Meeting Description:

Roma Tre University, together with the University of Pisa and the University of Bologna, announces the International Conference ''Word Formats and Lexical Combinations. Structures, extraction methods and lexicographic representations.''

The event will take place on 29-30 January 2016, in Rome. The conference is organized as the final step of the PRIN Project entitled ''Word Combinations in Italian: theoretical and descriptive analysis, computational models, lexicographic layout and creation of a dictionary,'' funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR).

The conference aims at promoting the interaction and collaboration among researchers interested in the analysis of the word (syntagmatic structure, types and nature) as well as in the study of word combinations (combinatorial structure, types and nature). The conference is also targeted at creating an international forum for the presentation and discussion of the most recent lexicographical and computational methods for the study of lexicon.

Several experts at home and abroad will be invited, and the discussion will cover a wide range of fields, including lexicology, lexicography and computational linguistics. The conference programme includes three plenary sessions and the contributions of the members of the PRIN research group.

Invited speakers:

- Vincenzo Lo Cascio (University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
- Elena de Miguel Aparicio (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid)
- Alain Polguère (TILF - CNRS / Université de Lorraine)
