Recently, computers have been able to deal with human language. However,
computers can deal with only superficial or structural aspects of human
language by the methods based on grammatical theories.
We will be at the start line to deal with ``intention,'' ``affection'' or
``emotion'' etc. that will be naturally possessed by human language.
As a result of boom in internet, multimedia is thought of as an important
factor in communication. However, recently, ``words'' have been thought
of as more important factor than multimedia such as pictures.
In the environment like the internet, ``words'' are thought of not only as
media that communicate information (as defined in the classical interpretation
of communication), but also as affective / sensitive
media that have been utilised in advertisement.
Therefore, it will be important to discuss such computational, affective,
psychological, artistic and cognitive
aspects of language from an interdisciplinary viewpoint.
We hereby use the word ``language sense'' to show an affective or
psychological aspects of
language. Therefore, ``language sense'' will inspire such a language that
includes emotion, that enchants us, that is artistic, ... etc.
We want to express a sort of non-logical feeling in language.
In this session, we would like to focus on both theories and (computational)
models to deal with language sense.
Especially, we would like to focus on the following topics.
other topics are welcome, if they are related to human language (KOTOBA).
- Affective computing.
- Analysis of effects of words in various field like advertisement.
- Analysis of language sense in the society.
- Cognitive model of artistic creation.
- Cognitive model of understanding of language sense.
- Computational inspiration by Words.
- Computational models for a generation of literature.
- Computational models for dealing with language sense.
- Word-plays on computers or internet
- Visualised effects of Words
- Design of Words (e.g. Catching copies for advertisement etc.)
- Information design
- Language sense for communication.
- Theories for a generation of literature.
- Theories for dealing with language sense.
