Please circulate the following flier on the ICAME'91 Open Day to anyone
who may wish to attend. The principles apply to Corpora of other languages,
not just English, so linguists working on other languages might well be
interested as well; I realise that not many people are likely to
travel overseas just for a one-day gathering, but perhaps the Open Day
might be of interest to anyone who plans to be in England at the time on
other business.

The International Computer Archive of Modern English (ICAME) annual
conference is the principal meeting place for linguists and computer
scientists using English language Corpora in their research. Recently
there has been a surge of interest in Corpus-based research in the wider
speech and language technology community. For the benefit of this wider
community, the 12th ICAME Conference will include an Open Day, when
leading ICAME researchers will give overviews of the stages in the
"Corpus life cycle":
