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. Furthermore, agents (humans or computational systems) are information conveyors, interpreters, or participate as components of informational content. Generally, language processing depends on agents' knowledge, reasoning, perspectives, and interactions.

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). Its goal is to promote computational systems of intelligent natural language processing and related models of information, thought, mental states, cognition, knowledge, reasoning, and argumentation.
