Meeting Description:

Given that there are always lots of phonologists in Manchester the day before the Manchester Phonology Meeting (the 'MFM') starts, there is often a workshop on a topic related to phonological theory. This workshop is intended to be a relatively informal venue for discussion and is not part of the MFM -- it's just taking advantage of the timing of the MFM to set up a workshop, and everyone is welcome to attend.

The topic of the 2016 MFM FRINGE workshop is Computation and Learnability in Phonology.

Computation and learnability continue to play an important role in phonological theory with many recent developments moving along different lines of research. The fringe workshop of the Manchester Phonology Meeting (the 'MFM') in 2016 will therefore be devoted to computation and learnability in phonology.

Call for Abstracts:

The topic of the 2016 MFM FRINGE workshop is Computation and Learnability in Phonology.
We invite 45 minute presentations that review some computational or learnability technique, approach, paradigm, or coherent set of results relevant to the phonological community. The goal of the meeting is to provide computational tutorials rather than to present original research results.
