Call for Papers:

The aim of the conference is to continue the success of the previous five IVACS conferences by exploring ways in which corpus linguistics have been used in different areas of linguistics. We invite papers that explore how this process has brought new methodological challenges and benefits, as well as papers that report on applied corpus research in any of the following areas:

1. Corpus Linguistics and Applied Linguistics (data-driven learning; learner corpora; testing; teacher education; non-native speakers of English/English as an International Language (EIL)/English as a Lingua Franca (ELF)
2. Corpus Linguistics and Historical Linguistics
3. Corpus Linguistics and Literature (including Corpus Stylistics; CL and Translation Studies)
4. Developments in Automated Corpus Analysis (data mining and text classification)
5. Corpus Linguistics and Analysing Discourse (using CL in conjunction with other methodologies, e.g. Discourse Analysis, Conversation Analysis, Critical Discourse Analysis); using CL to look at language in specific contexts, e.g. Media Discourse, Classroom Discourse, Workplace Discourse, Academic Discourse)
6. Corpus Linguistics and Forensic Linguistics
7. Corpus Linguistics and Pragmatics
8. Corpus Linguistics and Speech Technology
9. Corpus Linguistics and Sociolinguistics

Papers focusing on languages other than English, and non-native varieties of English are particularly welcome.
