*Call for papers*

The twelfth Web as Corpus workshop (WAC-XII) aims to unite (web) corpus creators and all types of (web) corpus users from corpus/theoretical linguistics, computational linguistics, cognitive science, etc. We invite papers dealing with the fundamental questions mentioned above. In addition, we invite papers dealing with the whole range of applied and fundamental topics from both corpus/theoretical linguistic and computational linguistics which have characterised WAC workshops, including but not limited to:

- Data selection and collection (discovery and/or crawling) - Linguistic post-processing of web data - Analysis of web corpora (assessment of the distribution of genres, registers, topics, etc.) - Comparison of web corpus data with other types of corpus data (traditional corpora, linguistic data from social media, etc.) - Case studies in corpus/theoretical or computational linguistics where web data have been used - Case studies in digital lexicography, for example using SketchEngine? - Research specifically related to the validity of web data in corpus/theoretical and computational linguistics - Web data in psycholinguistic research and cognitive modelling - Web corpora for language models and word embeddings

*Format and submission*

Like LREC 2020, WAC-XII asks for full papers from 4 pages to 8 pages (plus more pages for references if needed) , which must strictly follow the LREC stylesheet available on the LREC 2020 website. No distinction between long and short papers will be made, but papers should have an appropriate length given their content. Appropriate time slots for oral presentations will be allocated according to the length of each paper. Papers must be submitted through START [URL tba] and will undergo blind peer-review. All papers will be published in the LREC 2020 proceedings.
