We are very pleased to announce that the web page for the Adam Kilgarriff Prize is now live at:
The Adam Kilgarriff Prize is intended to recognise outstanding work in the fields to which Adam contributed so much: corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, and lexicography. It will be awarded biennially for an original publication, a piece of software, a product or service, or any combination of the above.
The first iteration of the Prize will be awarded in conjunction with the eLex conference taking place in Leiden, The Netherlands, in the autumn of 2017. The deadline for applications will be 30th September 2016, and the winner will be announced by 31st December 2016. Full details about the Prize and the application procedure can be found on the site.
Along with the other Trustees, I look forward to receiving your applications!
Michael Rundell (on behalf of the other Trustees: Miloš Jakubíček, Ilan Kernerman, Iztok Kosem, Pavel Rychlý, and Carole Tiberius)
