Registration is done in two stages: first you must pre-register by 
completing the form requested after which we validate your 
pre-registration, based on the available places. You will receive two 
mails, one which gives you the places available in the workshops and 
another which confirms your pre-registration with a link to register 
permanently. Also at this stage you have to choose the workshop you want 
to attend. If you are having problems registering, you can contact 
Justin Duquesnoy (justin.duquesnoy at univ-lille3.fr).

There will be five workshops in parallel, from which you must choose one:

(1) Corpus linguistics: principles and methods
           (led by Dagmar Divjak, Univ. of Sheffield, UK)
(2) Categorical statistics in corpus linguistics with R
           (led by Dylan Glynn, Univ. of Lund, Sweden)
(3) Annotation and analysis of multimodal data using ELAN
           (led by Mark Tutton, Univ. of Nantes, France)
(4) Transcription and analysis of oral data using CLAN
           (led by Christophe Parisse, Univ. of Paris 10, France)
(5) Experimental methods of linguistics research
           (led by Efstathia Soroli, Univ. of Lille 3)

More detailed descriptions of the different workshop can be found on the 
web pages.

The number of places in each workshop is limited to 15, so do not 
hesitate to register. The workshop on R (workshop 2) is in principle 
already filled, contact Maarten Lemmens (maarten.lemmens at univ-lille3.fr) 
should you still be interested in following this workshop.
