New Horizons in Linguistics

A one-day symposium

Thursday 20th September, 2007 from 10:30am till 5:30pm

Oxford e-Research Centre, 7 Keble Road, Oxford, OX1 3QG

Call For Participation

Across the Sciences and the Humanities, the emerging e-Science agenda is set to
transform how researchers do their work, how they collaborate, how they share
data, how they report their findings, and what infrastructure they require.

This event is organised by the 'Digital Record' node of the National Centre for
e-Social Science, the Oxford e-Research Centre, the Oxford Text Archive, the
School of English Studies at the University of Nottingham, and the Arts and
Humanities Data Service.

Researchers from all areas of linguistics and applied linguistics are invited to
attend the symposium. There is no cost to attend, but you are requested to
register in advance, by Friday 14th September 2007. Please email your name and
institution (as you would like it to appear on a badge) to infooerc.ox.ac.uk,
with the subject line 'New Horizons in Linguistics'. Lunch will be provided free
of charge to registered participants.

Call For Short Position Papers

We would also like to invite the submission of short position papers in which
researchers can describe current or proposed research, or problems, which make
use of Grid infrastructures, methods or technologies. Please send a short (250
word) summary of your paper. There will be a session at the symposium for 15
minute presentations of the papers, plus time for questions and discussion.
Please send summaries to martin.wynneoucs.ox.ac.uk. Please note that there will
be very limited space on the program for these presentations, and it is hoped
that if you submit one and it is not accepted, you will still be prepared to
come along and take part in the discussion at the symposium.
