After a very successful conference on Computer-Mediated Communication and Social Media Corpora in Bolzano, Italy in October 2017 (cmccorpora17) we are preparing a post-conference monograph to be published by Clermont Auvergne University Publishing House, France in the fall of 2018 as part of their Linguistics collection Cahiers du Laboratoire de Recherche sur le Langage. An open-access version will also be made available.
We invite unpublished original work focusing on the collection, analysis and processing of computer-mediated communication, such as exchanges on social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), forum posts, news comments, wiki discussions and blog entries as well as e-mail, SMS, WhatsApp, YouTube and discussions in multimodal environments. Authors who did not present at the conference are also welcome.
