Aston Corpus Conference for Postgraduate Researchers,
21 May 2009

Sponsored by ISLS
Institute for the Study of Language and Society,
School of Languages and Social Sciences,
Aston University, Birmingham, UK

As we received many more abstracts than expected this year and the abstracts
were of a very high standard, we have decided to hold a poster session in
addition to the presentations at the Aston Corpus Conference for Postgraduate
Researchers 2009. We are therefore delighted to open a call for additional
posters and are currently accepting submissions. In addition to new submissions
for posters, we also invite all presenters whose abstracts have already been
accepted to display posters and to take this opportunity to chat informally to
other participants about their work.

New submissions for posters, in the form of an abstract written in English, of
max 300 words (with bibliographical references) should be sent by 20 April 2009
to tanguayeaston.ac.uk. The preferred file formats are .doc and .pdf. Author's
name, affiliation, and contact details should be provided in a separate
attachment. Posters can focus on any corpus-related topic.

Those students who have already been accepted to present at the conference will
not need to apply separately, but should inform us by 20 April if they do want
to present a poster. Authors of accepted posters will be notified by 1 May 2009.

The objective of the Corpus Conference for Postgraduate Researchers, organized
by the ACORN project team of the School of Languages and Social Sciences at
Aston University, is to enable postgraduates to present their corpus-related
research in a friendly environment.

Aston Corpus Conference for Postgraduate Researchers,
will be followed by the Aston Corpus Symposium: Friday 22 May 2009

- Silvia Bernardini (University of Bologna, Italy)
- Nick Groom (University of Birmingham)
