Oproep: LOT-populariseringsprijs 2019 - inzending tot 22 oktober 2018

Aan alle taalkundigen in Nederland

Ook dit jaar looft de Landelijke Onderzoekschool Taalwetenschap de Populariseringsprijs uit. Hiermee wil LOT stimuleren dat taalwetenschappelijke onderwerpen onder de aandacht van een groter publiek worden gebracht. Vanaf 2017 looft LOT ofwel een stimuleringsprijs, ofwel een oeuvreprijs uit. De omvang van de prijs bedraagt in beide gevallen 1000 euro.

De prijs van 2019 is een stimuleringsprijs. Deze is bedoeld voor wetenschappers verbonden aan een Nederlandse universiteit die incidenteel een populariseringsactiviteit ontwikkelen. De prijs is gericht op het helpen realiseren van zo’n populariseringsactiviteit, en is dus bedoeld voor nog niet gepubliceerde of gerealiseerde plannen. Voorbeelden zijn het maken van een korte video, een spel, of het schrijven van een populair-wetenschappelijk artikel.

Om in aanmerking te komen voor de prijs moet een plan worden voorgelegd aan de LOT-jury (2 tot 4 A4-tjes) met twee bijlagen: een financiële begroting en ondersteunend materiaal dat de link met het eigen onderzoek aantoont. Met de prijs van 1000 euro dient het plan te worden verwezenlijkt. Het resultaat/product wordt het jaar na de toekenning tijdens de Grote Taaldag gepresenteerd.

Iedere Nederlandse taalkundige onderzoeker kan maximaal één bijdrage ter beoordeling inzenden. De inzendingen worden beoordeeld door een jury die naast taalkundigen ook redacteuren van een dagblad of tijdschrift zal bevatten.

De uitslag zal bekend gemaakt worden op het Taalgala, een feestelijke bijeenkomst voor alle leden van LOT, AVT en Anéla. Op dezelfde dag wordt ook de AVT-Anéla dissertatieprijs uitgereikt. Het Taalgala vindt plaats in februari 2019 in Utrecht.

De sluitingsdatum voor inzending is 22 oktober 2018. Inzendingen mogen (o.v.v. LOT-populariseringsprijs) naar LOT@uu.nl of per post naar Trans 10, 3512 JK Utrecht. Het reglement is digitaal in te zien via deze link.

Namens het LOT-bestuur,
Henriette de Swart, Wetenschappelijk directeur

​Verhuizing van LOT naar de UvA

Met ingang van 1 januari 2019 verhuist LOT naar de UvA! De gezamenlijke decanen willen graag dat de landelijke onderzoekscholen rouleren langs de deelnemende universiteiten, en daarom komt er na vele jaren een einde aan de Utrechtse periode van LOT. De nieuwe LOT directeur wordt Prof. Dr. Kees Hengeveld van de UvA, hoogleraar Algemene Taalwetenschap. De oude en de nieuwe penvoerder van LOT zullen alles doen wat in hun vermogen ligt om de overgang soepel te laten verlopen, zodat de onderzoekers, PhD studenten en RM studenten zoveel mogelijk continuïteit ervaren. We kijken met enorme tevredenheid en waardering terug op alles wat Utrecht voor LOT heeft gedaan en betekend, en we verheugen ons op al het goeds dat het nieuwe Amsterdamse huis de landelijke taalwetenschappelijke gemeenschap te bieden heeft!

namens het LOT bestuur
Sjef Barbiers (voorzitter)

Scholen moeten toe naar een meertalige aanpak
https://www.nemokennislink.nl/publicaties/scholen-...
De manier waarop scholen omgaan met leerlingen met een migratieachtergrond, verschilt enorm binnen Europa. De universiteiten van Helsinki, Gent en Utrecht pleitten tijdens een congres in Rotterdam voor een meertalig perspectief waarbij docenten meer gebruikmaken van de taaldiversiteit in de klas.


Hoe veranderen sterke werkwoorden?
https://www.nemokennislink.nl/publicaties/hoe-vera...
In het Engels winnen verledentijdsvormen als ‘sunk’ en ‘stung’ het steeds vaker van vormen als ‘sank’ en ‘stang’. Hoe komt dat? Aan de hand van een wiskundige formule kunnen we meer vat krijgen op hoe onze hersenen talige patronen verwerken.


