Meeting Description:

Visualization as a means of illustration has a long tradition in linguistics. Consider, for example, tree graphs for the representation of syntactic interpretations, maps to display isoglosses and keyword-in-context representations of corpus query results. With the advent of corpora with billions of words and the establishment of statistical, corpus linguistic methods and the possibility to dovetail quantitative analysis with qualitative interpretive analysis to an ideally iterative empirical-hermeneutic process, the subject has recently received a new relevance and today provides for linguistics both a great development opportunity and a great challenge.

The conference Visual Linguistics wants to face this challenge. Its aim is to present a wide range of visualization approaches in linguistics and related disciplines in the digital humanities and to discuss them in particular with regard to their integration into methodologies and their role in the process of gaining new scientific insights. The spectrum of the invited contributions encompasses the whole range from history of science and meta-theoretical considerations up to concrete applications, implementations and techniques.

Call for Papers:

The three-day event is aimed at an audience from the disciplines of linguistics, corpus linguistics, digital humanities, computational linguistics, and related subjects. Possible contributions are talks, posters and live demos. The contributions will be peer reviewed by the program committee. Travel grants covering travel and accommodation will be offered to all accepted presenters.

The conference key topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Theory of scientific visualization and diagrammatics
- New challenges of visualizations in the domains of digital humanities and linguistics
- Methods and techniques of visualizations in linguistics and digital humanities
- Traditional forms of visualizations in linguistics

To contribute please submit an abstract of 400 to 500 words in English or German. The abstract has to be in PDF format and must not contain any author names. Please send the abstract until June 30, 2014 to the address symposiumvisual-linguistics.net adding the following information to the message body of your email:
