Following the success of previous
QUALICO conferences, organised by International Quantitative Linguistics Association
(IQLA), we invite contributions on all aspects of quantitative linguistics and text
analysis. The main topic of the conference is: Information in language: coding,
extraction and applications.
Final Call for Papers:
conference of quantitative linguistics QUALICO 2018 will be held in Wroclaw
(Poland), July 5-8, 2018.
We are waiting for your submissions!
are some news:
1) To satisfy your requests, the Organizing Committee has
decided to extend the abstract submission deadline till February 28, 2018 11:59 pm

In the case of the participants who need visas, we will accelerate the
review process in order to leave enough time for administrative procedures.
2) We are happy to inform you that a pre-conference workshop and a competition
in mathematical linguistics will be held on the 3-4 July. Any questions regarding
the workshop and the competition should be sent to Michał Śliwiński at
Participation in both the workshop and the competition is free of charge.

invite you to participate.
3) We are happy to inform you that we have
received the funding from the city of Wrocław for an exhibition accompanying QUALICO
2018 conference. This exhibition will present an outline history of the
collaboration between mathematicians and language scientists in Wrocław and in
Poland, conducting, among others, the early research on stylometry and 'Wrocław
taxonomy' (one of the first methods of multidimensional modelling developed for

We particularly encourage
- Descriptions of all aspects of language and text
phenomena, including psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, dialectology, pragmatics,
language typology, usage based approaches, etc., as far as they use quantitative
mathematical methods (probability theory, stochastic processes, differential and
difference equations, multidimensional analysis, fuzzy logics and set theory,
function theory, etc.)
- Applications of methods, models, or findings from
quantitative linguistics to problems of natural language processing, text
classification, stylistics, authorship attribution, language teaching, information
retrieval, scientometrics, bibliometrics, text mining, language complexity and
complex network analysis
- Methods of linguistic measurement, model
construction, sampling and test theory
- Epistemological issues such as
explanation of language and text phenomena, contributions to theory construction,
systems theory, philosophy of science
Presentations should be in English.
Each paper will be allotted 30 minutes (20 minutes presentation + 10 minutes
discussion). There will also be a poster session and a round table session.
Abstracts in English not exceeding 500 words (including key words and
