TechLING is an international conference devoted to the application of technology to languages. We are looking for contributions that present different technology-based approaches, both academic and non-academic, to the study, use and commercialization of languages. Proposals are expected to report on results achieved through the combination of languages/linguistics and technology, involving one, two or all of the major areas of the conference:

    Language teaching and learning: language acquisition and learning, language disorders, digital educational resources, multimodality, mobile learning, distance education, languages for specific purposes;
    Language industry: translation, interpreting, localization, editing and proofreading, terminology, lexicography, speech technology, data mining, semantic web, computer-assisted language therapy and rehabilitation;
    Corpus linguistics: corpus design, corpus compilation tasks, types of corpora, corpus query systems.

Please note that the lists of subtopics under each main topic are intended as guidelines for submission, and hence are by no means exhaustive.
