Linguistic Field(s): Discipline of Linguistics

Call Deadline: 10-May-2019

Meeting Description:

The 2019 edition of the MMSYM Symposium zooms in on the theme of Multimodal Interaction, with a specific focus on corpus-based and experimental approaches to multimodal interaction in spoken and signed language. Recent corpus-linguistic as well as experimental work has provided evidence for multimodal patterns in face-to-face communication as the most basic form of human interaction. The MMSYM aims to provide a forum for this particular line of research.

Call for Papers:

Deadline extended until 10 May, 2019

Topics:

The 2019 edition of the MMSYM Symposium zooms in on the theme of Multimodal Interaction, with a specific focus on corpus-based and experimental approaches to multimodal interaction in spoken and signed language.
