NOTE: Abstract submission is closed.
Paper presentations will consist of a 20-minute talk followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Papers reporting on empirical research should represent either completed work, or work in progress where some results can be reported. Presentations that take the form of a software demonstration are welcome.
Topics that are within scope for TaLC include, but are not necessarily limited to, corpus-based approaches to language learning/teaching and assessment to any of the following:
- teaching first and second language (including data-driven learning materials and student-centred linguistic investigation)
- teaching languages for specific purposes
- teaching interpreting and translation
- teaching culture and history
- teaching literature
- teaching intercultural communication
- developing pedagogic grammars and learner dictionaries
- developing corpora/tools/resources
- teacher education
- research on second language acquisition and learner corpus research
- teaching of corpus methods to students and researchers in linguistics
We request abstracts of 500 words, not counting the reference list, for paper presentations. Submissions for poster presentations may be shorter (300-500 words not counting references). Typically, we would suggest submission of a poster abstract, rather than a paper presentation abstract, for: (a) reports on research in its very earliest phases with no intermediate or final results to report; (b) reports on new corpus data resources.
Abstracts should be submitted through our online submission system:
The deadline for abstract submission is 15 January 2016.
