Message 2: Corpus Linguistics 2003, Lancaster UK

Date: Fri, 1 Nov 2002 15:57:18 -0000
From: Rayson, Paul <raysonexchange.lancs.ac.uk>
Subject: Corpus Linguistics 2003, Lancaster UK

CORPUS LINGUISTICS 2003

Lancaster University (UK), 28 March - 1 April 2003

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS AND WORKSHOPS

Corpus Linguistics 2003 will be a forum for all concerned with the
computer-assisted empirical analysis of natural language. Our
definition of 'corpus' is broad, and we therefore welcome those
working on substantial literary texts or other kinds of text
collection as well as more 'traditional' corpus linguists. Similarly,
we wish to encourage further cross-fertilization between work
occurring in language engineering (e.g. information extraction,
parsing) and linguistics. We believe that corpus linguists should be
aware of the latest developments in language processing. We also
believe that language engineers should be aware of the findings and
needs of corpus linguists.

The conference will include invited talks from:
Nicoletta Calzolari - Corpora and the lexicon
Michael Hoey - topic TBA
Susan Hunston - topic TBA
Nancy Ide - Everything you wanted to know about the American National Corpus
... but were afraid to ask 

The aims of Corpus Linguistics 2003 are: 

1. to encourage dialogue between those working on similar issues in
different languages and between areas with a (perhaps as yet untapped)
potential to interact.

2. to encourage dialogue between researchers using corpora in
linguistics and those using corpora in language engineering. For the
main conference, papers of ca. 20 minutes are invited on topics such
as:

corpus-based studies of any language level in any language 
contrastive corpus linguistics 
computer-aided studies of style 
corpus- or text-based lexicography 
corpus/text building, encoding and annotation 
development of corpus-based language engineering tools 
applications of computer-aided text analysis in non-linguistic fields (market
research, advertising, media studies, sociology, psychology, etc.) 

Proposals for workshops (half day or full day) are also
invited. Topics broadly in line with the theme of the conference will
be considered. Workshops will be held on the 27th March. The
conference language will be English.

REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBMISSION 

Papers: 

Abstracts of up to one page should be submitted to the Programme
Committee by 2nd Dec 2002. As well as an outline of the paper, the
abstract should include the authors' names, affiliations, and contact
addresses (including e-mail and fax numbers). Electronic submissions
are welcome.

Workshops: 

Abstracts of two pages should be submitted to the Programme Committee
by 2nd Dec 2002. The abstract should include the names of the
organizers, their contact details, and the projected number of papers
to be presented at the workshop. Workshop organizers should also
indicate whether they wish to generate a set of proceedings for their
workshop.

Those proposing a software demonstration should additionally indicate
in detail what (if any) hardware and software requirements they have.

Proceedings 

Proceedings will be produced from the conference. The proceedings will
be available to participants during the conference, and will be
available following the conference as a UCREL technical
paper. Selected papers will appear in an edited collection to be
published.

DEADLINES AND IMPORTANT DATES 

Deadline for abstracts: 2 December 2002
