    About APCLC 2016  

    The APCLC 2016 is the third of the Asia Pacific Corpus Linguistics Conference series under the auspices of Asia Pacific Corpus Linguistics Association. It is going to be held at Beihang University, Beijing, China from Friday 21 October 2016 to Sunday 23 October 2016. We wish to bring together corpus researchers on different lines in the Asia-Pacific region and other parts of the globe for a reunion, to discuss issues of interest and to exchange ideas and methods for research in this fast changing discipline. The whole event consists of a preconference workshop and the main conference which comprises plenary talks, special symposiums and concurrent sessions.
