We describe how we are using natural language techniques to develop systems that can automatically encode a range of input materials for cognitive simulations. We start by summarizing this type of problem, and the components we are using. We then describe three projects that are using this common infrastructure: learning from multimodal materials, modeling decision making in moral dilemmas, and modeling conceptual change in development.
