Announcement Number:1
Contact Information:Marlies Jansegers,

The conference seeks to provide a forum for fruitful exchanges of ideas between researchers over topics and issues such as the creation and relative merits of different types of corpora, new annotation and parsing techniques, the use of advanced statistical methods and models, the triangulation of corpus data with methods from psycholinguistics and other neighbouring disciplines, the discourse-grammar interface, and more generally the impact of corpus linguistics on linguistic theory.

Keynote speakers:
- Gert De Sutter (Ghent University, Belgium)
- Anke Lüdeling (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany)
- Marieke Meelen (University of Cambridge, United Kingdom)
- Maria del Carmen Parafita Couto (Leiden University, the Netherlands)
- Florent Perek (University of Birmingham, United Kingdom)
- Sali Tagliamonte (University of Toronto, Canada)

Call for Papers:
Papers are invited that enhance our knowledge and understanding of individual languages through the use of corpus-linguistic methods in the description and theoretical analysis of the grammar of natural languages, and/or higlight the implications of corpus-linguistic work for our discipline at large. Focal areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- the use of corpora in the description of grammatical patterns (including the discourse-grammar interface, grammatical aspects of code-switching etc.) from language-particular or contrastive/crosslinguistic perspectives
- tools, methods and techniques in the assembly, annotation and grammar-related analysis of corpora
- the characteristics and relative merits of (combinations of) different types of corpora in the study of grammatical patterns
- the use of statistical and quantitative methods and the triangulation of corpus-linguistic results with data from other (e.g. experimental) approaches
- the interaction of corpus linguistics with neighbouring disciplines such as computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, translation studies, etc.
- the identification and modelling of (different types of) grammatical variation using corpus methods and the link between synchronic variation and change-in-progress
- the use of advanced corpus-linguistic and statistical methods in historical linguistics
- the impact of corpus linguistics on our understanding of grammar, language change and the foundational concepts of linguistics at large

We welcome abstracts for 20-minute oral presentations (plus 10 minutes for discussion). Abstracts should be fully anonymous and clearly state the research question(s), approach, method, data, and (expected) results. They should not exceed 500 words, excluding data, figures, and references, and must be submitted through EasyChair at by November 30th, 2021. All submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least two reviewers of the programme committee.

Each individual may submit up to two abstracts: one as sole or first author, one as second author. The conference language is English.
