Applications for the second iteration of the Adam Kilgarriff Prize are now invited. Full information for potential applicants can be found here.
The Adam Kilgarriff endowment fund has published its AKP Annual Report 2017.
On behalf of the Trustees of the Adam Kilgarriff Prize, I am delighted to announce that the inaugural Prize has been awarded to Paweŀ Rutkowski of the University of Warsaw. Dr. Rutkowski heads up a team which has developed (and continues to develop) a large annotated corpus of Polish sign language and the fully corpus-based Dictionary of Polish Sign Language.
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.
