The Interactional Variation Online (IVO) Project is creating a researcher network with monthly get-togethers. This network will bring together postgraduates and researchers interested in sharing insights into applications of corpus linguistics, corpus compilation and methods, multimodal corpus analysis, institutional and professional discourse and virtual meetings. 

We aim for these sessions to be informal gatherings full of rich discussion with the sharing of ideas and resources leading to collaborative engagement and combined research.
