Meeting Description: The 11th International Conference of the Asian Association for Lexicography (ASIALEX 2017) will be held at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies (GDUFS) in Guangzhou, China on June 10-12, 2017.

This conference will celebrate the 20th anniversary of ASIALEX. Being the host of the First International Conference of ASIALEX, we are very pleased to bring it back to this location for this landmark event after it has traveled around nine Asian countries and regions over the past twenty years.

To respond to the challenges of the corpus revolution and the digital revolution in lexicography, lexicographers, linguists, language professionals and publishers from across Asia and worldwide need to work together to share information, knowledge and experience, and to encourage innovation in lexicographic studies and practice. ASIALEX 2017 aims to provide such a platform.

Keynote Speakers:

- Professor Huang Jianhua (GDUFS, First President of ASIALEX)
- Professor Andrea Abel (EURAC, President-elect of EURALEX)
- Dr. Julia Miller (University of Adelaide, President of AUSTRALEX)
- Dr. Michael Rundell (Lexicography Masterclass and Macmillan Dictionaries)
Linguistic Subfield: Lexicography
