ICAME 33 :: Call for papers

The purpose of the 33rd ICAME conference is to bring together people doing research in the various fields to which English corpus linguistics is central.

Conference theme

In accordance with the conference theme, "Corpora at the centre and crossroads of English linguistics", submissions are encouraged that show how corpus linguistics is crucial to the core business of English linguistics, viz. synchronic and diachronic language description based on sound methodology and argumentation, and concomitant theory-formation. We also particularly welcome abstracts that explore various crossroads with such areas as sociolinguistics, contrastive linguistics, literary stylistics, educational linguistics, language acquisition, the study of variation, the combination of corpus and experimental evidence, and other crossfertilizations involving English corpus data.

Presentation formats

Full papers will be allowed 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for discussion; work-in-progress reports will be 15 minutes long, including 5 minutes for discussion; and software demonstrations will be allowed 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for discussion. Posters (max. size A0, portrait format) will be presented in a special session and remain on display during the conference.

Submission of abstracts (now closed)

Abstracts should be between 400 and 500 words (exclusive of references) and should state research questions, approach, method, data and (expected) results. Authors may submit a maximum of two abstracts if at least one of these is co-authored. The deadline for submissions was 20 December 2011. Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously; notifications of acceptance will be sent out by the end of January 2012.
