First International Workshop on Quantitative Syntax

Paris, August 26, 2019

www.quasy-2019.webnode.com

Quasy will be one of the 4 events of the Paris Syntax Fest (August 26-30).

https://syntaxfest.github.io/syntaxfest19/

FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

WORKSHOP AIMS

Quantitative syntax analysis benefits from the thriving of structured
language data in the (computational) linguistics field and the growing
popularity of statistical methods inside the linguistic community.
Despite the rapid development of Corpus and Treebanks, the linguistic
potential of combining such structured data with statistical methods
remains unexplored. Quasy 2019 responds to the growing need for
linguistic meetings dedicated to quantitative syntax analysis and
theorizing that is based on empirical data.. The meeting is held under
the auspices of the International Quantitative Linguistics Association
(IQLA).

WORKSHOP TOPICS

Topics include but are not limited to :

- Descriptions of all aspects of syntax related phenomena,
including but not limited to psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics,
language typology, language acquisition, stylometry, translation,
etc., as far as they use quantitative methods based on empirical
language data ;
- Methods to explore and analyze corpora, treebanks or any
other empirical data which serve syntax analysis ;
- Theoretical studies based on syntax data (hypothesis testing) ;
- Investigations into interrelations among syntactic factors ;
- Discussions about linguistic units or the impact of
annotation styles in syntax analysis ;
- Syntactic structures (tree structures, valency
structures,...) and their distributions ;
- Syntax modeling and its applications ;
- Word order investigations ;

PAPER SUBMISSION INFORMATION

Papers should describe original work ; they should emphasize completed
work rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state
of completion of the reported results. Submissions will be judged on
correctness, originality, technical strength, significance and
relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format through the SyntaxFest
EasyChair site (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=syntaxfest2019).

On the submission page, authors submit their paper only once for the
whole SyntaxFest, composed of 4 conferences, but they can uncheck
conferences they do not wish their paper to be considered for. If the
paper is deemed appropriate for more than one of the selected
conferences, the SyntaxFest joint organization committee decides on
the final placement of the paper, which implies the day of the
presentation and the proceedings the paper will appear in.

We invite two types of submissions : Long papers and short papers. Long
papers may consist of up to 10 pages of content (excluding
references). Short papers may consist of up to 6 pages of content
(excluding references).

All submissions should follow the one-column format and the style
guidelines. Submissions will have to be in LaTeX, OpenDocument, or
Microsoft Word templates created for the SyntaxFest 2019. These
materials will be provided later on. Reviewing of papers will be
double-blind. Therefore, the paper must not include the authors’ names
and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the
author’s identity, e.g., "We previously showed (Zeng, 2018) ...", must
be avoided. Instead, use citations such as "Zeng (2018) previously
showed ...". Papers that do not conform to these requirements will be
rejected without review.

CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

Quasy Proceedings will be published in the ACL Anthology