Hoe Franciscus Donders bewees dat denken tijd kost
https://www.nemokennislink.nl/publicaties/hoe-fran...
Het Donders Instituut viert dit jaar de 200ste geboortedag van Franciscus Donders, grondlegger van het cognitieve hersenonderzoek. Ter gelegenheid van dit jubileum herhaalde taalpsycholoog Ardi Roelofs het baanbrekende experiment waarmee Donders 150 jaar geleden aantoonde dat denken tijd kost. Hij gebruikte hierbij de originele stimuluslijsten uit de archieven van het Utrechtse Universiteitsmuseum.


'Maak gebruik van migrantentalen in het onderwijs'
https://www.nemokennislink.nl/publicaties/maak-geb...
Migranten die het Nederlands leren, hebben soms moeite met klanken of grammaticale aspecten die ze niet kennen uit hun moedertaal. En soms werkt hun talenkennis juist in hun voordeel. Utrechtse taalwetenschappers ontwikkelden een app met informatie over veelvoorkomende migrantentalen.

UiL OTS Colloquium, Utrecht University, September 20, 2018

Andrew Kehler
University of California San Diego
Conversational Eliciture


Whereas sentence (1a) states that the employee was fired and was embezzling money, it also strongly invites the inference that the employee was fired because of the embezzling. An analogous inference is lacking in (1b), however: one does not normally infer that the firing was caused by the employee’s hair color.
(1a) The boss fired the employee who was embezzling money. (1b) The boss fired the employee who has red hair
We posit that these inferences do not follow directly from the procedures that have been argued to underlie other sorts of pragmatic enrichment, such as from a violation of communicative (e.g., Gricean) norms based on principles of rationality/cooperativity (as in implicature), or the need to complete/expand a proposition so as to appropriately fix truth-conditional content (as in Bach's impliciture). We argue instead that they follow from more basic, general cognitive strategies for building mental models of the world that draw on types of experiential knowledge and cognitive principles that are known to be used to establish the coherence of passages across clauses. We brand the phenomenon as `eliciture', to capture the fact that a speaker, by choosing a particular form of reference, intends to elicit such inferences on the part of her hearer.

Do speakers produce discourse connectives rationally?

A number of different discourse connectives can be used to mark the same discourse relation, but it is still unclear what factors affect connective choice. A recent pragmatic account of language production and interpretation is the Rational Speech Acts theory, which predicts that speakers try to maximize the informativeness of an utterance such that the listener can interpret the intended meaning correctly. Existing prior work uses referential language games to test the rational account of speakers' production of concrete meanings, such as identification of objects within a picture. Building on the same paradigm, we designed a novel Discourse Continuation Game to investigate speakers' connective choice and listeners' interpretations. Analysis of the data reveals that the processing of discourse connectives is in line with the predictions of the RSA models: Speakers pragmatically prefer a more informative connective in ambiguous context; and the listeners, emulating speakers’ reasoning, assume speakers choose a more informative connective in ambiguous context when they interpret the discourse relation. However, we found that listeners’ reasoning is less straight-forward because contextual ambiguity has weaker effects on their interpretation of relation sense.

MPI formal colloquium 'Attention through Prediction: A Two-Stage Language Learning Mechanism' by Ruth de Diego-Balaguer, MPI, Nijmegen, September 25, 2018

MPI FORMAL COLLOQUIUM

Attention through Prediction: A Two-Stage Language Learning Mechanism

Ruth de Diego-Balaguer
(ICREA, University of Barcelona)

Abstract
Humans as other animals are predictive beings. When confronted with a new learning situation we not only create new memory traces but we constantly extract patterns from our stimulation. In speech, this latter mechanism is even more relevant since auditory stimulation unfolds in time and prediction of upcoming elements is critical for optimal processing. In this talk, I will present a series of studies dissecting the characteristics of this predictive mechanism and highlighting its importance in the extraction of rules in language. I will present evidence indicating that this predictive mechanism is endogenously driven but implicit. It is intimately related to goal-directed attention but can be dissociated functionally and neuroanatomically from it. This distinction between a more automatic statistical predictive computation working at a sensory level and a more controlled attention dependent mechanism allowing more abstract knowledge is essential in the case of language development since the ability to control attention and the brain networks sustaining this function are not available since birth.

