|Meeting Description:||Following the success of DETEC 2013 in Tübingen and DETEC 2015 at the University of Alberta, Edmonton (Canada), we are pleased to announce DETEC 2017.
Where: The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
When: Monday June 26-Tuesday June 27 (2017). (Note this is right after the X-Prag workshop held in Cologne, June 21-23)
Studies on discourse processing indicate that natural language interpretation is expectation-driven. Even though it is uncontroversial that both linguistic (e.g. lexical items, morpho-syntactic constructions, prosody) and extra-linguistic factors (e.g. world knowledge, speaker/hearer knowledge) are used to anticipate how discourse is likely to continue, the nature of their interplay is a topic of ongoing research. DETEC approaches this topic in an interdisciplinary fashion by comparing theoretical, experimental, and computational perspectives.
