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: The purpose of the joint workshop is to bring together researchers interested in applying computational techniques to problems in morphology, phonology, and phonetics and researchers interested in applying finite-state methods to problems in natural language processing.

One of the missions of SIGMORPHON is to encourage interaction between work in computational linguistics and work in theoretical phonetics, phonology and morphology, and to ensure that each of these fields profits from the interaction. Recent SIGMORPHON meetings have been successful in this regard, and we hope to see this continue in 2014. Similarly, SIGFSM aims to bolster interaction and exchange between computational linguistics, theoretical linguistics, and theoretical computer science.

This 1-day workshop, endorsed by both SIGMORPHON and SIGFSM, is a strong step towards establishing a meeting point where these communities learn from each other's experience, exchange ideas, and follow the advances in research groups working on different but related fields.

This workshop will be the thirteenth meeting of SIGMORPHON (formerly called SIGPHON) and an off-year event for SIGFSM. It will be a full-day workshop consisting of invited presentations, contributed presentations, and a special panel session on open problems.

The workshop will be held on June 27, 2014 immediately after the ACL 2014 meeting at Marriott Waterfront, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

Keynote Speaker:

Jason Eisner (Johns Hopkins University) agreed to give the keynote speech.
