Meeting Description:

The CoLTA 2015 conference aims to bring together academics from around the world to report on their various corpus linguistics related research work, especially new technologies employed in the investigation into corpora in linguistics, language learning and translation studies. As more and more new technological tools have been developed in recent years for corpus linguistics research, and many Hong Kong tertiary institutions, including the HKIEd, are actively engaged in this research area, we hope that through the CoLTA 2015 conference we can promote Hong Kong as a hub for academic exchanges and collaborations in the area of technology-driven corpus for linguistics scholars around the world.
