THEME: CORPUS LINGUISTICS: LANGUAGES, COMMUNITIES, MOBILITY The IVACS network aims to connect corpus researchers and postgraduates internationally. The theme of the 9th international conference is Corpus Linguistics: languages, communities, mobility and it is intended to reflect a deeper awareness of the central role played by languages, and language varieties, in our increasingly fluid societies. Through the use of corpus linguistics, the conference will draw on the diverse fields of study that can contribute to understanding the issues and concerns, as well as advantages and richness, that are found as communities experience increasing mobility. We are particularly interested in papers which draw on applied corpus research in the following areas, though these are in no way exclusive. Papers focusing on languages other than English, as well as language varieties and dialects are most welcome:

* Corpus Linguistics, mobility and communities

* Corpus Linguistics and Analysing Discourse

* Corpus Linguistics and Applied Linguistics

* Corpus methods and innovations

* Corpus Linguistics, Texts and Literature

* Corpus Linguistics and Speech

* Corpus Linguistics and Sociolinguistics

* Corpus Linguistics and Historic Linguistics
