Big Data: New opportunities and challenges in language acquisition research, 04-Mar-2015 - 04-Mar-2015, Leipzig, Germany

Language acquisition research on topics ranging from phonological processing to semantic knowledge has been built on meticulous examination of small data sets, such as case studies. While we have learned a lot from such careful work, some limitations quickly became evident. A new horizon has opened as bigger, open data sets began to emerge. Early examples are the CHILDES and the MCDI projects. Today, new technologies pave the way to some much needed cross-linguistic extensions, for instance, via automatic annotation of day-long audio(-video) recordings in seldom described languages. It also becomes possible to include other linguistic levels (e.g., receptive knowledge through open repositories of experimental results).

Economics, Linguistic Justice and Language Policy, 2-3 March 2015, Berlin, Germany

The range of problems raised by diversity of languages in international economic and political integration processes calls upon innovative, efficient and fair language policies to manage multilingualism. Language policies are increasingly acknowledged as being a necessary component of many decisions taken in the areas of labour mobility, access to knowledge and higher education, social inclusion of migrants, and they can affect companies’ international competitiveness and the democratic control of international organisations.

First International Conference on the Sociolinguist impact of migration. 25-26 September, Rapallo, Italy

The Conference brings together scholars working on both the empirical and theoretical challenges posed to sociolinguistics by recent global migratory phenomena. The sociolinguistics of immigration is a relevant multidisciplinary field of language investigation.

The focus of attention is - on the one hand - on how immigration can contribute to phenomena of language spread and/or diaspora, language contact, language variation and change, and - on the other hand - on the development of mixed, hybrid patterns of language use and identities.