Dutch Research Consortium 'Language in Interaction'
Vacancy number: 30.06.18
Application deadline: 16 September 2018


Responsibilities

We are looking for highly motivated candidates to enrich a unique consortium of researchers aiming to unravel the neurocognitive mechanisms of language at multiple levels. The goal is to understand both the universality and variability of the human language faculty from genes to behaviour.

Currently, our consortium advertises one postdoctoral position and two PhD positions. These positions provide the opportunity for conducting world-class research as a member of an interdisciplinary team. Each position has its own requirements and profile.

Click here for more information on the positions.

Work environment

The Netherlands has an outstanding track record in the language sciences. The Language in Interaction research consortium, sponsored by a large grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), brings together a large number of the excellent research groups in the Netherlands in one research programme on the foundations of language.
In addition to excellence in the domain of language and related relevant fields of cognition, our consortium provides state-of-the-art research facilities and a research team with ample experience in the complex research methods that will be invoked to address the scientific questions at the highest level of methodological sophistication, including methods from genetics, neuroimaging, computational modelling, and patient-related research. This consortium realises both quality and critical mass for studying human language at a scale not easily found anywhere else.

We have identified five Big Questions (BQ) that are central to our understanding of the human language faculty. These questions are interrelated at multiple levels. Teams of researchers will collaborate to collectively address these key questions in our field.

Our five Big Questions are:
BQ1: The nature of the mental lexicon: How to bridge neurobiology and psycholinguistic theory by computational modelling?
BQ2: What are the characteristics and consequences of internal brain organisation for language?
BQ3: Creating a shared cognitive space: How is language grounded in and shaped by communicative settings of interacting people?
BQ4: Variability in language processing and in language learning: Why does the ability to learn language change with age? How can we characterise and map individual language skills in relation to the population distribution?
BQ5: How are other cognitive systems shaped by the presence of a language system in humans?

More information on our Big Questions:
www.languageininteraction.nl/Bigquestions.html

Successful candidates will be appointed at one of the consortium’s home institutions, depending on the position applied for. All successful candidates will become members of our Big Question teams. The research is being conducted at the participating institutions in an international setting. English is the lingua franca.

Short-term fellowships for PhD students in 2019, University of Potsdam, Germany, deadline: September 30, 2018

The Collaborative Research Centre SFB 1287 “Limits of Variability in Language: Cognitive, Grammatical, and Social Aspects” in Potsdam, Germany,invites applications for short-term fellowships available in 2019, 2020.

Language users exhibit a high degree of variability at all levels of the linguistic system, language use, and language development and change. This variability in language can be characterised as the range of different possible linguistic behaviours that are available to a language user, a language community, or in specific languages at any linguistic level. By exploring the systematicity and the limits of variability in linguistic behaviours, the main focus of the Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) is on identifying the constraints of the underlying linguistic system. Several projects jointly evaluate the limits, relations, dependencies, and commonalities of different types of variability across a range of linguistic phenomena from the perspectives of (A) language interaction and change, of (B) language processing, and of (C) grammatical systems. The CRC provides a fantastic research infrastructure including a large interdisciplinary network of researchers, its own graduate school, and funding opportunities for conference visits, summer schools, hosting international experts etc.

We are offering several three- to twelve-month fellowships to external PhD candidates who would like to do their research within one dedicated project of the CRC. Please see the available projects here: https://www.uni-potsdam.de/en/sfb1287/subprojects....

The monthly fellowship is tax exempt and covers a basic amount (1365 EUR) plus direct costs (103 EUR) plus 400 EUR per child, if applicable. Holders of the grant need to cover health insurance on their own.

The University of Potsdam hosts leading groups in the field of linguistics and cognitive sciences (http://www.uni-potsdam.de/en/cognitive-sciences/index.html). Potsdam is an attractive historical city and its palaces are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Potsdam is close to Berlin, a culturally vibrant city and home to a lively start-up scene. Both cities have a high quality of life at modest living costs.

The University of Potsdam strives to maintain gender balance among its staff. Severely disabled applicants shall receive preference in case of equal qualifications. We invite applications from people with migration backgrounds.

