Meeting Description:

In October 2008 the Swiss Text Corpus project will be completed and be made
available online (www.schweizer-textkorpus.ch) as part of a corpus of the German
language. It contains German texts from a wide range of different text types of
20th century Switzerland. The German seminar of the University of Basel takes
stock at the end of this project and is pleased to announce a conference with
the title 'Diversity in Language Corpora'. The aim of the conference is to
investigate the different dynamic fields of work that deal with language corpora.

The word 'diversity' in the title of the conference refers not only to the
diversity of the corpus from a historical or contextual point of view or the
diversity of the various kinds of texts and the conditions of their production
and reception, but it also refers to the theoretical, technical and practical
insights which were gained in the course of the project. 'Diversity' also
addresses the various academic disciplines with which the language corpus came
into contact as well as the various possibilities of use that the corpus offers.

On the one hand, the conference aims to present to the public the Swiss Text
Corpus and its partner projects in Germany (Berlin), Austria (Vienna) and Italy
(Bolzano). On the other hand it aims to locate the completed corpus within a
bigger framework and wants to provide a forum for a dialogue with current
debates in related disciplines such as corpus linguistics, computational
linguistics, lexicography, digitization and computer science.

The conference will be held at the 'Bildungszentrum der mission 21'
(Missionsstrasse 21, CH-4055 Basel), from 22 to 24 April.
