Meeting Description:
The conference will focus on interdisciplinary approaches to phraseology and
invites submissions on a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to:
computational, corpus-based, psycholinguistic and cognitive approaches to the
study of phraseology, and practical applications in computational linguistics,
translation, lexicography and language learning, teaching and assessment.

The forthcoming international conference ‘Computational and Corpus-based
Phraseology –  Recent advances and interdisciplinary approaches’ is jointly
organised by the European Association for Phraseology EUROPHRAS, the
University of Wolverhampton (Research Institute of Information and Language
Processing) and Association for Computational Linguistics – Bulgaria.

Europhras and the Sketch Engine are the official sponsors of the conference.

Call for Papers:
The topics cover but are not limited to the following:
– Computational approaches to the study of multiword expressions, e.g.
automatic detection, classification and extraction of multiword expressions;
automatic translation of multiword expressions; computational treatment of
proper names; multiword expressions in NLP tasks and applications such as
parsing, machine translation, text summarisation, term extraction, web search.

– Corpus-based approaches to phraseology, e.g. corpus-based empirical studies
of phraseology, task-orientated typologies of phraseological units (e.g. for
annotation, lexicographic representation, etc.), annotation schemes,
applications in applied linguistics and more specifically translation,
interpreting, lexicography, terminology, language learning, teaching and
assessment (see below)

– Phraseology in mono- and bilingual lexicography and terminography, e.g. new
forms of presenting phraseological units in dictionaries and other lexical
resources based on corpus-based and corpus-driven approaches; domain-specific

– Phraseology in translation and cross-linguistic studies, e.g. use parallel
and comparable corpora for translating of phraseological units; phraseological
units in computer-aided translation; study of phraseology across languages

– Phraseology in specialised languages and language dialects, e.g. phraseology
of specialised languages, study of phraseological use in different dialects or
varieties of a specific language

– Phraseology in language learning, teaching and assessment: e.g. second
language/bilingual processing of phraseological units and formulaic language;
phraseological units in learner language

– Theoretical and descriptive approaches to phraseology, e.g. phraseological
units and the lexis-grammar interface, the relevance of phraseology for
theoretical models of grammar, the representation of phraseological units in
constituency and dependency theories, phraseology and its interaction with

– Cognitive and psycholinguistic approaches: e.g. cognitive models of
phraseological unit comprehension and production; on-line measures of
phraseological unit processing (e.g. eye tracking, event-related potentials,
self-paced reading); phraseology and language disorders; phraseology and text

As mentioned earlier, the above list is indicative and not exhaustive. Any
submission presenting a study related to the alternative terms of
phraseological units, multiword expressions, multiword units, formulaic
language or polylexical expressions, will be considered.

Submissions and Publication:

EUROPHRAS’2017 invites three types of submissions:
Regular papers: these papers will not be exceeding 15 pages and their minimum
length will be 12 pages. The accepted regular papers will be published in a
Springer LNAI volume which will be available at the time of the conference
Short papers: these papers will not exceed 7 pages and will be available as
conference e-proceedings with ISBN and will be available at the time of the
Poster presentations: these papers will not exceed 4 pages and will be
included in the conference e-proceedings along with the short papers

Each submission will be reviewed by at least 3 reviewers who will be either
members of the Programme Committee or reviewers proposed by Programme
Committee members.
