The International Quantitative Linguistics Association (IQLA) announces the next 



20th anniversary of IQLA and Journal of Quantitative Linguistics (JQL) 


to be held in Olomouc (Czech Republic), May 29th ‐ June 1st,  2014. Submissions on all aspects of quantitative linguistics and text analysis are welcome. We particularly encourage submissions on: 

• Descriptions of all aspects of language and text phenomena, including psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, dialectology, pragmatics, language typology, usage based approaches, etc., as far as they use quantitative mathematical methods (probability theory, stochastic processes, differential and difference equations, fuzzy logics and set theory, function theory, etc.). 

• Applications of methods, models, or findings from quantitative linguistics to problems of natural language processing, text classification, stylistics, authorship attribution, machine translation, language teaching, information retrieval, language complexity and complex network analysis. 

• Methodological problems of linguistic measurement, model construction, sampling and test theory. 

• Epistemological issues such as explanation of language and text phenomena, contributions to theory construction, systems theory, philosophy of science.
