to be held in Prague, Czech Republic
on 24 – 28 May 2017
The theme of the conference is Corpus et Orbis: Interpreting the World through Corpora
The conference will follow the typical ICAME format: on Wednesday, we will start with pre-conference workshops (which may start before lunch), which will be followed by the first plenary lecture and a welcome reception. Other regulars include the boat trip on Friday afternoon and the gala dinner on Saturday evening. The conference will end at lunchtime on Sunday.
The conference will be held at the Faculty of Arts, Charles University. The venue is in the city centre, overlooking the Vltava River and the Prague Castle, within easy reach from most parts of the city by the underground or by other means of public transport. Links to several accommodation options will be provided at the conference website before registration opens.
The programme will comprise workshop sessions, four plenary lectures, full papers, work-in-progress reports, and a poster session.
The following speakers have agreed to give plenaries at the conference:
