Welcome to ICAME

ICAME is an international group of linguists and data scientists working with English language corpora. The organization was founded in 1977 in Oslo, Norway, originally under the name of International Computer Archive of Modern English. The first “conference” was a symposium with 37 participants from 10 different countries held in 1979. Since then, the yearly ICAME conferences have grown into much bigger events, welcoming new members and long-term ICAMErs alike.

Anna-Brita Stenström

We are very sorry to hear that our friend, colleague and founding member of ICAME, Anna-Brita Stenström, has passed away in December 2023. She was co-editor of the ICAME Journal and honorary member of ICAME.

Anna-Brita has made groundbreaking contributions to Corpus Linguistics and to research in sociolinguistics in general and youth language in particular. We will miss her as a friend and colleague, and our thoughts are with family and friends.

Patricia Ronan, on behalf of the ICAME Executive Board
