Adam Kilgarriff Prize Announcement

We are pleased to announce the establishment of the Adam Kilgarriff Prize, in honour of our brilliant and much-loved colleague Adam, who died last year.

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. The aim is to encourage younger researchers, so applicants must be under 40 at the point when nominations close. The prize will be awarded to an individual researcher for an original publication, a piece of software, a product or service, or any combination of the above.
