The forthcoming international conference ‘Computational and Corpus-based Phraseology’ (Europhras 2022) will take place in Malaga on 28, 29 and 30 September 2022.
The conference will focus on interdisciplinary approaches to phraseology and invites submissions on a wide range of topics, covering, but not limited to: computational, corpus-based, psycholinguistic and cognitive approaches to the study of phraseology, and practical applications in computational linguistics, translation, lexicography and language learning, teaching and assessment.
These topics cover include the following:
Computational approaches to the study of multiword expressions, e.g. automatic detection, classification and extraction of multiword expressions; automatic translation of multiword expressions; computational treatment of proper names; multiword expressions in NLP tasks and applications such as parsing, machine translation, text summarisation, term extraction, web search;
Corpus-based approaches to phraseology, e.g. corpus-based empirical studies of phraseology, task-orientated typologies of phraseological units (e.g. for annotation, lexicographic representation, etc.), annotation schemes, applications in applied linguistics and more specifically translation, interpreting, lexicography, terminology, language learning, teaching and assessment (see also below);
Phraseology in mono- and bilingual lexicography and terminography, e.g. new forms of presenting phraseological units in dictionaries and other lexical resources based on corpus-based and corpus-driven approaches; domain-specific terminology;
Phraseology in translation and cross-linguistic studies, e.g. use parallel and comparable corpora for translating of phraseological units; phraseological units in computer-aided translation; study of phraseology across languages;
Phraseology in specialised languages and language dialects, e.g. phraseology of specialised languages, study of phraseological use in different dialects or varieties of a specific language;
Phraseology in language learning, teaching and assessment: e.g. second language/bilingual processing of phraseological units and formulaic language; phraseological units in learner language;
Theoretical and descriptive approaches to phraseology, e.g. phraseological units and the lexis-grammar interface, the relevance of phraseology for theoretical models of grammar, the representation of phraseological units in constituency and dependency theories, phraseology and its interaction with semantics;
Cognitive and psycholinguistic approaches: e.g. cognitive models of phraseological unit comprehension and production; on-line measures ofphraseological unitprocessing(e.g. eye tracking, event-related potentials, self-paced reading); phraseology and language disorders; phraseology and text readability;
The above list is indicative and not exhaustive. Any submission presenting a study related to the alternative terms of phraseological units, multiword expressions, multiword units, formulaic language or polylexical expressions, will be considered.
Submissions and publication
The conference invites submissions reporting original unpublished work. Europhras 2022 invites three types of submissions: regular papers, short papers and poster presentations.
• Submissions as regular papers should not exceed 15 pages including references; their minimum length should be 12 pages. The accepted regular papers will be published in a Springer LNAI volume which will be available at the time of the conference. The regular papers should be written in English. • Short papers should not exceed 7 pages excluding references; they should be minimum 5 pages long. The accepted short papers will be published as conference e-proceedings with ISBN, will be assigned a DOI and will be also available at the time of the conference. Short papers can be in English or Spanish. • Poster presentations should not exceed 4 pages excluding references. Accepted papers for poster presentations will be included in the conference e-proceedings with ISBN along with the short papers and will be assigned a DOI. Poster presentations can be in English or Spanish.
The conference will not consider the submission and evaluation of abstracts only.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the Programme Committee. Submission is electronic, using the Softconf START conference management system. For further instructions please follow the submission guidelines at the conference website. Authors of accepted papers will receive guidelines regarding how to produce camera-ready versions of their papers for inclusion in the proceedings. The Springer volume and the e-proceedings will be both available at the conference. In addition, call for follow up papers will be announced after the conference and the accepted papers reporting these new studies will be published as peer-reviewed and/or indexed volume (in English). A collection of papers in Spanish will be published in an indexed journal (2023).
