Meeting Description:

Quantitative Investigations in Theoretical Linguistics (QITL) offers a forum
for researchers approaching problems in theoretical linguistics from a
quantitative point of view. The conference offers a platform for diverse
areas of linguistics, from phonology through morphology, syntax, semantics
or pragmatics, in both corpus-based, psycholinguistic/experimental or
computational methodologies approaching problems in grammar, first and
second language acquisition, historical linguistics and more.

Final Call for Papers

Quantitative models of linguistic phenomena have been increasingly
informing linguistic theory by testing, confirming and falsifying linguists'
hypotheses, and translating their insights into language based applications.
Despite this, the divide between theoretical linguistics and empirical
research remains substantial, with many theories being expressed in terms
that are not conducive to data-based testing, and conversely, the
appearance of a variety of data-based studies and applications with no
adequate theory to frame and explain their results.

Quantitative Investigations in Theoretical Linguistics (QITL) offers a forum
for researchers who aim to bridge this gap from any linguistic discipline or
methodology, and in particular, but not limited to:

- Quantitative corpus based studies
- Psycholinguistics
- Computational linguistics / NLP
- Historical linguistics
- Lexicography
- Second language acquisition / applied linguistics
- First language acquisition

The fourth conference (QITL-4) is set to take place at Humboldt University
in Berlin, between 28-31 March 2011. We invite researchers to submit
abstracts of approx. 500-1000 words (not including references and figures
or tables) for 30 minute talks with 10 minutes additional discussion or a
poster presentation (please specify your preferred format). Please send all
submissions to qitl4lists.hu-berlin.de electronically by:
