First Call for Papers

Following the success of CL 2001, 2003 and 2005, Corpus Linguistics 2007 will once again be organised by the Universities of Birmingham and Lancaster and will be hosted by the Centre for Corpus Research, University of Birmingham UK.

Abstracts are invited for presentations at the conference. Four categories of abstracts are invited:

Papers. Individual papers will be allocated 20 minutes. Paper Abstracts should be no more than 300 words.

Posters. Poster Abstracts should be no more than 200 words.

Colloquia. These usually take the form of between 4 and 8 papers, with time for audience discussion. We will accommodate short colloquia (2 hours, about 4 speakers) and longer colloquia (4 hours, about 8 speakers). Colloquium Abstracts should be no more than 1000 words (for colloquia of 2 hours) or 2000 words (for colloquia of 4 hours). The abstract should include a rationale for the colloquium, an indication of how much of the time will be allocated to audience discussion, and an abstract for each of the proposed papers.

Workshops. These usually include one or two short presentations and substantial audience participation. We will accommodate short workshops (1 hour) and longer workshops (2 hours). Workshop Abstracts should be no more than 300 words (for a workshop of 1 hour) or 600 words (for a workshop of 2 hours) and should describe the organisation of the workshop and the nature of the audience participation.

All abstracts should be in English, though we encourage proposals for colloquia to be given in languages other than English.

Closing date for abstracts: 15th December 2006.
