Quasy 2019 is a workshop on the quantitative syntax that will take place on August 26 in Paris. The workshop welcomes all kinds of quantitative approaches to syntax although it takes advantage of the momentum of statistical research on dependency syntax. Quasy 2019 responds to the growing need for linguistic meetings dedicated to quantitative syntax analysis that is based on empirical data. The meeting is held under the auspices of the International Quantitative Linguistics Association (IQLA).
Quasy will be one of the 4 events of the Paris Syntax Fest (August 26-30).
- Depling : The Conference on Dependency Linguistics (August 27-28)
- TLT : The 18th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (August 28-29)
- UDW : The Universal Dependencies Workshop (August 29-30)
The idea of Quasy originated during the conference dinner of Depling 2017 in Pisa, where Xinying Chen, Jan Macutek, Radek Cech & Kim Gerdes, while sitting on the same table, thought of a closer and mutually enriching relationship between the IQLA and Depling. At some point, Quasy appeared as a quantitative branch of Depling. Kim Gerdes coined the name of the meeting.
