Linguistic Field(s): Writing Systems

Meeting Description:

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers with a
variety of backgrounds including archaeology/epigraphy, comparative
history, Indology and computational linguistics, with a common interest in
scripts and writing systems. We want to address the following questions,
with reference to concrete examples:

How do you know when you have a writing system?
How do you know when you have a decipherment?

We ask that people intending to attend the Workshop on Scripts,
Non-scripts and (Pseudo)Decipherment at Stanford on July 11 please register
via the Workshop webpage. Registration is free, but we need people to
register so that we can have an idea of attendance.
