Aims and Scope

Conferences of the series "Cognitive Modeling" have been held with success since 1998.

In 2000 the direction was specified as "Cognitive Modeling in Linguistics" (CML).
In 1998 and 2000 CML conferences were held as a part of the Russian National Conference on Artificial Intelligence (CAI), in 2001 as a part of the International Congress on Artificial Intelligence (ICAI-2001), which took place in Divnomorskoe (Russia). In 2002 the CML conference was held in Divnomorskoe, as a part of the IEEE International Conference "Artificial Intelligence Systems" (IEEE AIS’02). From 2003 to 2007 CML conferences took place in Bulgaria (Varna and Sofia). In 2008 the Conference was conducted in Bechichi, Montenegro. CML-2009 visited Constanza (Romania), and in 2010 CML was held in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

 The new, XIIIth Conference (CML-2010) is planned on the island Corfu in Greece. The Program of CML-2012 includes a Tutorial in Lexical and Grammatical Statistics (organized by the Institute of Linguistics of the Russian Academy of Sciences), a Cognitive Science Workshop (organized by the Psychology Department of Lomonosov’s Moscow State University), an Exhibition of Cognitively-Oriented Computer Applications and Linguistic Resources (organized by the National Research Technological University (MISIS)), other Workshops and Discussion Tables devoted to modern trends in Cognitive Science. .

The aim of the conference is to integrate the work of specialists in cognitive science, cognitive psychology, learning theory, neural network theory, cognitive linguistics, knowledge engineering, semiotics, psycholinguistics, etc.

The results are expected to contribute to the investigation of cognitive processing of language information.

Conference Location

The XIIIth International Conference “Cognitive Modeling in Linguistics” (CML– 2012) will be held on Corfu, Greece.

Corfu is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea. It is the second largest of the Ionian Islands.
The principal town (pop. 28,185) of the island is also named Corfu, or Kérkyra in Greek, as is its municipality (pop. 39,487).

Corfu is home to the Ionian University. In 2007, the city's old town was designated for the UNESCO World Heritage List, following a recommendation by ICOMOS. ( )

Dassia Chandris hotel was choosen as a place of the CML-2012. Dassia Chandris hotel is situated in the district of Dassia, in Dassia bay, surrounded by one of the island’s loveliest gardens and has a dazzling view to the Ionian Sea. Just 10 minutes away from the Corfu’s Venetian town and lively shopping area.
