ESP07






Call for papers



The workshop "Embodied sentence processing: behavioural, neuropsychological, and computational perspectives" (ESP07) focuses on research that examines the online interaction of non-linguistic (e.g., visuomotor) processing and sentence comprehension. Particular emphasis is given to bringing together insights from different research traditions (e.g., embodiment and language for action), and/or novel methodological approaches.

We invite submissions presenting original bahavioural and/or neuropsychological investigations of embodied and situated language processing, and also welcome relevant computational modeling results. Submissions will be reviewed by members of the program committee. Examples for topics include but are not limited to:

  • The use of non-linguistic information during sentence processing
  • Interactions between visual attention and sentence processing
  • Interactions between online sentence comprehension and motor activity
  • Cognitive computational models of language-vision interaction
  • Language processing in embodied cognitive systems (e.g. robots)


  • Accepted presentations will be presented at the workshop as either papers or posters. The deadline for submissions is May 14, 2007. Please email submissions to esp07@coli.uni-sb.de. Notifications concerning the submissions will be made by June 15, 2007. For further details regarding submission please consult the homepage of the workshop at http://www.coli.uni-saarland.de/conf/esp07/ and specifically the Submissions section.
