FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS: 2nd International Workshop on Learning, Agents and Formal Languages (LAFLang)

15-18 February, 2013
Barcelona, Spain

Co-located with ICAART 2013 – International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence

Sponsored by PASCAL 2


The workshop focuses on the common space delimited by three main areas: machine learning, agent technologies and formal language theory. The main goal of the workshop is to promote interdisciplinarity among people working in such disciplines, boosting the interchange of knowledge and viewpoints between specialists.


We are interested in contributions on any interaction between machine learning, agent technologies and formal language theory. Topics include (but are not limited to):

– Agent systems modelling
– Computational models of language learning
– Theoretical and/or empirical aspects of Grammatical Inference
– Theoretical descriptions of languages based on agent systems
– Formal models of bio-inspired agent systems
– Learning agents: Machine learning and Agent systems
– Applications of machine learning and agent technologies to natural language processing, human-computer interaction and language evolution.
– Intelligent human-computer interaction
