Meeting Description:

Computational and corpus linguistics (LCC, in Spanish) 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.
For the year 2020, we propose, in addition to the LCC, that the event also be opened to the field of Digital Humanities, since for this occasion we will have the collaboration of the University of Groningen and its Faculty of Arts.
That is why, from the University of Antioquia and its faculties of Communications, Engineering and the School of Languages and the University of Groningen, we are very cordially inviting you to send papers that take up one or more of the event topics.

Call for Papers:
