Invited talk: 'Computational Semantics and Pragmatics' (Rodolfo DelMonte, 2011/01/17,18

Speaker: Rodolfo Delmonte, (Università Ca’ Foscari, Venice, Italy).
Date: January 17 and 18, 2011
Time: 16:00 – 19:30
Where: Computer Science Faculty

ABSTRACT
These two sessions cover some of the most important aspects of Computational Semantics and Pragmatics including:
* Lexical Representations and Argument Structure
* Parsing with constituency or dependency structure
* Co-reference resolution
* Underspecified arguments
* Argumentative structure, subjectivity, factuality and sentiment analysis
* Textual Entailment
The talks follow a linguistically motivated approach with the use of ontologies and similar resources to deal with co-reference or textual entailment tasks. The talks are accompanied by several applications and demonstrations.
