International Quantitative Linguistics Conference, 2018.
Call for papers
Deadline: 30 January 2018
International Quantitative Linguistics Conference. July 5-8, Wroclaw, Poland
Following the success of previous QUALICO conferences, organised by International Quantitative Linguistics Association (IQLA), we invite contributions on all aspects of quantitative linguistics and text analysis. The main topic of the conference is:
Information in language: coding, extraction and applications.
We particularly encourage submissions on:
descriptions of all aspects of language and text phenomena, including psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, dialectology, pragmatics, language typology, usage based approaches, etc., as far as they use quantitative mathematical methods (probability theory, stochastic processes, differential and difference equations, multidimensional analysis, fuzzy logics and set theory, function theory, etc.);
applications of methods, models, or findings from quantitative linguistics to problems of natural language processing, text classification, stylistics, authorship attribution, language teaching, information retrieval, scientometrics, bibliometrics, text mining, language complexity and complex network analysis;
methods of linguistic measurement, model construction, sampling and test theory;
epistemological issues such as explanation of language and text phenomena, contributions to theory construction, systems theory, philosophy of science.
Presentations should be in English. Each paper will be allotted 30 minutes (20 minutes presentation + 10 minutes discussion). There will also be a poster session and a round table session.
Abstracts in English not exceeding 500 words (including key words and references) should be submitted not later than January 30, 2018 (EasyChair abstract submission will close January 30, 2018 11:59:59 pm GMT).
