MFM24 Fringe meeting: Computation and Learnability in Phonology

From Giorgio Magri (e-mail)

Computation and learnability play an increasing important role in phonological theory with many recent developments moving along different lines of research. The fringe workshop of the MFM in 2016 will therefore try to make the point on the role of computation and learnability in phonological theory.

Call for papers:
We invite 45 minute presentations that review some computational or learnability technique, approach, paradigm, or coherent set of results relevant to the phonological community. The goal of the meeting is to provide computational tutorials rather than to present original research results. Practicalities:
— One page abstract
— Submission deadline: February 12, 2016 (same as MFM)
— Abstract submission by email to the organizers (see below)
— Author notifications by early March 2016

It is free to attend the workshop, and no registration is necessary — you can simply turn up on the day.

When and where:
— the afternoon of Wednesday 25th May 2016
— at the University of Manchester (close to Hulme Hall, where the MFM will be held; more details available soon)
