American Association for Corpus Linguistics
10065 - 100th Street
Edmonton, AB T5J 0N6


This conference continues the tradition of previous conferences of the American Association for Corpus Linguistics and the American Association for Applied Corpus Linguistics, covering diverse aspects of corpus-based research in linguistics. The conference is a key venue for the presentation of corpus-based research in North America and attracts a significant number of participants from a wide range of countries. 2009 will be the first year that the conference is being held outside of the USA. Papers are welcome from a range of subfields, including corpus linguistics and endangered languages, corpus creation, open source corpora (philosophy and practice), corpus annotation, linguistic analyses of corpora, visualization of large data sets, register/genre variation, lexicography, parallel corpora, tagging and parsing, software development, and the use of corpora in language learning and teaching.


Pre-conference workshops will be offered on the use of XML in corpus construction and on ELAN, an XML compatible tool for annotating audio and video. Faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars are invited to submit abstracts for 15-minute papers on any of the topics listed above.
