9th International Conference on Corpus Linguistics

3-6 July 2017, Grenoble

Call for Papers:


The International Conference on Corpus Linguistics (JLC), founded by Geoffrey Williams in 2001 at the University of South Brittany, Lorient, France regularly draws together an interdisciplinary community whose research focus is corpus linguistics. After seven gatherings in Lorient and an interlude in Orleans in 2015 (8th International Conference on Corpus Linguistics), the conference will alight in Grenoble beginning July 2017, organized by the LIDILEM Laboratory with contributions from LIG, ILCEA4, Litt&Arts and the MSH-Alpes.

Guest speakers include: Dominique Boutet, Thierry Chanier and Michaela Mahlberg.

The objective of JLC'17 is to (re)unite a community that adopts various approaches, be they methodological or disciplinary, to promote corpus linguistics, and to contribute to the evolution of practices in the field by building bridges between different approaches to digital corpora. The participants are invited to share and compare their knowledge of tools, experiences, and findings.

In the tradition of previous conferences, the JLC in Grenoble will offer three days of presentations, invited speakers and discussion sessions among the participants. Training sessions on tools and methods will be organized over a day and a half.

Expected contributions, based on written, oral or multimodal corpora, may relate to, but are not limited to:

1. Linguistic approaches to corpora
2. Methods and tools
3. Variations, genres, and discourse
4. Applications and uses of corpora for teaching and learning, translation, terminology...

Submissions for a presentation or a demonstration in French or English should not exceed three pages (excluding figures and bibliographic references). JLC2017 will adopt the EasyChair system to manage communication proposals. In addition to classic presentations, you may also propose a demonstration (identical submission guidelines).

A proposal for paper publications (collective publication, special issues...) will be considered following the conference.
