1) Observations and descriptions of all aspects of language
and text phenomena, including the areas of
psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, linguistic typology,
stylistics, etc. as far as they use quantitative
mathematical methods (probability theory, stochastic
processes, differential and difference equations, fuzzy
logics and set theory, function theory etc.), on all levels
of linguistic analysis.

2) Applications of methods, models, or findings from
quantitative linguistics to problems of natural language
processing, machine translation, language teaching,
documentation and information retrieval - especially in the
form of automated systems of different kinds (automated
systems for scientific research, expert systems, electronic
dictionaries, parsing systems, controlled large text corpora

3) Methodological problems of linguistic measurement,
model construction, sampling and test theory.

4) Epistemological issues such as explanation of language
and text phenomena, contributions to theory construction,
systems theory, philosophy of science.

REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBMISSION: Papers should be either topical
papers (maximum six pages in final format) or project notes
with demonstration (maximum four pages), preferably in
English. Both should describe original work.The project note
