The Spanish Association of Corpus Linguistics (AELINCO) and the local
Organizing Committee are pleased to announce that the 5th International
Conference on Corpus Linguistics (CILC2013) will be hosted by the University
Institute of Modern Applied Languages at the University of Alicante on 14 to
16 March 2013.

Since corpus work has taken on a more relevant role in descriptive and
applied studies on the various facets of language, availability and variety
of telectronic corpus and tools for their exploitation and analysis
have proliferated and many more are on the horizon. The availabity of such
diverse resources offers many opportunities for researchers, language
professionals, and language services providers.  However, learning to use
and apply these resources still poses serious challenges. The theme for this
conference edition is 'Corpus Resources for Descriptive and Applied Studies:
Current Challenges and Future Directions.' and its aim is to promote the
submission of proposals for oral presentations and posters on issues related

- New theoretical issues arising from the work with corpus in
the current scenario
- Applications of corpora for terminology, translation,
lexicography, teaching and language acquisition, etc.
- The creation of corpus and its exploitation in descriptive and
applied research
- The use of technologies for the analysis of texts for
different purposes
- Advances in computer technology for the compilation, use and
analysis of corpus.
- Corpus and ICT
