6th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MEANING AND KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION (5, 6 and 7 July, 2017)


Natural language understanding systems require a knowledge base provided with formal representations reflecting the structure of human beings' cognitive system. Although surface semantics can be sufficient in some other systems, the construction of a robust knowledge base guarantees its use in most natural language processing applications, thus consolidating the concept of resource reuse. This conference deals with meaning and knowledge representation in the context of natural language understanding from the perspective of theoretical linguistics, computational linguistics, cognitive science, knowledge engineering, artificial intelligence or linked data and semantic web technologies.

Following the success of previous editions, the Fifth International Conference on Meaning and Knowledge Representation will take place in St. Petersburg (Russia), July 5, 6 and 7, 2017, organized by St. Petersburg Institute of International Economic Relations, Economics and Law.

This conference is sponsored by:
