8th Web as Corpus Workshop (WAC-8) @ Corpus Linguistics 2013
Monday, 22 July 2013 (Lancaster, UK)
Endorsed by ACL SIGWAC
Web corpora and other Web-derived data have become a gold mine for corpus linguistics and natural language processing. The Web is an easy source of unprecedented amounts of linguistic data from a broad range of registers and text types. However, a collection of Web pages is not immediately suitable for exploration in the same way a traditional corpus is.
Since the first Web as Corpus Workshop organised at the Corpus Linguistics 2005 Conference, a highly successful series of yearly Web as Corpus workshops provides a venue for interested researchers to meet, share ideas and discuss the problems and possibilities of compiling and using Web corpora. After a stronger focus on application-oriented natural language processing and Web technology in recent years - with workshops taking place at NAACL-HLT 2010, 2011 and WWW 2012 - the 8th Web as Corpus Workshop returns to its roots in the corpus linguistics community.
The yearly workshop of the ACL Special Interest Group on the Web as Corpus (SIGWAC) brings together researchers from corpus linguistics, natural language processing and other fields who are interested in building, annotating, studying and using Web corpora.
