Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence special issue on:
Mathematical Theories of Natural Language Processing

Since the 1990s, the practice of natural language processing (NLP) has gradually shifted from logic-based symbol manipulation systems first to purely statistical, and more recently to hybrid systems that combine structural and statistical methods. The mathematical theory of hybrid NLP is still not fully mature, and the special issue will lend focus to this expanding research area by including papers from mathematicians, computer scientists, theoretical and computational linguists and AI researchers with an interest in its foundations. Subjects suitable for the special issue include, but are not limited to, NLP-related advances in
  • inductive learning
  • spectral techniques
  • formal grammars
  • commonsense reasoning
  • low-pass semantics
  • sparse models
  • LSTM, deep learning
  • compressed sensing
  • cvs/distributional theories
Papers which were presented in January 2014 at the ISAIM special session on this topic are especially invited for submission, but other submissions not associated with ISAIM will be given equal consideration for publication. All papers will go through the standard refereeing process of the journal.

The submission deadline is July 31, 2014. Papers should be submitted through the Springer website for the journal choosing article type Special Issue S79: Mathematical Theories of NLP
