 WORKSHOP IN COMPUTATIONALLY-INTENSIVE METHODS
 IN QUANTITATIVE LINGUISTICS

 Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute
 Department of Statistics 
 University of Glasgow, UK
 11, 12 September 1997

 EARLY REGISTRATION

Please note that the early registration deadline has been extended
until 30 June for this workshop. Payments received after this date
will be subject to a GBP50 increase in the registration fee. To
register, complete the form at
http://www.stats.gla.ac.uk/~cimql/regform.html, or download and
complete the text version (regform.txt).

Details of the workshop follow:

In recent years techniques from disciplines such as computer science,
articficial intelligence and statistics have found their way into the
pages of journals such as the Journal of Quantitative Linguistics,
Literary and Linguistic Computing and Computers and the
Humanities. While this influx may bring more advanced methods of
analysis to the fields of quantitative linguistics, stylometry and
stylistics, the demands upon researchers to understand and use these
new techniques are great. Familiarity with the appropriate software
and the ear of a sympathetic expert are pre-requisites without which
the technique may seem out of reach to the average researcher. The
Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute and the
Department of Statistics of the University of Glasgow are hence
supporting this practical workshop in Computationally-Intensive
Methods in Quantitative Linguistics.

The workshop is designed to introduce the participants to four such
techniques in a practical environment. Each half-day session will be
divided into an introductory session in a lecture theatre and a longer
period spent working with software and practical examples. All of the
speakers have published papers using the analyses they will present
and their aim in this workshop is to enable the participants to return
to their home institutions able to carry out these techniques in the
course of their own research.

The sessions and speakers are as follows:

Deconstructing texts with electronic dice: Monte Carlo methods in
 lexical statistics.
Harald Baayen; Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen,
 The Netherlands.

Fitting probability distributions to linguistic data. Deductive and
 explorative methods in synergetic linguistics.
Reinhard Koehler; University of Trier, Germany.

Evolutionary Computing and Text Categorization.
Richard Forsyth; University of the West of England, Bristol, 
 United Kingdom.

Neural Nets, Principal Component Analysis, Marlowe and Shakespeare.
Thomas Merriam; United Kingdom.

The workshop will be held in the Boyd Orr Building of the University
of Glasgow, commencing on Wednesday 10 September with a reception in
the Hunterian Art Gallery. The four workshop sessions will take place
on Thursday 11 September and Friday 12 September. There will also be a
half day to Loch Lomond and the Glen Goyne whisky distillery on the
morning of Saturday 13 September.

Accommodation has been arranged in university accommodation at a cost
of GBP17.45 including breakfast. Tea and coffee, lunches and evening
meals on 11 and 12 September, as well as a drinks reception on 10
September are included in the registration fee. The registration fee
is GBP150.00 and GBP100.00 for students.
