Meeting Description: Visualization as a means of illustration has a long tradition in linguistics. Consider, for example, tree graphs for the representation of syntactic interpretations, maps to display isoglosses and keyword-in-context representations of corpus query results. With the advent of corpora with billions of words and the establishment of statistical, corpus linguistic methods and the possibility to dovetail quantitative analysis with qualitative interpretive analysis to an ideally iterative empirical-hermeneutic process, the subject has recently received a new relevance and today provides for linguistics both a great development opportunity and a great challenge.

The conference Visual Linguistics wants to face this challenge. Its aim is to present a wide range of visualization approaches in linguistics and related disciplines in the digital humanities and to discuss them in particular with regard to their integration into methodologies and their role in the process of gaining new scientific insights. The spectrum of the invited contributions encompasses the whole range from history of science and meta-theoretical considerations up to concrete applications, implementations and techniques.
