The aim of this workshop (http://www.ling.su.se/om-oss/evenemang/workshops-och-konferenser/computing-learning-schematizing-and-typologizing-constructions-1.123663) is to gather together researchers in Stockholm and vicinity who use the theoretical notion of construction in their work. The expected outcome is that by sharing our perspectives, we will arrive at a better understanding of the concept and possibly also find ways for further collaboration and new projects.
