Conference Call for Papers

TISLR14 will be held at the National Museum of Ethnology (Minpaku). TISLR will be held for the 14th time, but this is the first time it will be held in Asia. For this reason, we have also incorporated a project (panel discussion) that will serve as an opportunity to build a network for sign language linguistics research in Asia. This conference will be held online and onsite in parallel, with consideration given to preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus. We look forward to your active participation and submission of research presentations

Overview

Top Research Topics at Theoretical Issues Sign Language Research?

  • Sign language (46.27%)
  • Sign (mathematics) (23.88%)
  • Artificial intelligence (17.91%)

The objective of Theoretical Issues Sign Language Research is to combine knowledge in the areas of Sign language, Sign (mathematics), Artificial intelligence, British Sign Language and Communication. The event addresses concerns in Sign language which are intertwined with other disciplines, such as Sign (semiotics), Phonology and Iconicity. Theoretical Issues Sign Language Research explores topics in Artificial intelligence which can be helpful for research in disciplines like Negation and Natural language processing.

It explores themes in Natural language processing like Danish Sign Language and links them with other fields of study like Online processing, Basis (linear algebra) and Activation likelihood estimation. Topics in Danish Sign Language explored in Theoretical Issues Sign Language Research were investigated in conjunction with research in Machine-readable dictionary, Electronic dictionary, Lemmatisation and Lexicography. The work on British Sign Language tackled in Theoretical Issues Sign Language Research brings together disciplines like Language change, Animacy and Media studies.

The event facilitates discussions on Media studies that incorporate concepts from other fields like Handshape and Phonological theory. While work presented in the conference provided substantial information on Communication, it also covered topics in Social dynamics, Cognitive science, Gesture and Spoken language. Issues in Speech recognition were discussed, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Pragmatics and Translation (geometry).

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Grammar
  • Phonology

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The primary areas of discussion in Theoretical Issues Sign Language Research are Sign language, Sign (mathematics), Artificial intelligence, Natural language processing and Poetry. While Sign language is the focus of it, it also provided insights into the studies of Modality (semiotics), Lexical variation and Phonology. Attendees participated in lively discussions that mix various fields of study, including Sign (mathematics) and Speech recognition, Persistence (psychology) and Cognitive psychology.

Some problems in Speech recognition that were presented in the conference overlapped with concepts under Test (assessment) and Repetition (rhetorical device). The presented studies in Motion (physics) fall within the purview of Artificial intelligence but it also intertwines with topics in Visibility (geometry) and Event (relativity). Issues in Natural language processing were discussed, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Segmentation and Word (computer architecture).

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • Sign language dictionary as a digital tool in L2 teaching : Score evaluation of sentences for CEFR levels A1-B2 (0 citations)
  • A note on phonological acquisition of novice/L2 signers through a sign repetition task (0 citations)
  • Linear order: a minimal syntactic tool expressing the modifier and the modified (0 citations)

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2019 edition, 12.50% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 100.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 0.00% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 0.00% of all publications and 0.00% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
