Meeting Description:

The European Society of Phraseology (EUROPHRAS) is organising its 2015 conference in Malaga, Spain, from 29 June to 1 July 2015. The city of Malaga, with its rich history spanning more than two thousand years since its foundation by the Phoenicians, boasts an important cultural infrastructure and rich artistic heritage. It has always been a multicultural and cosmopolitan city with one of the biggest Mediterranean seaports and a busy international airport. Combining its rich traditions, the comforts of a modern city, and its warm and sunny climate, Malaga makes an ideal location for the 2015 EUROPHRAS conference.

In keeping with this year’s title, “Computerised and Corpus-based Approaches to Phraseology: Monolingual and Multilingual Perspectives”, it will be focused on various technology-related topics within phraseology. More specifically, the conference intends to create a platform for the presentation and discussion of the most recent and advanced computational and corpus-based methods applied in phraseology, and consequently to promote further development and innovations in the field, including not only monolingual, but also multilingual phraseology and translation.

In conjunction with EUROPHRAS 2015, the second Workshop on ''Multi-word Units in Machine Translation and Translation Technology'' (WSMUTTT) will take place as an associated event. The first edition of the workshop was successfully held at the Machine Translation Summit 2013.

EUROPHRAS2015 Chair:

Gloria Corpas Pastor

EUROPHRAS2015 Keynote Speakers:

- Jean-Pierre Colson (Institut Libre Marie Haps, Brussels/Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium)
- Patrick Hanks (University of Wolverhampton/University of the West of England, United Kingdom)

In line with the overarching theme ''Computerised and Corpus-based Approaches to Phraseology: Monolingual and Multilingual Perspectives'', the event will focus on various technology-related topics related to phraseology. More specifically, the conference will be a forum where most recent and advanced computational and corpus-based methods applied in phraseology will be discussed. As such, it will promote further development and innovations in the field, including not only monolingual, but also multilingual approaches to phraseology and translation.

Topics:

The conference will invite papers addressing corpus-based phraseology and the computational processing of phraseological units, such as their identification, classification, extraction, analysis, translation and representation. Papers will be accepted in English, Spanish, French and German covering topics including (but not limited to):

- Corpus based phraseology
- Computational approaches to monolingual and contrastive phraseology
- NLP-driven and corpus based approaches to the teaching of phraseological units
