Workshop on Processing and Evaluating Event Representations (PEER2023)

March 31, 2023

Members of the CLS community are cordially invited to participate in the Second Workshop on Processing and Evaluating Event Representations (PEER2023), which will be held on March 31, 2023 at the University of Rochester.

The workshop aims to bring together researchers working on computational models of incremental language understanding with researchers working on event semantics from both a computational and experimental perspective. Presentations will focus on a variety of questions in these domains:

  • What symbolic and continuous representations are necessary for capturing different aspects of linguistic meaning?
  • How do we determine the psycholinguistic validity of such representations to better understand incremental processing in humans?
  • How might the psycholinguistically valid representations be deployed during incremental language processing?

The workshop is sponsored by the Central New York Humanities Corridor and the Center for Language Sciences at the University of Rochester. Its broader goals are to build collaborations among researchers in Western and Central New York and to provide a platform for giving feedback to student researchers.
