 The Setting up of Observables in Linguistics

Young researchersEuro(tm) conference - Nanterre, France - April 29 &
30, 2004

The young researchers of Mod�le, Dynamique, Corpus (UMR 7114 CNRS -
Universit� Paris-X Nanterre) research team, are organizing a young
researchers' conference, scheduled for April 29 and 30, 2004, at Paris
X-Nanterre Universit� campus.

The setting up of observables in linguistics is the central topic of
this conference, i.e. defining and making use of both attested and
constructed data. Young researchers from all fields and domains of
linguistics are, therefore, invited to submit a paper. Postgraduate,
Ph. D. and postdoc students are invited to provide useful insights and
experience on their respective research areas.

Communications addressing methodological and theoretical issues
related to the process of setting up linguistic data, as well as data
collection and utilization are expected. For example, communications
addressing one of the following issues are expected:
- Relevance and selection of linguistic data;
- Corpora and emerging linguistic phenomena;
- Oral, written or signed data collection methodology and practice;
- Questions related to corpora related tools, transcription and
- The use and place of quantitative methods, both generic and
- Qualitative methods;
- Language, text genres or discourse comparison.

Each conference session will start by an invited speakerEuro(tm)s
talk. A roundtable will be held at the end of the
conference. Communications should last 20 minutes, followed by 10
minutes for questions.

The deadline for proposals is set on January 26, 2004. Communication
proposals will be evaluated anonymously by the scientific
committee. Authors are invited to send two separate files, in Word
format: first a two pages long summary (3000 signs) of their
communication, second a file stating the authors' names, e-mail
address, affiliation, together with the title of their
communication. Authors may also state their preference regarding the
format of their communication: oral, or poster. Communications will be
evaluated according to a range of selection criterions, favoring those
papers which fully address the issue stated above, which show
methodological relevance and scientific interest, and which state
their point clearly.

Communication proposals, as well as other requests should be addressed
to: <>, or by postal mail, to the
following address:
