The conference aims to cover a wide range of topics related to research on Slavic languages:
- corpus research on any Slavic language, including also contrastive topics using parallel or comparable corpora;
- development of Slavic language resources: corpora, lexica, annotation, tools;
- applications of Slavic language resources for language technologies.
The official language of the conference is English.
The main conference will consist of plenary lectures
https://slavicorp.ff.cuni.cz/plenary-speakers/ and regular presentations of full papers. Full papers will be allowed 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion.
The conference will be accompanied by the workshop on language variability and multi-dimensional analysis in the form of a panel of experts involved in variability analyses, including a lecture delivered by Prof. Douglas Biber. The workshop will be free and open to allconference participants.
We invite submissions of extended abstracts that reflect any of the conference topics. The extended abstracts should be between 500 and 800 words long (excluding references) and they are to be submitted on-line through EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=slavicorp2018
The deadline for submission of the abstracts has been extended to *28 February 2018*. The abstracts will be anonymously peer-reviewed by the Programme Committee, notification of acceptance will be sent out by the end of April 2018.
As the primary goal of the conference is to create an open meeting place for researchers in Slavic languages and to serve as a platform for a fruitful exchange of ideas, we are not planning to print any proceedings. However, the extended abstracts will be published online on the conference web.
Detailed information about the conference fee will be provided in April, once the conference budget is finalized. However, our preliminary estimate is that it will NOT exceed 200 EUR (including the catering during coffee breaks and lunches).
The conference is organized by the Institute of the Czech National Corpus, Faculty of Arts, Charles University, Prague.
