Meeting Description:

Initially, the 3rd International Congress of Computational and Corpus Linguistics had been scheduled to take place from 29 to 31 July, 2020 in Medellin, Colombia. For reasons beyond our control, this year the Congress is going online and will be postponed to October 21, 22 and 23, 2020.

Computational and Corpus Linguistics has been booming and developing in our Spanish-speaking countries, particularly in Colombia. Just in the past three years two important congresses were held in Colombia: the first in the city of Bogotá in 2017, by the Caro y Cuervo Institute; and the second, in 2018, by the University of Medellín; these congresses were preceded by the First Colombian Colloquium of Computational and Corpus Linguistics held in 2016, Universidad del Valle. On these occasions we had the opportunity to meet and discuss this topic with colleagues from Latin American countries and Spain and, in addition, there was the participation of experts from the Anglophone world.

Call for Papers:

The 3rd International Congress of Computational and Corpus Linguistics is going online and will be postponed to October 21, 22 and 23, 2020. The Congress had originally been scheduled to take place from 29 to 31 July this year in Medellin, Colombia.
Due to the imminent expansion of the coronavirus pandemics, the Organizing Committee came to the conclusion that it would not be possible to hold a face-to-face conference in July. It is not certain either for how long it would be necessary to postpone it because a face-to-face event involves people gatherings and national and international trips, among other things. Therefore, considering the interest in the Congress by the academic community, we believe that CILCC-2020 can be a quality event in which all our goals can be met, but in a virtual way.
Other changes come by the hand of virtuality. First, it is necessary to postpone all the dates related to this event. This is because this new modality requires starting over with the organization from a different perspective. Also, the deadlines for submissions are extended (see Important dates below). It is important to make clear that the event will now be free for both attendees and speakers.
We consider that celebrating the third CILCC online is a possibility to open up a space for science and academia in these dark times, since a good number of these kind of events has been postponed until the following year. In addition, we hope this option encourages many researchers and students who previously did not have the chance to participate in the event to submit their proposals and participate in the webinars.
The University of Antioquia, the University of Groningen and the other collaborating institutions guarantee all the technical support so that the Congress is carried out satisfactorily online. We invite you to participate either with your attendance or with a proposal. Please feel free share this call with your colleagues and other institutions.
