Topics that are within the scope of TaLC include, but are not necessarily limited to, corpus-based approaches to language learning, teaching and assessment in the following areas:
- Teaching first and second languages (including data-driven learning materials and student-centred linguistic investigation)
- Research on second language acquisition and learner corpus research
- Teaching languages for specific purposes, professional purposes, workplaces, business etc
- Using corpora across the curriculum (including all pedagogic contexts such as further, professional and other types of education)
- Teaching interpreting and translation
- Teaching literature, culture and history
- Teaching intercultural communication
- Developing pedagogic grammars and learner dictionaries
- Developing corpora/tools/resources for language learning and teaching
- Teacher education
- Teaching of corpus methods to students and researchers in linguistics (and other areas of inquiry)
- Mobile language learning/teaching and corpora.

Paper Presentations:

Abstract submissions for paper presentations will be 400-500 words (not counting the reference list, which should be limited to a maximum of 5 items, if included). Paper presentations will consist of a 20-minute talk followed by 5 minutes for questions[1]. Papers reporting on empirical research should represent either completed work or work in progress where some results can be reported. Presentations that take the form of a software demonstration are also welcome.


Abstract submissions for poster presentations will be 300-400 words (not counting references, which should be limited to a maximum of 5 items, if included). Generally, we suggest submitting an abstract for a poster rather than a paper presentation for (a) reports on research in its very early phases with no intermediate or final results to report or (b) reports on new corpus data resources.
