Processing and Evaluating Event Representations

About This Event

The Second Workshop on Processing and Evaluating Event Representations (PEER2023) 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 this domain: (a) what symbolic and continuous representations of linguistic meanings are necessary for capturing different aspects of linguistic meaning?; (b) how do we determine the the psycholinguistic validity of such representations to better understand incremental processing in humans?; and (c) how might the psycholinguistically valid representations be deployed during incremental language processing? Special focus is placed on meaning representations that take the concept of an event as a core organizing principle.
