This conference has a strong focus on both texts and processes and explores the possibilities for studying both aspects in combination. We particularly welcome presentations addressing issues like

  • possibilities and limits of inferring processes from texts
  • possibilities and limits in using process data to explain and predict textual characteristics
  • triangulation of different methods, for studying both text and process.
