The information at this location will be kept up to date.



The EURALEX Congresses bring together professional
lexicographers, publishers, researchers, scholars, and all
others interested in dictionaries of all types.
The programme will include plenary lectures,
parallel sessions on the topics listed below,
software demonstrations, a presidential debate,
pre-congress tutorials and specialized workshops,
a book and software exhibition, and social events for
participants and their guests.



Topics

Papers, posters, and demonstrations are invited on all
topics of lexicography, including, but not limited to, the
following fields which are the main focus of the congress:

 1.Computational lexicography and lexicology
 (N.B.: This is different from, e.g. COLING or ACL,
 in the sense that EURALEX invites papers on
 lexicographically relevant computational work, rather
 than any or all computational linguistic topics
 relating to the lexicon.)
 2.Lexical Combinatorics
 3.Historical and Scholarly Lexicography
 4.Bilingual Lexicography
 5.The Dictionary-Making Process
 6.Lexicography for Specialized Languages -
 Terminology and Terminography
 7.Reports on Lexicographical and Lexicological Projects
 8.Other topics

The ninth congress will differ slightly from previous
EURALEX congresses in that we particularly welcome papers
on certain sub-topics of the above,
to fit in with special sessions:



 Topic (1-A): Corpus lexicographic tools in industry
 and research
 (needs, functions, architectures ...)
 Topic (1-B): Creating (sizeable) dictionaries for
 Natural Language
 Processing (procedures,
 information types, use of published
 dictionaries, projects ...)
 Topic (3-A): The creation of historical dictionaries
 (theoretical and practical problems,
 workflows, ongoing projects ...)
 Topic (4-A): User aspects of bilingual dictionaries
 (market studies, user behaviour,
 concepts and information programs for new
 bilingual dictionaries,
 bilingual learners' dictionaries)
 Topic (5-A): Teaching dictionary making and
 lexicography (course material,
 topics/theories and working methodology
 taught, experience from recent courses
 in industry and academia...)
 Topic (7-A): Internet Lexicography
 (concepts and design of dictionaries for
 the internet, quality control for
 lexicographical products on the internet, advantages
and
 limitations of the new medium with
 respect to `traditional dictionaries')

The main topic indications are not meant to exclude any
lexicographic topic: papers relevant to the congress but not
fitting any of the categories 1-7 will be reviewed
nonetheless and considered for presentation.

Individual presentations should be timed for 30 minutes,
followed by a 10 minute discussion period. There are no
restrictions on the language of the presentation, but
unfortunately it is not possible to offer interpretation.

Software Demonstrations: We are particularly interested in
well-prepared software demonstrations, presentations of
electronic dictionaries, corpora, tools, etc.
Those demonstrations accepted will be presented in a
20 minute time slot at the congress (possibly twice).
Technical facilities will be available.



Submissions

Submissions may be of one of the following two types:
Contributed Papers and Software Demonstrations.

All submissions (of both types) will be reviewed by two or
three members of the referees' panel; the programme will be
selected by the programme committee. Submissions proposing
software demonstrations should include a description of the
functions, underlying approach and implementation of the
software, possibly an indication of a URL, and
hardware/software requirements.

Authors should send five hardcopies of a preliminary version
of their contribution to the congress organizers before
November 9th, 1999. Fax and e-mail submission may be used
in addition, but the hardcopy submission in five copies is
mandatory.



Format:
Contributed Papers: 6 to 8 pages, double-spaced;
Software Demonstrations: 4 pages, double-spaced;
Front page:

 Title of the paper or software demonstration;
 Name(s), affiliation(s) and address(es) of the
 author(s);
 Abstract (10-15 lines);
 in the top right corner: indication of the topic
 category (use 1,
 1-A, 1-B, etc.; if your paper does not fit in with
 any of the main
 categories, please use category 8);

Authors whose submissions are accepted will receive a style
guide for the preparation of the (electronic) final version
of the paper, to be published in the Proceedings immediately
before the congress. Contributed Papers will be allowed
c. 10 pages: papers relating to Software Demonstrations
