are many computer applications without linguistic theoretical
support and, conversely, there are a number of theoretical methods with
no computer implementation. Semantic as part of computational linguistic
and language processing is very related to the logic and to logics. If
we accept the hypothesis that there is a logic of language and logics of
natural languages, the upstream of each algorithm or method representing
the basis of a AI system of language analysis is a logic and a
semantic. The downstream of semantic analysis can be found in
translation, automatic text generation and even automatic annotation of
texts or information retrieval. Generally, the knowledge processing and
particularly, the information extraction must take into account this
epistemological chain for to lead to effective, robust and reliable

What is the GOAL of the track ?

This track is intended to present works ranking from logical,
mathematical, and statistical models in syntax and semantics (logic of
objects, topological theories of time and space, lexical associations,
etc.) as foundations of the design and analysis to knowledge processing
and natural language processing systems and especially to information

Who might be interested ?

Special tracks, held in parallel with the general conference, are an
integral part of the conference. They provide researchers in focused
areas the opportunity to meet and present their work, and offer a forum
for interaction among the broader community of artificial intelligence
researchers. Topics of interest are in all areas related to artificial

What kind of studies will be of interest ?

Papers and contributions are encouraged for any work relating to
Semantic, Logics and Information Extraction in AI. Topics of interest
may include (but are in no way limited to) :

1. Philosophy of language - new developments,
2. Cognitive semantics,
3. Logics of language,
4. Language modeling,
5. Computational linguistics (lexicology ; morphology ; syntax ;
6. Information extraction,
7. Domain ontologies, linguistic ontologies,
8. Knowledge processing,
9. Translation,
10. Text-mining.
11. Deep-Learning.
12. etc.

Note : We invite original papers (i.e. work not previously submitted, in
submission, or to be submitted to another conference during the
reviewing process).

Submission Guidelines

Interested authors should format their papers according to AAAI
guidelines<> . The
papers should be original work (i.e., not submitted, in submission, or
submitted to another conference while in review). Papers should not
exceed 6 pages (4 pages for a poster) and are due by November 19,
2018. For FLAIRS-32, the 2019 conference, the reviewing is a double
blind process. Fake author names and affiliations must be used on
submitted papers to provide double-blind reviewing. Papers must be
submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system, which can be
accessed through the main conference web site
( Note : do not use a fake name for your
EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is hidden from
reviewers. Authors should indicate the [your track name] special track
for submissions. The proceedings of FLAIRS will be published by the
AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a form
transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI. FLAIRS requires
that there be at least one full author registration per paper.

Please, check the website for further

Conference Proceedings

Papers will be refereed and all accepted papers will appear in the
conference proceedings, which will be published by AAAI Press.
