Meeting Description:

The language sciences increasingly have in common their adoption of rational probabilistic approaches, such as Bayesian, Information Theoretic, and Game Theoretic frameworks. The goal of this conference is to bring together speech and language researchers whose scientific contributions reflect the full diversity of disciplines and methodologies — from speech to discourse, on-line processing to corpus-based investigation, through to language change and evolution — that have benefited from, and share, such rational explanations.

Conference on Rational Approaches in Language Science (RAILS)

24-26 October, 2019
Saarbruecken, Germany

The language sciences increasingly have in common their adoption of rational probabilistic approaches, such as Bayesian, Information Theoretic, and Game Theoretic frameworks. The goal of this conference is to bring together speech and language researchers whose scientific contributions reflect the full diversity of disciplines and methodologies — from speech to discourse, on-line processing to corpus-based investigation, through to language change and evolution — that have benefited from, and share, such rational explanations.

Keynote Speakers:

- Gerhard Jaeger, Tuebingen University
- Gina Kuperberg, Tufts University
- Hannah Rohde, University of Edinburgh
- Rory Turnbull, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

We therefore seek submissions from across the language sciences — including speech science, theoretical linguistics, empirical linguistics, psycholinguistics and neuroscience, computational linguistics, as well as language development, change and evolution — which apply rational probabilistic explanations to linguistic phenomena, or bring novel experimental findings to bear on such accounts.

Submissions in the form of 400 word abstracts are to be submitted electronically:

Submissions open: 1 May
Submissions due: 1 June
Notification of acceptance: 1 July
Conference: October 24-26

Submission will be considered for either oral or poster presentation. More details on the submission format and procedure will be available soon from the conference web-page: rails.sfb1102.uni-saarland.de

Scientific and financial support for this conference comes from the Collaborative Research Center SFB1102 “Information Density and Linguistic Encoding”: sfb1102.uni-saarland.de
