International Conference ‘Computational and Corpus-based Phraseology’
Recent advances and interdisciplinary approaches
London, 13-14 November 2017


The forthcoming international conference ‘Computational and
Corpus-based Phraseology – recent advances and interdisciplinary
approaches’ will take place in London on 13 and 14 November 2017

Conference topics

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.

These 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 also 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 terminology

- 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 semantics

- 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 readability

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.

The official language of the conference is English.

Submissions and Publication

The conference invites submissions reporting original unpublished work.

EUROPHRAS’2017 invites three types of submissions:

((Regular papers)): these papers will not be exceeding 15 pages
including references 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 (excluding
references) and will be published by Tradulex as conference
e-proceedings with ISBN. The proceedings will be available at the time
of the conference

((Poster presentations)): these papers will not exceed 4 pages
(excluding references) and will be included in the conference
e-proceedings along with the short papers

Submission is electronic, using the Softconf START conference
management system. For further instructions please follow the
submission guidelines at the conference website.

The conference will not consider the submission and evaluation of
abstracts only.

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.

Authors of accepted papers will receive guidelines regarding how to
produce camera-ready versions of their papers for inclusion in the

All published papers will have a DOI assigned.


29 May 2017 – deadline for submitting papers
17 July 2017 – all authors notified of decisions
5 September 2017 – deadline for final version of all types of papers
13-14 November 2017 – conference takes place in London
