Language Evolution and Computation Workshop/Course
at the 15th European Summer School on Logic Language and Information, Vienna, August 2003
One of the surprising developments has been the emergence of an interdisciplinary approach that highlights the computational aspects of language evolution. Techniques from theoretical biology, machine learning, robotics, evolutionary computation, artificial life, and computational linguistics promise to give us tools to answer these central questions. This workshop/course was a unique opportunity to survey the state of the art in this rapidly developing field.
