About

To conclude RefNet, we held a day and a half of round-table discussions in which we opened up the discussion beyond reference, to a wider range of issues relevant to computational models of human language comprehension and production. The event took place at the King’s College Campus in Aberdeen, Scotland, on 15 and 16 January, 2016.

The event was organized by Matt Dennis (University of Aberdeen), Kees van Deemter (University of Aberdeen) and Ellen Gurman Bard (University of Edinburgh).

About RefNet

The EPSRC RefNet network project was funded to encourage cross-disciplinary communication between psychologists, linguists, and computer scientists around computational models of referring. RefNet’s events have focussed on cross-disciplinary understanding and training, such as PRE-CogSCi, Berlin 2013, RefNet Summer School, Edinburgh 2014 and RefNet Workshop, Edinburgh 2014.
