After a successful Plin Day on Computer-Mediated Communication that took place in Louvain-la-Neuve in May 2016, we are preparing a monograph to be published by the Presses universitaires de Louvain, Cahiers du Cental, UCL, in the fall of 2017. *The monograph is also open to researchers who could not attend the conference*.
We invite unpublished original work with a linguistic focus on the collection, analysis and processing of computer-mediated communication. The data can be written (social media posts and messages, forums posts and answers, news comments, blogs posts, e-mails, SMS, WhatsApp, Skype…) or oral/video (YouTube, appear.in, Multiplayer Games Conversations –audio, gestural…).
Any linguistic topic can be submitted and, in particular: • CMC and health • CMC and journalism • CMC in language learning & teaching • CMC open corpora • Multimodal aspects of CMC • Multilingual aspects of CMC • Named-entity recognition in CMC • Natural Language Processing of CMC • Sociolinguistic studies and discourse analysis of CMC
