CORPUS LINGUISTICS 2013: First Announcement and Call for Workshops

The seventh international CORPUS LINGUISTICS conference (CL2013) will
be held at Lancaster University from Tuesday 23rd July 2013 to Friday
26th July 2013. The main conference will be preceded by a workshop day
on Monday 22nd July.

The goals of the conference are as follows.

*  To gather together current and developing research in the study and
   application of corpus linguistics;
*  To push the field forwards by promoting dialogue among the many
   different users of corpora across interconnected sub-disciplines of
   linguistics - be they descriptive, theoretical, applied or
*  To explore new challenges both within corpus linguistics, and in the
   extension of corpus approaches to new fields of study.

With these goals in mind, we invite contributions on as broad and
inclusive a basis as possible. The areas in which we particularly
welcome submissions include but are not limited to:

*  Critical explorations of existing measures and methods in corpus
*  New methods and techniques in corpus development, annotation and
*  Corpus approaches to the study of new media;
*  New tools and techniques developed in corpus-based computational
*  The application of corpus approaches in the social sciences and
*  The extension of corpus linguistics to an ever-wider range of
   (non-English) languages;
*  The interface between corpus and theory;
*  The use of corpora in discourse analysis;
*  The use of corpora in second language acquisition studies and
   language pedagogy.

The following speakers have accepted our invitation to give plenary
lectures at CL2013:

*  Karin Aijmer
*  Guy Cook
*  Michael Hoey
*  Ute Römer

With this announcement, we issue our main Call for Workshops, and
provide advance notice of our Call for Papers.


As noted above, CL2013 will include a workshop day on Monday 22nd July
2013. We hereby issue a call for workshop proposals on any theme
relevant to the conference.

"Workshops" may take two main forms.

The first type is the **colloquium-style workshop**, which operates as
a mini-conference with its own programme committee and call for papers
to be presented: proposals for this type of workshop should specify
the scope of the workshop, who its organisers will be, and whether the
creation of workshop proceedings is envisaged. Proposals should also
provide an initial version of the text of the call for papers.

The other main type of workshop is a **practical or applied workshop**
providing a demonstration of or training in some particular corpus
#linguistic technique or piece of software. In this case the proposal
must explain the content of the workshop, provide an initial version
of the text of a call for participation, and give an indication of
the workshop's IT requirements, if any.

We are also happy to consider innovative forms of workshop
intermediate between colloquium-style workshop and practical workshop.

All proposals must in addition specify the proposed length. Our
timetable allows for the following lengths of workshop:

*  Full-day workshop - up to 7 hours (plus lunch/breaks)
*  Half-day workshop - up to 3.5 hours (plus break)
*  Short workshop    - up to 2 hours (single session)

There is no fixed format for workshop proposals, as long as they
include all the details specified above. Proposals should be sent by
email to Andrew Hardie <a.hardie@lancaster.ac.uk> by the end of
October. We are happy to respond to informal expressions of interest
in advance of formal submission of a proposal.


We invite submission of abstracts for papers, posters and panels on
any topic relevant to the conference theme.

For this conference, we are requesting **extended abstracts**
(750-1500 words), as we do not plan to produce a volume of conference
proceedings. All abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the conference
programme committee.

PAPER PRESENTATIONS will consist of a 20 minute talk followed by 10
minutes for questions and discussion. Please note: paper submissions
should present either complete research, or research in progress where
at least some substantial results have been achieved. Work in progress
which has yet to produce results can be submitted as a poster abstract
- see below.

Submissions for PANEL DISCUSSIONS should take the form of a single
1500 word abstract on behalf of all speakers to be on the panel. The
abstract should include a note to specify whether the panel is
intended to be 1 hour or 1.5 hours in length.

Submissions for POSTER PRESENTATIONS should be shorter (400-750
words). We especially welcome poster abstracts that (a) report on
innovative research that is in its very earliest phases (b) report on
new software or corpus data resources.

We especially encourage abstract submissions from early-career
researchers, including postgraduate research students and postdoctoral

All abstracts must be submitted via the conference website; the
submission system will be live from 31st October 2012.

A further call for papers, with full submission details, will be
released in early November.


*  31st October 2012 - abstract submission opens via conference website
*  31st October 2012 - deadline for proposals for workshops
*  8th January 2013 - deadline for abstract submission
