Quantifying Semantic-Orthographic Regularities Across Languages

Munich, Germany
7-9 October 2024

We are organizing the International Meeting on Quantifying Semantic-Orthographic Regularities Across Languages ​​(QuaSemO, 2024) in Munich this year with a fantastic speaker lineup:

Dr. Simona Amenta, University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy

Prof. Kevin Brown, Oregon State University, USA

Dr. Dave Kenneth Tayao Cayado, Queen Mary University of London, UK

Dr. Davide Crepaldi, Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati, Trieste, Italy

Dr. Katrina Dulay, City, University of London, UK

Prof. Dušica Filipović Đurđević, University of Belgrade, Serbia

Dr. Fritz Günther, Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany

Dr. Jana Hasenäcker, University of Erfurt, Germany

Prof. Jay Rueckl, University of Connecticut, USA

Dr. Olivera Savic, Basque Center on Cognition, Brain & Language (BCBL), Spain

Dr. Noam Siegelman, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel



Words contain regularities. The extent to which the orthographic structure conveys information about the meaning of words differs between languages. In this meeting, we will discuss how readers can grasp information about the meaning of words, even if they do not know the word. We bring together interdisciplinary experts in psycholinguistics, complex system scientists, and educators to discuss how to quantify the differences between languages. It is a valuable platform for establishing cross-linguistic behavioral studies on quantitative orthographic-semantic research across the globe. We invite you to join us and contribute to the fruitful discussion on the regularities between semantics and orthography in different languages.


Abstract submission and registration deadline: May 15, 2024
