The International Quantitative Morphology Association (IQMA) promotes research on quantitative approaches to the description and analysis of morphological phenomena in natural language. The term ‘morphology’ is construed broadly, covering all varieties of form variation. The class of quantitative approaches is equally broad, including (but not limited to):
- information-theoretic approaches, discriminative and Bayesian learning models, etc.
- simulation-based and connectionist models, vector-based semantic models, etc.
The IQMA aims to sponsor biennial conferences and tutorial courses devoted to quantitative topics.
- IQMM1, held at the University of Belgrade, from 11 – 15 July 2015, was co-organized by the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Novi Sad and the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Belgrade.
- IQMM2 is provisionally scheduled for the summer of 2017 at the University of Athens.
