*Parallel corpora: Creation and Applications. International Symposium*

Departamento de Filología Inglesa y Alemana Universidad de Santiago de Compostela 1-3 December 2016 http://www.usc.es/congresos/pacor

This Symposium is held by the research group SpatiAlEs (Spatial Relations German/Spanish) of the Department of English and German Philology (University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain). Main goals of this Symposium are to identify key challenges in building parallel corpora by bringing together different research perspectives with a special focus on the applications and to provide a platform for presentation of projects on parallel corpora where Spanish is the pivot language.

Papers are welcome from a range of subfields in three categories:

1. Design, annotation and visualization of parallel corpora regarding

their applications in

· contrastive linguistics

· human translation and translation learning

· machine translation

· language teaching and learning

· lexicography

2. Tools to meet the needs of the different applications

a. Methods to mine parallel corpora. Automatic extraction from the Web, use of other source texts. Issues.

b. Annotation, tagging, sentence and word alignment of parallel corpora.

c. Corpus Query and Visualization Tools for Parallel Corpora

3) Presentation of existing bilingual parallel corpora, in which Spanish is included or multilingual corpora in which Spanish is the pivot language. For this purpose presentations on currently online available corpora are particularly relevant.

Due to the widespread use of English in this field, the organizing team recommends English for submissions. Nevertherless Spanish, Portuguese and German are also accepted.

Papers of presented talks will be submitted to a peer review process. Those positively assessed will be published in the Conference Proceedings.

Please visit the workshop website (www.usc.es/congresos/pacor) for information about submission, registration and for updates:

The *deadline* for abstract submission is September 30*, 2016*.

*Notification of acceptance* will be sent out by October 15*, 2016*.

We look forward to seeing you in Santiago de Compostela.
