Hello everyone,

with best wishes

Keystroke Language (and Text) Production: perspectives from cognitive and 
functional linguistics
Supported by the Centre for Language and Communication Research and the 
LinC Research Network
Cardiff University, Cardiff, Wales

23-24 May 2011

The use of keystroke logging as a methodology in language research is not 
a new field of study since the first Computer Keystroke Logging conference 
was held at Umeå University in Sweden in 2002. However to date this area 
of research has primarily focussed on written composition and translation 
studies.  The KEY 2011 workshop and conference intends to broaden this 
perspective by extending the contributions keystroke logging can make to 
language production generally, including spontaneous language such as chat 
messaging. Its theme is to explore functional and cognitive perspectives 
on the use of keystroke logging in language research where the focus of 
interest is on the dynamic process of production rather than on the static 
product of language production.

Keynote Speakers

Professor Kristyan Spelman Miller (University of Winchester)

Dr Mick O’Donnell (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Wagsoft Software)

Call for papers
Papers are invited on the general theme of the conference, dealing with 
the use of keystroke logging in linguistic and language-related research. 
Presentations will be 20 minutes with 10 minutes discussion time.  Papers 
which present work in progress or that focus on software development and 
methodology are also welcome.

Although we will consider all contributions that relate to the main theme 
in general, we especially encourage papers that explore: 
Evidence of cognitive processing in electronic language production
Corpora and the study of electronically produced language
Language or text as dynamic process (rather than static product)
Human-Computer Interaction as related to language and keyboard competence
Linguistic competence (including translation competence)
Descriptive work that enhances our understanding of electronically 
produced language
Functional accounts of language production (including manual and cognitive 
Methodological and/or ethical issues in the use of keystroke logging 

An abstract of approximately 400 words should be submitted electronically 
at the following webpage: http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/KEY2011. This 
is a free service offered by the Linguist List.

In the abstract, please state, where appropriate, research questions, 
approach, method, data and (expected) results.  Abstracts will be refereed 
anonymously by members of the programme committee.

The deadline for submissions is 16 March 2011.

Notification will be sent to authors by 4 April 2011.

Further information about this event including programme details and 
registration will follow as soon as possible.
