AACL covers all aspects of corpus linguistics. The conference continues the

Massachusetts-Boston (2001).

Sub-fields covered by AACL 2009 include corpus linguistics and endangered
languages, open source corpora (philosophy and practice), corpus creation,
corpus annotation, linguistic analyses of corpora, visualization of large
data
sets, register/genre variation, lexicography, parallel corpora, tagging and
parsing, software development, and the use of corpora in language learning
and
teaching.
