This year's Colloquium will feature a special session on "Advances in computational methods: Innovations in theory and analysis". We are soliciting papers describing computional methodologies in furtherance of more general linguistic understanding. This includes, but is not limited to, papers on formal language theory and computational models of natural data. We are interested in papers from across the spectrum of theoretical and applied linguistics and related fields.
