The 7th Biennial Conference on the Linguistic of Contemporary English will take place in Vigo from 28 to 30 September 2017. The conference is organised by the LVTC (Language Variation and Textual Categorisation) research group at the University of Vigo.
The aim of the BICLCE (formerly ICLCE) conference is to encourage the cross-fertilisation of ideas between different frameworks and research traditions, all of which may address any aspect of the linguistics of contemporary English. Traditionally, syntax (specifically constructions), sociolinguistics and discourse analysis are three of the focus areas of the conference.
Previous BICLCE conferences were held in Edinburgh (2005), Toulouse (2007), London (2009), Osnabrück (2011), Austin TX (2013) and Madison WI (2015), along the same lines.
