Call for Papers: Conference on corpus linguistics

14-16 March 2013
The Spanish Association of Corpus Linguistics (AELINCO) and the local
Organizing Committee are pleased to announce that the 5th International
Conference on
Corpus Linguistics (CILC2013) will be hosted by the University Institute
of Modern Applied Languages at the University of Alicante on 14 to 16 March

Since corpus work has taken on a more relevant role in descriptive and
applied studies on the various facets of language, availability and variety
of telectronic corpus and tools for their exploitation and analysis
have proliferated and many more are on the horizon. The availabity of such
diverse resources offers many opportunities for researchers, language
professionals, and language services providers. However, learning to use
and apply these resources still poses serious challenges. The theme for
this conference edition is ‘Corpus Resources for Descriptive and Applied
Studies: Current Challenges and Future Directions.’ and its aim is to
promote the submission of proposals for oral presentations and posters on
issues related to:

– New theoretical issues arising from the work with corpus in
the current scenario
– Applications of corpora for terminology, translation,
lexicography, teaching and language acquisition, etc.
– The creation of corpus and its exploitation in descriptive and
applied research
– The use of technologies for the analysis of texts for
different purposes
– Advances in computer technology for the compilation, use and
analysis of corpus.
– Corpus and ICT
