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
