Meeting Description:

The Spanish Association for Corpus Linguistics (AELINCO) and the Organising Committee are delighted to release this invitation to participate in the X International Conference on Applied Linguistics and Corpora (CILC2018), which will be held at the Faculty of Arts (Filosofía y Letras) of the University of Extremadura (Cáceres, Spain) in May 2018 (9-11).

The theme of this edition—and the focus of some of the keynote addresses and many other papers— will be “Corpus Linguistics for the Study of the Influence of English on World Languages.” Thus, this edition of CILC constitutes an ideal discussion forum for the analysis of the methods, tools, and—above all—resources that Corpus Linguistics has made available to scholars and researchers whose interest lies with the indelible mark that English is leaving on practically every language in the world—many of which will hopefully be represented in this edition.

Keynote Speakers:

The following keynote speakers have already been confirmed:
Gisle Andersen (Norwegian School of Economics, Bergen, Noruega)

Alexandra D’Arcy (University of Victoria, BC, Canada)

Mark Davies (Brigham Young University, Utah, EE.UU.)

Michaela Mahlberg (University of Birmingham, UK)

For questions or queries (including suggestions for workshops and seminars), please contact us at

We hope to see you in Cáceres,
The Organising Committee of CILC2018.

2nd Call for Papers:

New Deadline: 15 February

As it has been customary in previous editions of CILC and in accordance with the AELINCO mandate, the conference welcomes other contributions that may enhance and deepen our understanding of Corpus Linguistics. These should fit into any of the nine thematic panels:

1. Corpus design, construction and typology
2. Corpus-based discourse analysis and literary analysis
3. Grammatical studies and corpora
4. Corpus-based lexicology and lexicography
5. Corpora, contrastive studies and translation
6. Corpus-based variation and language change
7. Corpus-based computational linguistics
8. Corpora, language acquisition and language teaching
9. Corpus linguistics and languages for specific purposes

Paper Proposals:

The Organising Committee welcomes proposals for papers (20 minutes), posters (A1 format), workshops, seminars, and roundtables that pivot around any of the thematic panels listed above.

You may submit your proposals (either in English or Spanish) starting on the date that the Conference website will be fully functional (October 1, 2017) until the final deadline (February 15, 2018). Proposals must not exceed 500 words (bibliography excluded) and should be submitted through the EasyChair platform to the relevant panel, where it will be reviewed. Each proposal can only be submitted to one panel.
