2019-08-12 After addressing the minor revisions requested, we resubmitted our manuscript to the special issue of International Journal of Geo-Information, Historical GIS and Digital Humanities. There is a preprint available, titled ‘Japanese Lexical Variation Explained by Spatial Contact Patterns’.
 The 1st International Workshop on Computational Approaches to Historical Language Change 2019, held at the ACL 2019 conference, has taken place in Florence, featuring our POSTER, presenting the findings of our paper: Spatio-Temporal Prediction of Dialectal Variant Usage.
2019-08-01 The final (i.e. revised, definitive, printed, shiny, physical version) of my thesis has been submitted to the Central Library in Zurich, which was the last step to complete before actually applying for the doctoral title. ^^

2019-07-19 Presented our findings about Japanese dialects and their spatial relations at the International Cartographic Conference in Tokyo (2019.07.15-20). This is our short paper.
2019-06-12 Presented at the Seminar of the Art Research Center of the Ritsumeikan University about the more broad topic of linguistic geography, backed by my topics, namely the causes of dialectal diversity in Swiss German and Japanese, titled ‘Language Variation and Change: Geographic and Sociodemographic Causes’.
2019-06-03 Camera ready paper sent to the 1st International Workshop on Computational Approaches to Historical Language Change 2019, held at the ACL 2019 conference, the Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics, 2019 July 28th – Aug 2nd, Florence. Catch me there and download the paper: Spatio-Temporal Prediction of Dialectal Variant Usage
2019-04-17 Revised short paper submitted to be involved in one of the proceedings issue of the International Cartographic Conference. This short paper basically contains the preliminary results of my postdoc study on Japanese lexical variation, to be submitted soon as a full journal paper.
2019-04-16 A journal article from my PhD finally got published. This time we model interdialectal transitions in space from a gradient point of view. Full paper in the Journal of Linguistic Geography below – if you don’t have access, feel free to contact me for a copy or check this read-only version.
