CMC and Social Media Cor­pora for the Human­it­ies is the 5th edi­tion of an annual con­fer­ence series ded­ic­ated to the col­lec­tion, annota­tion, pro­cessing and exploit­a­tion of cor­pora of com­puter­-­me­di­ated com­mu­nic­a­tion (CMC) and social media for research in the human­it­ies. The con­fer­ence brings together lan­guage-­centered research on CMC and social media in lin­guist­ics, philo­lo­gies, com­mu­nic­a­tion sci­ences, media and social sci­ences with research ques­tions from the fields of cor­pus and com­pu­ta­tional lin­guist­ics, lan­guage tech­no­logy, text tech­no­logy, and machine learning.

The con­fer­ence will include a post-­con­fer­ence workshop on using the TEI for annot­at­ing CMC and social media resources (4 Octo­ber). The con­fer­ence will be fol­lowed by the 4th Learner Cor­pus Research Conference and its pre­ced­ing con­fer­ence work­shop, which will both be held at the same venue from 4-7 October.