The fellowships require completed academic studies at an institute of higher learning (Master’s degree or equivalent). Please send your application as a single PDF file including: (1) a statement of research interests and motivation, (2) a full CV, (3) a short research proposal for the duration of the fellowship, (4) the names and e-mail addresses of at least two referees, (5) academic transcripts, (6) list of publications/talks/presentations, and (7) a web-link to a copy of the Master's thesis to Dr. Anastasiya Dockhorn-Romanova dockhornromanova@uni-potsdam.de. The research proposal should state which project within the CRC the short-term researcher wants to be affiliated with (e.g., “A01”). Applicants are advised to contact the CRC investigators with whom they would like to work and discuss the possibility of collaboration.

Deadline for the application for a fellowship in 2019 is September, 30, 2018. Late applications may be considered if positions are unfilled.

​Vacancy: PhD position in Cognition, Language and Communication, ACLC, University of Amsterdam, deadline: October 7, 2018

The University of Amsterdam has a vacancy for a PhD candidate in an
interdisciplinary research project "The Sound of Political Irony".

Project description

Political irony in public discourse (e.g., in political satire) is often
misunderstood, and appreciated only by recipients in agreement with the
speaker. Irony may be marked in various ways, for instance through
prosody and hyperbole, but the role and form of such markers is unclear. Our project comprises three stages, in which we study:

1) the use of irony markers through computational analysis;
2) their functions through cognitive modeling, and
3) their communicative effects through experiments.

Together, these findings enrich theories on language, communication and cognition, and help in assessing the ways in which irony leads to
misinformation and polarization. The project is highly
interdisciplinary, combining elements from the linguistics literature on
irony and prosody with communication-scientific insights into political
satire and cognitive-scientific insights into processing.

Your tasks will include:

- conducting several studies using (1) quantitative,
computer-automated text analysis, (2) cognitive modeling, and (3)
experimental methods;
- completion and defense of a PhD thesis within four years;
- working in an interdisciplinary research team;
regular presenting intermediate research results at workshops and
conferences;
- publication of peer-reviewed articles;
- participation in the training program of the research school;
- performing junior teaching duties in the bachelor program on
Cognition, Language and Communication (CLC).

Requirements

- MSc/MA (or equivalent) in a relevant field, e.g. linguistics,
communication science, psychology, or cognitive science, with excellent
grades. A research master is preferred. Substantial knowledge of at
least one of the fields that compose our project, as well as the ability
to understand approaches/literature from other disciplines, is required;
- excellent (interdisciplinary) research skills;
- programming skills in R or Python;
- excellent academic writing and presentation skills;
- excellent communication, social and organizational skills;
- open to working in an interdisciplinary team;

Semantics and Philosophy in Europe 10 (SPE10)
Barcelona, 17-19 December

CALL FOR PAPERS

The purpose of the Semantics and Philosophy in Europe (SPE) colloquia is to provide a forum for presenting research in the interface between linguistic semantics and various areas of philosophy (philosophy of language, philosophy of mind/cognition, metaphysics etc.). Previous colloquia have taken place in Paris (SPE1, 2008 and SPE3, 2010), London (SPE2, 2009), Bochum (SPE4, 2011), Turin (SPE5, 2012), St.Peterburg (SPE6 2013) Berlin (SPE7, 2014), Cambridge (SPE8, 2016) and Padua (SPE9, 2017). This year’s Semantics and Philosophy in Europe Colloquium features a general session with four invited speakers as well as two special sessions:
1. The Syntax, Semantics and Philosophy of Speech Acts
2. Semantics in other minds
For the general session, we invite any contributions on topics at the interface of linguistics an philosophy, including but not limited to work on truth and meaning, the architecture of language, reference, attitude reports, the formal ontology of language, the relation between syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, semantics and the brain, and semantics of other symbolic systems.

SPECIAL SESSION 1: The Syntax, Semantics and Philosophy of Speech Acts

Convener: Friederike Moltmann

In recent years there has been an increased awareness of the conceptual and empirical limitations of the standard, abstract proposition-based view of meaning (Montague Grammar). This has given way to an increased interest in linguistic expressions and constructions that relate to speech acts, resulting in new work in formal syntax and semantics (and pragmatics), and philosophy of language, such as the theory of commitment spaces (Krifka), act-based conceptions of propositional content (Hanks, Soames), the theory of attitudinal objects (Moltmann), and the syntax of perlocutionary aspects of speech acts integrating the role of the addressee (Marcu, Wiltschko). Contributions to this special session may relate to the following topics:
- speech act indicators and their formal semantics
- the semantics of speech act verbs, verbs of saying, and propositional attitude verbs
- act-based and cognitive conceptions of propositional content
- the action-product distinction of Twardowski
- the formal syntax of speech acts (locutionary, illocutionary, and perlocutionary acts)
- the semantics of questions and imperatives
- the semantics of mood

