Meeting Description: 

The Linguistics Research Unit of the Institute of Language and Communication will be hosting a workshop on ‘Measuring linguistic complexity: A multidisciplinary perspective’ on Friday 24 April, 2015.
The main objective of the workshop is to bring together specialists from a number of different but related fields to discuss the construct of linguistic complexity and how it is typically measured in their respective research fields. 

The event will be structured around keynote presentations by four distinguished scholars:

- Philippe Blache (CNRS & Universite d'Aix-Marseille, France) : Linguistic complexity in psycholinguistics
- Alex Housen (Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium) : Linguistic complexity in second language acquisition
- Advaith Siddharthan (University of Aberdeen, UK) : Linguistic complexity in natural language processing and text simplification studies
- Benedikt Szmrercsanyi (KULeuven, Belgium) : Linguistic complexity in contrastive linguistics and typology

Details about the event will be made available on the workshop website http://www.uclouvain.be/en-linguistic-complexity.html in February 2015 

The number of participants is limited. Participation is free of charge but registration is required (via our registration form available on the website as of February 2015).
