The Warsaw conference is the fifth meeting in the series of events bringing together linguists conducting research with the help of corpora databases. The previous meetings took place in Prague (2005, 2012), Liblice (2007), and Mannheim (2009).

Call for Papers:

We address our invitation to academia members and teachers working in the field of theory and practice of employing corpora in research and academic work. This year’s conference is conceived as a meeting space enabling cooperation between experienced researchers and those entering the sphere of corpus-linguistic research.

We have chosen to address the following topics covering a vast array of possible research areas:

1. Research in linguistics involving corpora

Due to the conference’s thematic scope, speeches/papers will be preferred which concern the use of corpora in research of grammar.
