Final Call for Papers:

Since corpus work has taken on a more relevant role in descriptive and applied studies on the various facets of language, availability and variety of telectronic corpus and tools for their exploitation and analysis have proliferated and many more are on the horizon. The availability of such diverse resources offers many opportunities for researchers, language professionals, and language services providers. However, learning to use and apply these resources still poses serious challenges. The theme for this conference edition is ‘Corpus Resources for Descriptive and Applied Studies: Current Challenges and Future Directions.’ and its aim is to promote the submission of proposals for oral presentations and posters on issues related to:

- New theoretical issues arising from the work with corpus in the current scenario
- Applications of corpora for terminology, translation, lexicography, teaching and language acquisition, etc.
- The creation of corpus and its exploitation in descriptive and applied research
- The use of technologies for the analysis of texts for different purposes
- Advances in computer technology for the compilation, use and analysis of corpus
- Corpus and ICT
