The 2001 Asian Association for Lexicography (ASIALEX)
Biennial Conference
August 8-10, 2001

CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT
AND
CALL FOR PAPERS, Second Circular

First organized at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 1997 
during an international conference on dictionaries and lexicography, 
ASIALEX had its first biennial conference at Guangdong University of 
Foreign Studies, Guangzhou, in 1999, with some two hundred scholars 
attending from a dozen countries of Asia and Europe.
The second ASIALEX conference will be hosted by the Center for Linguistic 
Informatics Research (formerly, Lexicographical Center) of Yonsei 
University from August 8 to 10, 2001. Prof. Sangsup Lee, current President 
of the Association, is Director of the Center.
The general theme of the ASIALEX 2001 Conference is "Asian Bilingualism and 
the Dictionary." The organizing committee believe that bilingualism and the 
dictionary have special aspects in the Asian context, a subject that has 
not received sufficient consideration so far and whose significance is 
growing very fast in this age of accelerated cross-cultural, informatic 
contact between the peoples of Asia and the rest of the world.
However, we welcome practically all topics related to the dictionary. 
Following is a list of topics we consider to be relevant. Since this is not 
exhaustive, other topics may be added.

 1. Corpus Linguistics, Lexicology, Lexicography
 2. Computational Lexicography
 3. Lexicographical Processes and Methods
 4. Language Education and Dictionary
 5. Terminography
 6. Lexicographical Problems in Asian Bilingualism

Renowned scholars and lexicographers, including Patrick Hanks and Murata 
Minoru, will speak at plenary sessions. Languages to be used will be Korean 
and English.

Grant For Asian Scholars
 =========================
The Organizing Committee have decided to offer a Grant to invite 
outstanding Asian scholars of lexicography who might not otherwise be able 
and willing to attend the conference. Although our budget is very limited, 
we hope to invite as many excellent colleagues, from as wide a range of 
Asian regions and countries as we can. The grant includes both airfare and 
accommodations. Grantholders will receive payment for a round-way ticket 
from the main international airport of the Asian country where the holder 
resides, to Seoul; the ticket must be an economy class discount via the 
shortest route. They also will be provided with free accommodation 
(breakfast inclusive) at one of our guesthouses on campus and decent amount 
of per diem.

Applicants are asked to present their papers at one of the sessions during 
the conference. So we hope them to read carefully and act up to the 
procedures for participating in the Conference as stated in the attached 
documents and the general information about the Aisalex 2001 on its 
website, http://asialex.yonsei.ac.kr .

 TOPICS OF INTEREST

Topics of interest for the workshop will be computational aspects of
formal semantic theories as well as theoretical issues in building
natural language understanding systems, including systens where
language is used in a multimedia setting. Papers are invited in areas
which include, but are not limited to, the following specific topics:

 * working with underspecified representations of meaning
 * modelling and using context for interpretation
 * the relations between semantics and pragmatics
 * dynamic interpretation in text and dialogue
 * interpretation and games
 * computational lexical semantics
 * interpretation and inference
 * meaning in multimedia objects
 * interpretation and optimality
 * speech acts and interpretation
 * incrementality and monotonicity in interpretation
 * knowledge representation and reasoning in meaning computation


 SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Authors are asked to submit an original paper of maximally 5000 words
