Graphemics in the 21st century—From graphemes to knowledge


/gʁafematik/ 2018 is the first conference bringing together disciplines concerned with writing systems and their representation in written communication. The conference aims to reflect on the current state of research in the area, and on the role that writing and writing systems play in neighboring disciplines like computer science and information technology, communication, typography, psychology, and pedagogy. In particular it aims to study the effect of the growing importance of Unicode with regard to the future of reading and writing in human societies. Reflecting the richness of perspectives on writing systems, /gʁafematik/ is actively interdisciplinary, and welcomes proposals from  researchers from the fields of computer science and information technology, linguistics, communication, pedagogy, psychology, history, and the social sciences. 
 
/gʁafematik/ aims to create a space for the discussion of the range of approaches to writing systems, and specifically to bridge approaches in linguistics, informatics, and other fields. It will provide a forum for explorations in terminology, methodology, and theoretical approaches relating to the delineation of an emerging interdisciplinary area of research that intersects with intense activity in practical implementations of writing systems.

The conference will be held at Pôle numérique Brest Iroise at Brest, France, on June 14-15, 2018.
