About the Forum

The Forum is a flexible mechanism for exploring shared research agendas and scoping opportunities for interdisciplinary research.

The IRC will facilitate round-table meetings, limited to around 20 participants. Any research group leader with a profile in the language sciences Research Directory may propose a topic for the Forum by contacting either of the IRC Directors, Prof. Ann Copestake and Prof. Ianthi Tsimpli

Reports of all meetings will be made available here for members of the research network (Raven authentication required).

The Research Incubator Fund provides a potential source of funding for exploratory research as a follow-on from these meetings.

Next meeting

Computational Language Typology, with guest Prof. Emily Bender (26 March). If you are interested in attending please contact Jane Walsh with a short description of your interest in typology (jaw75@cam.ac.uk).

For more information about the Forum, or to propose a topic, please also contact Jane or the IRC Directors.