SPECIAL SESSION 2: Semantics in other minds

Convener: Wolfram Hinzen

Language is not uniform among humans: there is systematic genetic variation in our species giving rise to different cognitive and linguistic phenotypes, across which the structure of meaning need not remain the same. While abnormal forms of cognition have long informed discussions in phenomenology and the philosophy of mind and cognition, a linguistic perspective can inform such debates as well, as it already has done in psychiatry and developmental disorders. This special session wants to give a first forum for work on language patterns and their semantics in a range of different disorders, from developmental ones (Williams syndrome, autism spectrum conditions) to psychiatric (schizophrenia) and neurodegenerative ones. The overall research question is in what way the disintegrating or simply different mind is always linguistically different as well, and how this shows in semantics specifically.

Call for papers: The American Comparative Literature Association's 2019 Annual Meeting

The Story of Remembrance: The Future of Memory and Memories of the Future

Location: Georgetown University, Washington, DC.
Time: March 7-10, 2019
Abstract Submission Deadline: September 20, 2018
Organizer: Dr. Mavis Tseng Assistant Professor Taipei Medical University mavistseng@tmu.edu.tw

Following the success of its previous ACLA seminar “The Story of Memory: Remembering, Forgetting, and Unreliable Narrators” held in March 2018, this seminar invites paper proposals to discuss how memory is represented and imagined diversely in the works of literature, art, and film from different cultural contexts.


Living in an age saturated with memory and forgetting, we see the protagonists unsettled by their lost memory in films and novels: Memento (2000), The Bourne Identity (2002), Remainder (2005), The Amnesiac (2007), Amnesia (2014), The Girl On the Train (2015), The Buried Giant (2015), etc.. These amnesic protagonists, haunted by déjà vu they can never make sense of, often experience trauma and violence. Their attempts to repeat or re-enact the past complicate one’s understanding of temporalities as well as their identity.

On the other hand, the futurist Raymond Kurzweilb (2010) made a bold prediction that with nanobot technology, humans will be able to back up their memories within two decades. This scenario has been fictionalized in two episodes in the dystopian sci-fi TV series Black Mirror (2011) and the film Marjorie Prime (2017): humans can record, edit, delete, or even “relive” every single memory and experience they have, either with a small device implanted in their brains or with an A.I. built from memories. These futuristic meditations on memory raise questions on the authenticity of lived experience and the limits of memory storage or modifying technologies.

The convoluted relationship between memory and time is also a significant theme in stories like Minority Report (2002). The film introduces a whole new relation between the past, present, and future, by showing that one “PreCrime” police must prove he “will not have murdered” a stranger as he is convicted by the Precogs’ “the memory of future.” Mark Currie (2013)’s discussion on “futur anterierur” (future perfect) emphasizes the forwardlookingness of memory as a unique sensory experience in the 21st century. While experiencing a new temporality, we tend to confer the “full substantiality of a past event” to the future.

This seminar aims to explore the following questions: what is the future of memory? How do social media, A. I., and other digital technologies influence the way of remembering/forgetting? How are the past, the present, and the future intertwined in a diverse manner in these fictions? What does it mean to have “memories of the future”?

Topics may include, but are not limited to:
memory and forgetting
memory illusion
nostalgia and anachronism
postmemory, rememory
trauma, melancholy, and other backward affects
collective memory/amnesia
remembrance in the digital age
sci-fi, A.I. and memory
posthuman subjectivity and memory
gendered memories
reenactment/repetition in memory
violence and memory
futur antérieur (future perfect)
time, space, and memory

Please send a 300 word abstract and a short bio through the ACLA portal (http://www.acla.org/node/add/paper) by September 20, 2018. Please select “The Story of Remembrance: The Future of Memory and Memories of the Future” in the Seminar drop box.

