Meeting Description:

Since the first meeting in 1994, the TaLC conferences have served as a forum for teachers, researchers and software developers to share their ideas on how corpus resources and tools for analysis can assist in language teaching. They aim to promote classroom applications of language corpora, data-driven learning, as well as the creation of corpus-informed teaching materials, and foster discussion between practitioners and theorists from all over the world.

The programme will consist of full papers, pre-conference workshops, poster sessions, software demonstrations and invited plenary talks. The programme starts with pre-conference workshops on Wednesday 20 July; the main conference will start on Thursday morning and finish on Saturday after lunch.

The following speakers have agreed to give plenaries at the conference:

- Marcus Callies (University of Bremen)
- Gaëtanelle Gilquin (Université catholique de Louvain)
- Barbara Lewandowska-Tomaszczyk (University of Lodz)
- Anke Lüdeling (Humboldt University Berlin)
- Tony McEnery (Lancaster University)
