Just a quick update: the registration for the CL2017 conference at the University of Birmingham (24-28 July) is closing very soon on 30 July. [I shall admit openly that I’m part of the organising committee and therefore advertising it – but genuinely think this conference will be a good one!] This conference series is one of the biggest corpus linguistics events in Europe that runs bi-annually and has been hosted at the universities of Birmingham, Lancaster and Liverpool. The CL2017 programme contains streams related to a variety of CL applications. Of particular interest will be the plenary papers by Susan Conrad, Andrew Hardie, Susan Hunston, Christian Mair, Dan McIntyre and Mike Scott.
