ICAME34 English corpus linguistics on the move: Applications and implications Santiago de Compostela 22-26 May 2013
ICAME is an international organization of linguists and information scientists working with English machine-readable texts. The aim of the organization is to collect and distribute information on English language material available for computer processing and on linguistic research completed or in progress on the material, to compile an archive of English text corpora in machine-readable form, and to make material available to research institutions.
The programme will consist of full papers, work-in-progress reports, poster sessions, software demonstrations, as well as pre-conference workshops. The following speakers have agreed to give plenary lectures:
Jenny Cheshire (Queen Mary, University of London)
Holger Diessel (Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena)
Marianne Hundt (University of Zurich)
Ken Hyland (The University of Hong Kong)
The conference hotel and main venue is NH Obradoiro, a 5-star hotel located 10 minutes from the old town. Plenary lectures will be held at the Faculty of Philology, situated just across the road from the hotel, in the North Campus of the University of Santiago de Compostela. Registration and information on accommodation and conference costs will appear in the second circular and on our website in late January 2013.
There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, and a half-day excursion including a boat trip on the Rias Baixas and a visit to the Condes de Albarei winery on Friday. The gala dinner on Saturday night will take place at the conference hotel. The post-conference city tour will give the delegates the opportunity to discover the beauty of Santiago, a UNESCO World Heritage City.
