    • I am not sure exactly what you mean so I will answer what I think you are asking: unfortunately, we do *not* have funding to enable people to attend or give papers (other than the invited speakers), so there is no money available for travel expenses or lodging costs that participants might incur. The conference itself has very modest funding (for the invited speakers, for coffee breaks, and the like) from a small amount of money made available from our university.

  1. This workshop seems good and useful indeed! Personally I used Peter Culicover approach when analysed my Arabic data in my ph.d. thesis. So definitely I will attend this workshop.
