2nd NetWordS Workshop

December 3rd-4th 2012 - Toulouse

NETWORDS - The European Network on Word Structure

Perspectives on Synergy

Main Objectives and Agenda

NetWordS, the European Research Networking Programme on Word Structure, is promoting a large-scale integrated European effort, focusing on common medium-term objectives, with a view to fostering interdisciplinary cross-fertilization and synergy, and optimizing research investments in terms of convergent and complementary efforts. With this paramount goal in mind, over the first year of its life cycle, NetWordS has provided means and opportunities for young researchers and scholars to meet, exchange thoughts and expertise, pave to way towards more intergrated efforts and joint collaborative initiatives.

Although the European scenario is particularly conducive to these goals, due to the robustly empirical character of its up-front research, we believe that more should be done at this stage to:

- strengthen links to infrastructural initiatives
- explore direct ways to share data, documentation and software
- investigate opportunities for European project funding
- establish joint educational programmes and virtual laboratories
- foster large-scale research goals and take concrete steps towards their pursuit

The present workshop sets itself the goals of monitoring the current state of infrastructural initiatives and joint interdisciplinary research efforts in Europe, fostering a more effective flow of information and data/software exchanges through NetWordS, exploring possible ways forward in the context of current/future European research funding programmes.

With these objectives in mind, the workshop will gather PhD students and junior research fellows who carried out interdisciplinary research under the NetWordS granting scheme for 2011 and more senior scholars who are currently involved in European or national initiatives geared towards scientific goals of interest to the NetWordS programme.

Report publication and dissemination

Electronic records of the workshop will be made available through the NetWordS website (
www.networds-esf.eu). The SC will also consider submission of an edited collection of workshop presentations to a major European publisher
