The series of ConsILR conferences has begun in 2001, by the initiative of a group of researchers from Jassy, Bucharest and Kishinev, which have created, under the aegis of the Romanian Academy, the Commission for the Informatization of the Romanian Language, which subsequently formed, as an executive forum, the Consortium for the Informatization of the Romanian Language. The initiative has had as principal goal to foster the collaboration between the linguists and computer scientists interested in the study of Romanian language using formal and digital approaches. The proceedings including contributed papers were printed starting with the 2006 edition and since the 8th edition (the joined ConsILR events 2011-2012) the language of the volumes has been English.
This year’s event is dedicated to the celebration of the Centennial of the 1918 Great Union. On the one hand, the 1918 historical Union would not have been done if the linguistic unity of language was not already a fact a long time before and, on the other hand, the modern Romanian language was certainly influenced by this Union. We call for research that evidence the formation of the modern Romanian language, describing lexical, morphological, syntactic, discourse and/or pragmatic layers in both the analysis and the production of language, seen as speech and/or text. Contributions empirically evidencing Romanian language peculiarities in contrast with other languages or within its idioms, multi-word expressions, syntactic and semantic structures, so much culture-bound or nature-related, are especially welcome.
The fee will include: access to conference sessions, conference materials, a copy of the conference volume, coffee breaks, double room accommodation for 2 nights with breakfast included and lunch on 22 and 23 November and the festive dinner. If an author has more than one paper, they will pay a full fee for the first paper and 50% of the fee for each of the others. There is also possible to request additional accommodation for accompanying persons (costs to be announced).
The last day to pay the fee is 22nd of November 2018 (this is on-place registration, which does not guarantee accommodation; if paid earlier, please send the scanned payment receipt by email). Details – on the registration page.
