The submission proposals for the 13th biennial Teaching and Language Corpora (TaLC) Conference <http://www.educ.cam.ac.uk/events/conferences/talc2018/> at the University of Cambridge opens today.
We request abstracts of 500 words (not counting the reference list) for paper presentations. Submissions for poster presentations and 7/14 presentations may be shorter (300-500 words not counting references). Generally, we suggest submitting an abstract for a poster rather than a paper presentation for (a) reports on research in its very early phases with no intermediate or final results to report or (b) reports on new corpus data resources. Paper presentations will consist of a 20-minute talk followed by 5-6 minutes for questions and discussion and 4-5 minutes to change rooms. Papers reporting on empirical research should represent either completed work, or work in progress where some results can be reported. Presentations that take the form of a software demonstration are also welcome. There will also be pre-conference workshops on 18 July. If you are interested in organising one of the workshops, please contact the organisers (talc2018cambridge at gmail.com) with a brief proposal and proposed timeline (morning, afternoon or all-day workshop). Once the conference website indicates that the maximum number of workshops has been reached, no further proposals can be accommodated.
Topics that are within the scope of TaLC include, but are not necessarily limited to, corpus- based approaches to language learning, teaching and assessment in the following areas:
o Teaching first and second languages (including data-driven learning materials and student-centered linguistic investigation) o Research on second language acquisition and learner corpus research o Learner language o Teaching languages for specific purposes o Using corpora across the curriculum, from primary education to HE o Teaching interpreting and translation with corpora o Teaching literature, culture and history with corpora o Teaching intercultural communication and corpora o Developing pedagogic grammars and learner dictionaries o Developing corpora/tools/resources for language learning and teaching o Teacher education and language corpora o Teaching of corpus methods to students and researchers in linguistics (and other areas of inquiry) o Mobile language learning/teaching and corpora
Abstracts should be submitted through our online submission system: https://easychair.org/my/conference.cgi?conf=talc2018 <https://easychair.org/my/conference.cgi?conf=talc2018>
