Logic, Neural Networks, and Optimality Theory
Workshop Berlin, July 23-25, 2003
Jägerstraße 10-11, 10117 Berlin (Mitte), Room 006
Organizers: Anton Benz (Berlin), Reinhard Blutner (Amsterdam), Helen de Hoop
The primary aim of this workshop is to talk about foundational issues of OT including the connection to connectionism and some aspects of evolutionary grounding and stochastic OT. The secondary intention of this workshop is to collect and to discuss ideas for a bigger project proposal. The organization of this workshop was financially supported by the ZAS project group "Bidirectional Optimality Theory" (Berlin), the PIONIER Project "Case Cross-Linguistically" (University of Nijmegen), and the NWO preliminary grant "Logic, Neural Networks, and Optimality Theory" (University of Amsterdam).
Possible themes (this is not an exhaustive list):(A) Founding aspects of OT within a connectionist setting
