***************************************************** Call for Participation: Corpus Linguistics Fest (CLiF) *****************************************************

June 6-10, 2016 Indiana University - Bloomington, IN, USA http://cl.indiana.edu/clif16/

******** The Fest ********

Corpus Linguistics has become important in Linguistics, not only as a methodology, but also as a theory. Corpus Linguistic methods are often used for exploring linguistic patterns, yet the techniques and methodologies may not be very intuitive for linguists or at odds with the type of research done in some parts of the field. The Corpus Linguistics Fest (CLiF) at Indiana University will be a week-long event to provide a space for linguists, psycholinguists, computational linguists, and anyone else wishing to explore the use of corpus data and to understand the methodologies and practices of Corpus Linguistics. With theoretical and practical sessions Monday-Thursday, participants will have chances to develop skills through courses on:

Statistical methods for corpora (using R)

Tools for annotating and searching corpora

Learner corpora and Second Language Acquisition research

For more information about the courses, see http://cl.indiana.edu/clif16/courses.html.

In addition, the Friday of CLiF will feature workshop-style (refereed) presentations targeted at younger researchers. Papers based on these presentations will be published in online proceedings (see http://cl.indiana.edu/clif16/callforpapers.html). The deadline for submission is April 15, 2016.

With the relaxed environment of the fest, the small collegiate town (Bloomington, IN), and the friendly discussions covering a range of expertise, students and researchers are sure to have a stimulating week.
