Asia Pacific Corpus Linguistics Conferences
The biennial Asia-Pacific Corpus Linguistics Conference has been held in Auckland 2012, Hong Kong 2014, Beijing 2016, and Takamatsu 2018.
For a nostalgic return to a more innocent time, you can visit the Auckland conference website
We have set up a mailing list related to Corpus Linguistics in the Asia-Pacific region. Apparently, there is some difficulty for colleagues in China to subscribe because of the captcha. To subscribe, you can simply send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Asia Pacific Corpus Linguistics Association aims to promote the study and development of corpus linguistics research and applications in the Asia-Pacific Region. Through the website, the Association provides news on organisations and conferences related to corpus linguistics. One important purpose of the Association is to maintain the continuity of the Asia Pacific Corpus Linguistics Conferences and to provide a mechanism for selecting the location of future conferences. A steering committee has been formed in order to create an institutional structure for the holding of future conferences in the Asia-Pacific region. The following corpus linguists have agreed to take part in the committee: Michael Barlow (chair), Monika Bednarek, Winnie Cheng, Hitoshi Isahara, CK Jung, Yukio Tono, Naixing Wei
With great sadness, we have to report that Deny Kwary passed away very suddenly in June 2019. He was an active member of the Asian corpus linguistics community and was working on preliminary plans to hold an APCLC conference in Indonesia when he died. A memorial statement delivered at AsiaLex is available here.
