Topics/Call fo Papers

Language, corpora and applications: diversity and change

22-24 March 2012

Department of English Philology

The Spanish Association of Corpus Linguistics (AELINCO) and the local Organizing Committee are pleased to announce that the 4th International Conference on Corpus Linguistics (CILC2012) will be hosted by the University of Jaén from 22 to 24 March 2012. We invite members of AELINCO and the academic community at large to submit paper and poster proposals (abstracts) dealing with the conference main topic within any of the nine panels established by the Society (see "Submissions").

Since the eighties, the leading role of new technologies and the growing awareness of the importance of the interdisciplinary nature of scientific research have led to a profound transformation and diversification of work on corpus linguistics, corpora and their applications. Thirty years on, it seems necessary to look both into the present diversity of corpora and their applications and into the range of linguistic studies stemming from such an evolution. Consequently, under the theme Language, corpora and applications: diversity and change, the fourth edition of this conference welcomes proposals for presentations, posters and panel discussions on such issues as corpus-based linguistic evolution, corpus-based genre and register linguistic variation, recently-compiled corpora, minority language corpora, corpora and applied fields (translation, terminology, lexicography, second language teaching and acquisition, etc.), computational advances in corpus-based linguistic research, etc.

CILC2012 will be pleased to welcome the following plenary speakers, all of whom have already confirmed their participation:
Prof. Dr. Bas Aarts. University College London, United Kingdom.
Prof. Dr. Teresa Fanego. Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
Prof. Dr. Geoffrey N. Leech. University of Lancaster, United Kingdom.
Prof. Dr. W. Detmar Meurers. Eberhard-Karls-Universität, Tübingen, Germany.
Prof. Dr. Matti Rissanen. Helsingin yliopisto (University of Helsinki), Finland.
Dr. Paul Thompson. University of Birmingham, United Kingdom.

As in previous editions, two pre-conference workshops will be held on Wednesday 21 March. The first one will deal with Spoken Corpora and the second one with English historical corpora compiled in Spain. More detailed information will be provided in the second Call for papers.

CILC2012 is structured into nine thematic panels:
Corpus design, compilation and types, chaired by Dr. Francisco Alonso Almeida, Universidad de las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
Discourse, literary analysis and corpora, chaired by Dr. José Luis Oncins, Universidad de Cáceres.
