The Faculty of English at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań is organizing the seventh edition of the Using Corpora in Contrastive and Translation Studies conference series in 2023.

UCCTS conference is a biennial international conference which was launched by Richard Xiao in 2008 to provide an international forum for the exploration of the theoretical and practical issues pertaining to the creation and use of corpora in contrastive and translation/interpreting studies.

Since 2008 UCCTS conference series that took place, among other, in Louvain-la-Neuve (2018) and Bertinoro (2021) has played a key role in advancing contrastive and translation studies by giving scholars of the sister disciplines the opportunity to meet and engage in discussions on research outcomes and ideas on how to effectively apply, enhance and further develop corpus methods to move both fields forward. A selection of papers presented at UCCTS appeared in special issues of journals important in both fields or edited volumes published, for example, by Routledge or Bloomsbury.

The seventh edition of the UCCTS conference will be held on 10-12th July 2023 in Poznań, Poland.

For the moment the conference is planned to be a fully on-site event.

The conference will be held under the Honorary Patronage of the Mayor of Poznan - Mr Jacek Jaśkowiak.
