Production of Referring Expressions: Bridging the gap between cognitive and computational approaches to reference
PRE-CogSci 2013 is a follow-up to two successful earlier workshops on the production of referring expressions. The first, PRE-CogSci 2009, focussed on the interplay between computational and empirical methods, organised as part of the 31st CogSci conference in Amsterdam. The second, PRE-CogSci 2011 in Boston, broadened this theme to include work on dialogue and linguistic theory. We explore new directions for computational and cognitive work (e.g., collaborative reference, nondeterminism in production, interaction between comprehension and production, combinations with research on vision).
