This volume contains 13 papers presented at the 2008 HCSNet Workshop on
Designing the Australian National Corpus (AusNC), which was held at the
University of New South Wales as part of the annual HCSNet Summerfest from
4-5 December, 2009.
The papers include a selection of those presented at that workshop,
together with invited papers from selected participants. The first three
serve as "platform" papers in terms of the conception and design of the
AusNC. The next five papers focus on the diversity of language in
Australia, and the implications for the design of the AusNC. Another four
papers discuss the range of material, other than traditional texts and
transcripts, which should be collected and included in the AusNC. The
collection is rounded off by a paper on the advances in annotation
associated with the American National Corpus.
