    Charo,
    I suggest a useful source of info on "historical development" of Corpus
    Linguistics is back issues of the ICAME Journal published by ICAME, see
    http://www.hd.uib.no/icame.html for online back issues back to vol18 (1994)
    - some earlier hardcopy back issues 9-24 are avaialable, see
    http://www.hd.uib.no/journal.html

    I have begun a project to scan and capture online some earlier back
    issues, but rely on student helpers for scanning so havent got very far!

    ICAME also runs an annual conference, and Proceedings are ususally
    published by Rodopi http://www.rodopi.nl in their "Language and
    Computers" Series, see http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?SerieId=LC

    ICAME Proceedings volumes published by Rodopi:

    CORPUS LINGUISTICS. AARTS, Jan and Willem MEIJS (Eds.) 1984

    CORPUS LINGUISTICS II. AARTS, Jan and Willem MEIJS (Eds.) 1986

    CORPUS LINGUISTICS AND BEYOND. MEIJS, Willem (Ed.) 1987

    Matti RISSANAN. (Eds.) 1988

    Ian LANCASHIRE (Eds.) 1996

    Explorations in Corpus Linguistics., RENOUF, Antoinette (Ed.) 1998

    CORPORA GALORE., KIRK, John M. (Ed.) 2000

    Some early ICAME corpus linguistics conferences were smaller,
    and only record is a conference report in ICAME Journal:

    Johansson, Stig, and Eric Atwell. Seminar on the Use of Computers in
    English Language Research. ICAME Journal 7:1-12, 1983

    Sue Blackwell. A Survey of Computer-Based English Language Research.
    ICAME Journal 9:3-28, 1985.

    A couple of ICAME conference organisers chose to publish Proceedings
    with Mouton de Gruyter rather than Rodopi:

    ENGLISH COMPUTER CORPORA: SELECTED PAPERS AND A RESEARCH GUIDE.,
    Johansson, Stig, and Anna-Brita Stenstrom (Eds) 1991

    NEW DIRECTIONS IN ENGLISH COMPUTER CORPORA: METHODOLOGY, RESULTS AND
    SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENTS., Gerhard Leitner (Ed).

    I hope this helps,

    Eric Atwell
