Blue apple

In the Language and Perception research group we are looking at formal and distributional models (and anything in between) of language used by situated agents interacting with each other and with the physical world around them through action and perception. We investigate areas such representations of meaning in computational approaches to language, action, and perception, for example of spatial descriptions, generations and interpretation of scene description, multi-modal communication, situated dialogue systems, and other.

Members of the group:


  • Simon Dobnik (group leader)
  • Robin Cooper
  • Staffan Larsson
  • Shalom Lappin
  • Christine Howes
  • Ellen Breitholtz
  • Sharid LoĆ”iciga

PhD students:

  • Bill Noble

The group runs a bi-weekly reading group.

It offers two standing PhD courses:

In 2018 we also organised (together with the Dialogue group) Workshop on Dialogue and Perception. For more details, please see here.
