International Computer Archive of Modern and Medieval English

ICAME is an international organization of linguists and information scientists working with English machine-readable texts. The aim of the organization is to collect and distribute information on English language material available for computer processing and on linguistic research completed or in progress on the material, to compile an archive of English text corpora in machine-readable form, and to make material available to research institutions.

The archive mentioned in the name resides at the Norwegian Computing Centre for the Humanities (NCCH) in Bergen, Norway. This acts as a distribution centre for computerized English-language corpora and corpus-related software. ICAME publishes the ICAME Journal which appears at least once a year, with articles and information about English computer corpora. There is also an electronic information service. Conferences, usually in May/June each year, have been arranged since 1979.
