in conjunction with
International Conference ‘Computational and Corpus-based Phraseology’
Recent advances and interdisciplinary approaches

This workshop is for students at all levels (Bachelor-, Master-, and PhD-students) to present their ongoing work. The aim of this workshop is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between young researchers by providing an excellent opportunity to present and discuss their work in progress or completed projects to an international research audience and receive feedback from senior researchers. The research being presented can come from any topic area related to phraseology 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.
