The objective of the Corpus Conference for Postgraduate Researchers, organized

research in a friendly environment. As with last year, we are combining the
conference with the Aston Corpus Symposium, which will take place on the
following day. Postgraduates will thus have the opportunity to hear experts talk
about their past and current projects.

Presentations can focus on any corpus-related topic.
