The Research Groups ACTRES (Contrastive Analysis and Translation English-Spanish) and TRACE (Translation and Censorship) together with the Department of Modern Languages at the University of León are pleased to announce the 4th International Symposium Parallel Corpora PaCor 2023, to be held at the Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, University of León, Spain, on November 22-24, 2023.

From its first edition at the University of Santiago de Compostela in 2016, PaCor has stood out as a meeting point for researchers who compile, design and use parallel (and other types of multilingual) corpora in different areas. Linguists, engineers and statisticians cooperate in developing bilingual and multilingual corpora and tools for corpus analyses of increasing complexity to meet the needs of researchers in a wide range of different disciplines including Lexicography, Contrastive Linguistics, Translation Studies, Language Teaching and Learning, and other global cross-cultural and cross-linguistic communication areas. PaCor aims to encourage fine-grained cross-linguistic research comprising two or more languages (one of which should be Spanish) from a broad range of theoretical, methodological and empirical perspectives. New challenges regarding advances in computation will find their space here too. We hope this 4th edition of PaCor helps researchers share new findings and technical developments with the whole corpus linguistic community and raise questions for further investigation in the field.

We look forward to welcoming you in León in 2023!
