Meeting Description:

The 5th Learner Corpus Research Conference will be hosted by the Institute of Applied Linguistics, University of Warsaw, in Warsaw, Poland. It will be the next in the series of successful conferences which took place in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium) in 2011, Bergen (Norway) in 2013, Cuijk (the Netherlands) in 2015 and Bolzano/Bozen (Italy) in 2017.

The conference is organised under the aegis of the Learner Corpus Association. Its aim is to bring together researchers, software developers and language teachers with a common interest in the use of learner corpora for research on second language acquisition, as well as for the enhancement of language pedagogy and language assessment. More specifically, the LCR2019 Conference aims to showcase the latest developments in the field of learner corpus research pertaining to such issues as: description of learner language features and varieties, identification of tasks and learner variables, transfer studies, creation of pedagogical resources and assessment instruments, acquisition of language for specific purposes, development of innovative annotations and search engines for learner data, Natural Language Processing, data mining, automatic error detection and correction, as well as promotion of links with other research methodologies and new statistical methods of data analysis.
