Assessing the potential of corpora
May 20, from 11.30 am
We have now finished accepting papers
(submission deadline passed March 15th)
The primary goal of this workshop is to convene users of corpora, from Poland and beyond, willing to exchange ideas and opinions on the feasibility and practicality of corpus-based methods in linguistic study, language teaching, and other applications.
Presentations will be of three types:
F – full papers (20 min. + 5 min. for questions)
S – shorter papers (15 min. + 5 min. for questions)
P – posters (1m x 1m – displayed on a special board in the workshop room + 5 min. recommendation talk in Session 2)
As detailed in the conference timetable, the workshop will feature one 120-minute and two 90-minute sessions, each of which will include 3-4 full and/or shorter papers. In addition, Session 1 will comprise poster recommendation talks, while Session 3 is planned to end with an open discussion addressing the workshop's major theme: The assessment of the potential of corpora.
Timetable for the workshop available here.
