Meeting Description:

QMM1 will provide a forum for research on quantitative approaches to the description and analysis of morphological phenomena in natural language. The term 'morphology' is construed broadly, covering all types of form variation. The class of quantitative approaches is equally broad, including (but not limited to):

- Information-theoretic approaches, discriminative and Bayesian learning models,
- Simulation-based approaches, connectionist models, vector-based semantic models, etc.

The meeting will consist of a two-day conference on quantitative approaches to morphology, followed by three days of tutorials devoted to topics, methods and tools relevant to current quantitative models.
