Nineteenth International Conference on TEXT, SPEECH and DIALOGUE (TSD 2016)
              Brno, Czech Republic, 12-16 September 2016

The conference is organized by the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk
University, Brno, and the Faculty of Applied Sciences, University of
West Bohemia, Pilsen.  The conference is supported by International
Speech Communication Association.

Venue: Brno, Czech Republic

TSD series evolved as a prime forum for interaction between researchers in
both spoken and written language processing from all over the world.
Proceedings of TSD form a book published by Springer-Verlag in their
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series.  TSD Proceedings
are regularly indexed by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation
Index.  Moreover, LNAI series are listed in all major citation databases

The TSD 2016 conference will be accompanied by a one-day satellite workshop

    Community-based Building of Language Resources, CBBLR

    The main topic of the workshop is directed at building new language
    resources, especially for languages with no or too little existing
    language resources.  The workshop is organized in cooperation with the
    HaBiT CZ-NO project Consortium, submissions from other resource
    development projects are more than welcomed.  The workshop submissions
    will undergo two separate review processes - the best papers which will
    succeed in both review processes (by the TSD 2016 Conference PC and
    CBBLR Workshop 2016 PC) will be published in the TSD 2016 Springer
    Proceedings, all other accepted CBBLR workshop papers will be published
    in a separate proceedings with ISBN.  The CBBLR workshop will take
    place on September 12 2016 in the conference venue.

The TSD 2016 conference will be directly followed by a meeting of the
working groups and management committee of the 

    ISCH COST Action IS 1305
    European Network of e-Lexicography (ENeL) 


Topics of the conference will include (but are not limited to):

    Corpora and Language Resources (monolingual, multilingual,
    text and spoken corpora, large web corpora, disambiguation,
    specialized lexicons, dictionaries)

    Speech Recognition (multilingual, continuous, emotional
    speech, handicapped speaker, out-of-vocabulary words,
    alternative way of feature extraction, new models for
    acoustic and language modelling)

    Tagging, Classification and Parsing of Text and Speech
    (morphological and syntactic analysis, synthesis and
    disambiguation, multilingual processing, sentiment analysis,
    credibility analysis, automatic text labeling, summarization,
    authorship attribution)

|  Bridging the Gap between Human and Automated Reasoning  |

       an IJCAI-16 workshop (supported by IFIP TC12)
               New York, USA, July 9th, 2016

Human  reasoning  or  the  psychology  of  deduction is well
researched in cognitive psychology and in cognitive science.
There  are a lot of findings which are based on experimental
data about reasoning tasks,  among  others  models  for  the
selection  task  or  the suppression task discussed by Byrne
and  others.  This  research  is  supported  also  by  brain
researchers,  who  aim  at  localizing  reasoning  processes
within the brain.

Automated deduction, on the other hand, is  mainly  focusing
on the automated proof search in logical calculi. And indeed
there is tremendous success during the last decades.

Recently a coupling of the areas of  cognitive  science  and
automated  reasoning is addressed in several approaches. For
example there is increasing interest in modeling human  rea-
soning within automated reasoning systems including modeling
with answer set  programming,  deontic  logic  or  abductive
logic  programming. There are also various approaches within
AI research.

This workshop is a follow-up event of the successful  Bridg-
ing  workshop (http://ratiolog.uni-koblenz.de/bridging.html)
which was located at CADE-25. Like its preceding  event,  it
is  intended  to  get an overview of existing approaches and
make a step  towards  a  cooperation  between  computational
logic and cognitive science. Topics of interest include, but
are not limited to the following:

o limits and differences between automated and human reason-

o psychology of deduction

o common sense reasoning

o logics modeling human cognition

o modeling human reasoning using automated reasoning systems

o non-monotonic, defeasible,  and  classical  reasoning  and
  possible explanations for human reasoning

o application  fields of automated reasoning in the interac-
  tion with human reasoners

The workshop will be held in conjunction with  IJCAI-16  and
is supported by IFIP TC12.
