“Discourse, Multimodality and Experimental Methods: Discourse Processing using Eye Tracking Technology”
(Heidelberg 23rd – 26th October, 2017)
It is with great pleasure that we announce the First International Workshop “Discourse, Multimodality and Experimental Methods: Discourse Processing using Eye Tracking Technology” to be held in Heidelberg, Germany on October 23rd – 26th, 2017.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide a venue for novice researchers (PhD students and junior researchers) to promote the exchange of ideas on the theoretical and epistemological foundations of empirical approaches in Linguistics and Psycholinguistics, as well as on the latest developments regarding the cognitive processes involved during discourse comprehension and production.
The event will be organized around a series of lectures and practical workshops offered by renown and experienced researchers in the following areas:
a. Discourse Markers
c. Discourse Processing Models
d. First and Second Language Acquisition
e. Experiment Design and Statistics
All workshops and lectures will be offered in English.
The event will be held at the Internationalen Wissenschaftsforum Heidelberg (IWH).