* Submission deadline: March 1, 2019 *
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Call for Papers
---------------
Semantic representations at different levels – word, sentence, paragraph – are central to many solutions to Natural Language Processing (NLP) tasks. Text annotation, information retrieval, sentiment analysis, text summarisation, question answering, and machine translation solutions have achieved significant improvements using semantic representations of words. The number of tasks has also grown with the popularisation of unsupervised word embeddings, a fast and efficient way of estimating continuous representations of words. Now, representations derived from deep learning methods are giving a new boost to the field.

But in an increasingly globalised world, multilingual and cross-language applications are needed. Extensions to monolingual representations of words such as multilingual Brown clusters, multilingual or interlingual word embeddings, multilingual topic models, and cross-lingual semantic parsers have been successfully applied, though performance lags behind their monolingual counterparts. On the other hand, multilinguality should be able to overcome one of the main limitations of standard representations: multiple senses of a word are conflated into a single vector. In addition, representations of sentences and paragraphs are arising through the encoder-decoder approach (in the fields of natural language inference, machine translation, and text summarization, among others) and the extension to multilingual inputs is equally or even more interesting for NLP applications.

Abstract semantic representations attract interest both in academia and industry, as shown by the wide and varied publications from universities and companies on this topic. Achieving improvements in this direction will change the conception of translation (from pairwise to interlingua), enable greater sharing among different NLP applications, and overcome low-resource limitations through zero-shot learning, among other advantages. This research direction will not only increase the performance of current architectures in cross-language settings, but will also lead to novel language-independent architectures and tasks for NLP.

Topics
------
This call aims to motivate research on multilingual and interlingual representations that, in the context of any NLP task, go beyond projections from one language into another one and that target crosslinguality. The special topic proposed aims to put together a compact and openly accessible volume, which presents high quality research works that cover an overview of this multidisciplinary field as well as most recent advances.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

• Multilingual and crosslingual embeddings for words, sentences, paragraphs, or documents
• Interlingual representations for disambiguation (e.g., embeddings of interlingual word senses, concepts, etc.)
• Disambiguated representations through multilinguality
• Intrinsic evaluation of multilingual or crosslingual representations
• Extrinsic evaluation on NLP tasks

We strongly encourage submissions that include experimental findings on languages and dialects less commonly studied in natural language processing at present.

Submission Date
---------------
Submission of full articles: March 1st 2019

Submission Instructions
-----------------------
Papers should be submitted according to the Computational Linguistics style: http://cljournal.org/
As in regular submissions to the journal, paper submissions should be made through the CL electronic submission system: http://cljournal.org/submissions.html. In Step 1 of the submission process, please select 'Special Issue: Multilingual and Interlingual Semantic Representations' under the 'Journal Section' heading.

HAHA - Humor Analysis based on Human Annotation at IberEval 2018

https://www.fing.edu.uy/inco/grupos/pln/haha/

While humor has been historically studied from a psychological, cognitive and linguistic standpoint, its study from a computational perspective is an area yet to be explored in Machine Learning and Computational Linguistics. The aim of this track is to gain better insight into what is humorous and what causes laughter. The HAHA evaluation campaign proposes three different subtasks related to automatic humor detection in Spanish.

We will provide a corpus of 20,000 crowd-annotated tweets in Spanish divided in 16,000 tweets for training and 4,000 tweets for testing. The annotation follows a voting scheme, in which users could select one of six options: the tweet does not contain humor, or the tweet contains humor and a number of stars from one to five. All tweets have at least five votes.

Three subtasks are proposed:

* Humor Detection: telling if a tweet is a joke or not (intended humor by the author or not).

* Funniness Score Prediction: predicting a Funniness Score value for a tweet in a 5-star ranking, supposing it is a joke, based on a crowd-annotated corpus.

* Funniness Distribution Prediction (experimental): the final task goes beyond the previous one by asking a prediction of the distribution of votes for a tweet (i.e., what percentage of votes for each one of the 5 stars).


How to participate:

If you want to participate in this task, please join the Google Group hahaibereval2018. We will be sharing news and important information about the task in that group.

Important Dates:

* March 26th, 2018: 16,000 tweets for training.

* April 23rd, 2018: 4,000 tweets for testing.

* April 30th, 2018: results submission page.

* May 7th, 2018: publication of results.

* May 21st, 2018: working notes paper submission.

* June 18th, 2018: notification of acceptance.

* June 27th, 2018: camera ready paper submission.

* September 18th, 2018: IberEval Workshop at SEPLN 2018.
