JéTou2017 : 6th edition of Toulouse study days

JéTou2017 : VIe édition des journées d'études toulousaines

*  *  *

Published on Monday, August 08, 2016 by Céline Guilleux

Summary

La thématique choisie pour cette édition est celle des interfaces en sciences du langage. Sont accueillis tous travaux intégrant deux ou plusieurs disciplines scientifiques afin de répondre à une question linguistique. Ces travaux peuvent explorer les interfaces entre les différents niveaux de description linguistique théorique, l’interaction de la linguistique théorique avec d’autres disciplines des sciences du langage, ou entre les sciences du langage en général et d’autres disciplines scientifiques comme la psychologie, la neurologie, la sociologie, l’anthropologie, l’informatique, etc.

Argument

JéTou (Journées d'études Toulousaines) is an international conference for young researchers bringing together Master's and PhD students, as well as young researchers having defended their thesis less than 3 years ago, working in different areas of Linguistics.

The 6th edition is organized by PhD students from three research centers at the Toulouse University, France :

  • CLLE-ERSS (Équipe de Recherche en Syntaxe et Sémantique)
  • LERASS–CPST (Laboratoire d'Études et de Recherches Appliquées en Sciences Sociales – Communication, Pratiques, Sens, Textualités)
  • Octogone-Lordat (Centre Interdisciplinaire des Sciences du Langage et de la Cognition)

This 6th edition will be devoted to the topic "Interfaces in Linguistics".

Linguistics is becoming an increasingly interdisciplinary field of study. This is not surprising since different levels of language structure (syntax, prosody, morphology, etc) constantly interact, and language also interfaces with numerous other forms of human activity. The goal of the JéTou 2017 conference is to bring together young researchers working on different types of interdisciplinarity in and around linguistics. We therefore welcome all submissions that integrate two or more scientific subfields in order to address relevant linguistic issues. These works can explore the interfaces between different fields of theoretical linguistics (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, discourse), the interaction of theoretical linguistics with other language-related fields (language acquisition, language learning, language teaching, translation studies, semiology, etc.), or the interfaces between language studies in general and other sciences such as psychology, neuroscience, sociology, anthropology, computer science, etc.

The main focus of the conference will be on the works at the interface of:

  1. linguistics and computer science, 
  2. linguistics, psychology, and neuroscience, and 
  3. linguistics, language acquisition, language learning and language teaching.

However, any work that is interdisciplinary in nature will be given full consideration. Proposals combining theoretical considerations with work on linguistic data are particularly encouraged.

The list of possible domains includes, but is not limited to:

  • Cognition
  • Computational linguistics
  • Corpus linguistics
  • Discourse
  • Information Technologies
  • Language acquisition
  • Language learning
  • Language teaching
  • Lexicography
  • Lexicology
  • Literature
  • Morphology
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Neurolinguistics
  • Phonetics
  • Phonology
  • Pragmatics
  • Psycholinguistics
  • Semantics
  • Semiotics
  • Sociolinguistics
  • Speech disorders
  • Syntax
  • Terminology
  • Translation studies

The JéTou 2017 Conference calls for full paper submissions. A paper may be accepted for an oral presentation or a poster presentation. However, all accepted papers will be published in the same format in the conference proceedings. Additionally, we will be awarding prizes for the best oral presentation and the best poster.

In sum, the JéTou 2017 conference proposes a relevant present–day topic with the goal of opening new perspectives for interdisciplinary research and collaboration. The conference will be an excellent occasion to ask questions, discuss issues and exchange ideas between peers.

Invited speakers

  • Audrey Bürki, Perception et Production de la Parole, Université de Genève (Genève, Suisse)
  • Marie Lallier, BCBL, Basque center on Cognition, Brain and Language (Donostia, Espagne)

Submission Guidelines

We expect full papers of up to 8 pages, including a maximum of 2 pages of references (LaTeX, Word and OpenOffice templates can be found on the site). Papers may be written in French or in English and should include a title and at most 5 kewords. The deadline is Sunday November 6th, 2016.

Papers can be submitted online, in PDF format, via the Easychair platform.

Depending on the evaluations from the scientific committee, papers will be selected for an oral presentation (20 min + 10 min of questions) or for a poster session. The authors can indicate their preference for a given presentation format at submission time.

All accepted papers will be published in the same format in the conference proceedings.

Acceptance criteria

Each submission will be reviewed by at least two specialists. Submissions will be assessed in particular regarding:

  • The importance and originality of the contribution;
  • The scientific value of the content;
  • The critical discussion of the results, particularly in relation to existing work in the field;
  • The clarity of writing;
  • The relevance to the conference topic.
