    Lancaster University is pleased to offer six free training events that cover the techniques of corpus linguistics, computational analysis of language and geographical information systems (see the description of the individual schools below). The schools include both lectures and practical sessions that introduce the latest developments in the field and practical applications of cutting-edge analytical techniques. The summer schools are taught by leading experts in the field both from Lancaster University and other institutions (CASS Challenge Panel).

    The summer schools are intended primarily for postgraduate research students but applications from Masters-level students, postdoctoral researchers, senior researchers, and others will also be considered.

    Dates: 12 - 15 July (four days)

    Venue: Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK

    Application: Apply online. [The application process closes on 1st May 2016 or when a maximum number of registrations is reached.]

    N.B. Since the places in the summer schools are limited, we recommend applying early. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis.

    The summer schools are free to attend; the participants will arrange their own travel and accommodation (for travel details click here).
