We are glad to announce the call for papers of JADT 2012, 11th International Conference on the Statistical Analysis of Textual Data, that will be held in Liege (Belgium), from 13 to 15 June 2010 (organised by the LASLA – Laboratoire d’Analyse statistique des Langues anciennes of the University of Liege and by the SeSLA – Séminaire des Sciences du Langage of the Facultés universitaires Saint-Louis, Brussels).

This biennial conference, which has constantly been gaining importance since its first occurrence in Barcelone (1990), is open to all scholars and researchers working in the field of textual data analysis; ranging from lexicography to the analysis of political discourse, from information retrieval to marketing research, from computational linguistics to sociolinguistics, from text mining to content analysis. After the success of the previous meetings, the three-day conference in Liège will continue to provide a workshop-style forum through technical paper sessions, invited talks, and panel discussions.
