Meeting Description: The aim of the conference is to continue the success of the previous six IVACS conferences held at the Universities of Limerick (2002, 2008), Belfast, (2004), and Nottingham (2006), Edinburgh (2010) and Leeds (2012). The theme of the conference is intended to draw our attention to some of the challenges and opportunities which Corpus Linguistics has encountered, continues to encounter and may well encounter in the future. It is hoped that the conference will offer a snapshot of the various perspectives which corpus linguistics provides within and beyond the field of applied linguistics.
