Workshop on Computational Phonology and Morphology


Saturday, July 11, 2015

At the LSA Summer Institute at the University of Chicago


Among the key questions in phonology and morphology are those that revolve
around representation, distribution, learning, typology, variation, and
change. Recent years have witnessed an increased interest in computational
approaches (broadly construed, encompassing all species of formal,
algorithmic, and quantitative methods) to phonology and morphology. How
have they contributed to our understanding of language, particularly with
regard to the domains of phonology and morphology? What are the unsolved
issues in phonology and morphology on which computational approaches may
shed light? Along the theme of big data of the 2015 LSA Summer Institute at
the University of Chicago, how does---or not---the availability of larger
and more accessible data alter the landscape of research among phonologists
and morphologists, and what are the (new) challenges in light of big data?

The Workshop on Computational Phonology and Morphology, to be held on
Saturday July 11, 2015, at the LSA Summer Institute at the University of
Chicago, is devoted to these topics and questions of general interest to
linguists, featuring invited talks by Institute instructors whose research
concerns phonology and morphology from computational perspectives.


Institute instructors who have confirmed participation:

John Goldsmith
Sharon Goldwater
Jeffrey Heinz
Karen Livescu
Giorgio Magri
Sravana Reddy
Jason Riggle
Paul Smolensky
Andrew Wedel


We invite abstract submissions for the poster session at the Workshop.
Papers that address the topics and questions of the Workshop as described
above and/or report novel research and results in computational phonology
and morphology would be highly welcome.

Abstract guidelines:

-- Letter or A4 sized, 1-inch margins, font size 10 points min.
-- One page maximally, with everything included (prose, figures,
references, etc.)
-- Please include the paper title at the top of the abstract.
-- Abstracts must be anonymous.
-- Abstract submissions are limited to one individual and one joint
abstract per author, or two joint abstracts per author.
-- Abstracts are submitted via the EasyAbs site here:
-- Abstracts must be submitted by Friday, June 12, 2015.
