Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: Sociolinguistics & Network Games
Workshop at ESSLLI 2014, University of Tübingen

The Workshop 'Sociolingiostics and Network Games' provides a platform of new research on computational models of language use, language change and language contact. It focuses computational and simulation models of artificial multi-agent societies, particularly models that combine (i) techniques from network theory to build and analyze artificial social environments and (ii) decision/game theory to model (linguistic) behavior of its members. With this workshop we want to give a forum for the presentation and discussion of different research directions considering the application of network theory, computer simulations, and/or game theory in linguistic domains.
