8th TEACHING AND LANGUAGE CORPORA CONFERENCE
Instituto Superior de Línguas e Administração (ISLA), Lisbon
3 July 2008 (pre-conference tutorials and workshops)
4-6 July 2008 (main conference)
Following the previous seven and highly successful TaLC conferences in
Lancaster (1994 and 1996), Oxford (1998), Graz (2000), Bertinoro
(2002), Granada (2004) and Paris (2006), the 8th international
Teaching and Language Corpora conference (TaLC 8) will bring together
practitioners and theorists with a common interest in the use of
- first and second language teaching and learning
- language awareness raising
- teaching languages for specific purposes
- student-centered linguistic investigation
- interpreting and translation studies
- cultural and historical studies
- teaching literature
- developing pedagogic grammars and learner dictionaries
TaLC 8 invites proposals for position papers, reports of work in
progress, case-histories of successful corpus applications, and
introductions to relevant new resources. Proposals may be for
20-minute papers or posters or software demonstrations.
We also welcome proposals for pre-conference tutorials and workshops.
This year, we would particularly like this to include hands-on
workshops on the use of corpora to teach specific languages,
especially English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish.
The official language of the main conference is English.
Language-specific pre-conference workshops should be presented in the
language being focused on.
Proposals for papers, posters and software demos should be sent before
15 February 2008. Pre-conference tutorials and workshop proposals
should be sent before 31 January 2008.
All proposals will be blind reviewed. Authors of those accepted for
inclusion will be notified by 30 April.
