Meeting Description:

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 focused 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 errors)
-Methodological and/or ethical issues in the use of keystroke logging software


An abstract of approximately 400 words should be submitted electronically at the following webpage: http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/KEY2011.
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.
