Brief Bio
Roussanka Loukanova is currently a Associated Researcher at Stockholm University, Sweden, and Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Bulgaria. The focus of her research is on subjects such as: type theoretic approaches to information and information processing; type-theory of algorithms; type-theory of situated information; computerised processing of formal and natural languages; type-theoretic grammars; Constraint Based Lexicalized Grammar (CBLG) of natural language; computational syntax, semantics, and syntax-semantics interfaces in formal and natural languages. Her work targets new approaches to NLP in AI and new mathematical foundations of AI.


Computational and technological developments that incorporate natural language are proliferating. Adequate coverage encounters difficult problems related to partiality, underspecification, and context-dependency, which are signature features of information in nature and natural languages.

Increased power of hardware and software allows collection of large language sources, which require Natural Language Processing (NLP). Large language models (LLM) are important for information processing. LLM and NLP are interrelated and significant in AI.

The session covers theoretical work, applications, approaches, and techniques for computational models of information and its presentation by language (artificial, human, or natural in other ways). The goal is to promote computational systems of intelligent language processing and related models of information, language, reasoning, etc.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Computational Grammar
  • Computational Models of Partiality, Underspecification, and Context-Dependency
  • Computational Neuroscience of Language
  • Computational Processing of Language in Various Specific Areas and Domains, E.G., In Forensics, Medical Sciences, Healthcare, Jurisdiction, Law, etc.
  • Computational Semantics of Natural Languages
  • Computational Syntax
  • Computational Syntax-Semantics Interface
  • Controlled Languages of Mathematics
  • Data Science in Language Processing
  • Deep Machine Learning
  • Hybrid, Integrated Methods in LLM and NLP
  • Information about Space and Time in Language Models and Processing
  • Integration of formal, Computational, Model Theoretic, Graphical, Diagrammatic, Statistical, and other Related Methods
  • Interdisciplinary Methods
  • Interdisciplinary Processing of Natural and Formal Language of Mathematics
  • Interfaces between Morphology, Lexicon, Syntax, Semantics, Speech, Text, Pragmatics
  • Language Processing Based on Biological Fundamentals of Information and Languages
  • Large-Scale Grammars of Natural Languages
  • Logic for Information Extraction or Expression in Written and Spoken Language
  • Machine Learning of Information and Language
  • Models of Computation and Algorithms for Linguistics
  • Models of Computation and Algorithms for Natural Language Processing
  • Models of Situations, Contexts, and Agents, for Applications to Language Processing
  • Multilingual Processing
  • Parsing
  • Translations Between Natural Language of Mathematics and Formal Languages of Proof and Verification Systems
