RefNet Summer school on Psychological and Computational Models of Language Production

  • Ellen Gurman Bard (Organiser)

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Aim of the RefNet Summer School: The modelling of human language production requires an increasingly varied range of skills & techniques, hailing from different scientific disciplines, including psychology, computing science, linguistics, and others. Examples of these skills are eye-tracking, algorithmic models, bayesian reasoning, and mixed-effects modelling. The summer school is an attempt to introduce and discuss these techniques, focussing on the production of referring expressions as an example. The summer school focusses on the linguistic phenomenon of reference production because it is one of the best examples of the convergence of the above-mentioned disciplines.
