I Wayan Arka is Professor in Linguistics at The Australian National University and Universitas Udayana. His research interests include descriptive, theoretical, and typological linguistics, with areal focus on the Austronesian and Papuan languages of Indonesia. His research examines the interfaces of morphology, syntax, and semantics/pragmatics framed in a larger socio-cultural context. His current projects include the Enggano Project and the ethnobiological-linguistic documentation of Marori. He has carried out extensive linguistic fieldwork and organized capacity building/advocacy programs for minority language communities in Indonesia.
Ash Asudeh is a Professor in the Department of Linguistics and the Director of the Center for Language Sciences at the University of Rochester. He has previously held positions at the University of Oxford and Carleton University, with which he remains affiliated. His research interests include syntax, semantics, pragmatics, language and logic/computation, and cognitive science. His publications include The Logic of Pronominal Resumption (OUP, 2012), Lexical-Functional Syntax (with Joan Bresnan, Ida Toivonen, and Stephen Wechsler; Wiley-Blackwell, 2016), and Enriched Meanings (with Gianluca Giorgolo; OUP, 2020).
Tracy Holloway King is a principal scientist at Adobe, focusing on search and natural language processing. She has a PhD in Linguistics from Stanford University, where her dissertation was on how word order encodes discourse functions in Russian. She began her career in Xerox PARC's Natural Language Theory and Technology group, focusing on the implementation of broad coverage grammars in Lexical Functional Grammar. She then shifted her focus to search relevance and short text processing working at Microsoft Bing, eBay's Search Science team, Amazon's product search team, and now Adobe.
