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 October 15th, 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 c. 5 pages, in a separate section.

Important Dates

 * 15 October 1999: Deadline for receipt of preliminary
 versions of papers by congress organizers
 * 15 February 2000: Dispatch of notifications of
 acceptance/rejection
 * 15 April 2000: Deadline for receipt of camera-ready
 papers for inclusion in the Proceedings

Programme Committee: Frantisek Cerm\225k (CZ),
Vincent Docherty (D), Thierry Fontenelle (L),
Ulrich Heid (D), and Rosamund Moon (GB). Reviewers will
include the above, the members of the EURALEX Executive
Board, and additional experts.

Pre-EURALEX tutorials: There will be two pre-EURALEX
tutorials. Details will be announced later.

Exhibitions: A book and software exhibition will be organized in the
coffee break area of the congress site. Walk-up-and-use software
demonstrations (without presentation, not included in the Proceedings)
may be given there.

Registration: The registration fee will probably be in the range of
240 - 310 Euros; an early subscription bonus, as well as a reduction
for EURALEX members, will be offered. A late fee will apply.

will be made, within walking distance from the congress venue or
within 15 minutes tram/bus ride. Student dormitory places or
equivalent low-budget accommodation will be provided as well. Details
