Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 15-May-2016

Meeting Description:

Linguistics, like other scientific disciplines, is centrally reliant upon visual images for the elicitation, analysis and presentation of data. It is difficult to imagine how linguistics could have developed, and how it could be done today, without visual representations such as syntactic trees, psychophysical models, vocal tract diagrams, dialect maps, or spectrograms. With the emergence of new visualisation methods and technologies there is a renewed interest in the application of these techniques to the study of language.

In 2012, the University of York hosted the first AVML meeting, addressing a need within the academic community for a forum dedicated to sharing work in this emergent interdisciplinary space. After the success of this first meeting, The University of Tübingen then hosted AVML2014.

The UQ Node of the Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language at the University of Queensland is hosting ‘Advances in Visual Methods for Linguistics’ on September 26 – 28 2016.

The venue for the conference is The University of Queensland St Lucia Campus. Find more information here.

Registration fees will be $200 (faculty/industry) or $100 (student) for the 3 days which includes catering and a digital proceedings, and $50 for the conference banquet for interested attendees.

More information will be posted on over the coming weeks.
