2nd Call for Papers - DGfS 2013 Workshop on the Visualization of
Linguistic Patterns

*** Workshop at the Annual Meeting of the German Linguistics Society
(DGfS) ***

https://github.com/tmayer/vis/wiki/Workshop

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With the availability of large amounts of electronic corpora, the
computational analysis of natural language allows for the search of
linguistic patterns in a broad range of data. Yet the enormous amounts
of data make the detection of interesting patterns and possible
interactions a laborious and time-consuming task. The need to analyze
the interplay of a multitude of factors calls for an additional
component that renders potential patterns more easily accessible to the
human perception.

Although linguists have successfully employed visual representations in
some areas (e.g. spectrograms in phonetic research, tree diagrams for
syntactic and genealogical configurations and the widespread use of box
plots and other graphical descriptive techniques), there is enormous
potential for more sophisticated visualization techniques that enable
the researcher to investigate the information interactively. At the same
time, a well-designed visualization allows for a more detailed view of
individual aspects of potentially interesting patterns. The mapping of
relevant features to visual variables (rather than having them
represented by a host of numbers) thereby enhances the detection of
patterns by providing an at-a-glance overview over large amounts of data.

The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop is to bring together
linguists and visual analysts to provide an opportunity for fruitful
discussions on how language research that employs data-rich methods can
benefit from visualization techniques. The interest lies both in the
application of innovative visualization techniques to long-standing
problems in linguistics as well as in new areas or phenomena where
visual analyses have proven useful to either generate or confirm
hypotheses on the basis of the data.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
POSSIBLE TOPICS:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
- the (multifactorial) visual analysis of linguistic features
- the exploration of linguistic features in terms of integrating
geo-spatial locations with hierarchical (e.g. genealogical) information
- visualization of linguistic features with a temporal dimension (e.g.
language change)

For exemplary visualizations related to linguistic issues, see

IMPORTANT DATES:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Submission deadline: August 26th, 2012
Notification of acceptance: September 3rd, 2012

SUBMISSION DETAILS:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite submissions of anonymous abstracts for 30 min talks including
discussion. Submissions should not exceed one page, 11pt. single spaced
(abstract + references), with an optional additional page for images.
The reviewing process will be double-blind; therefore, please ensure
that the paper does not include the authors' names and affiliations.
Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g.,
"We previously showed (Smith, 1991)...", should be avoided. Instead, use
citations such as "Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991)...".

Please submit your abstracts to the following page:
