In February 2010, Professor Juri Apresjan, the outstanding Russian linguist,

anniversary, the Kharkevich Institute for Information Transmission Problems and
the Vinogradov Institute of the Russian Language of the Russian Academy of
Sciences are organizing an international conference 'The Word and the Language'.

The conference will take place from February 2 to February 4, 2010 in Moscow or
in the suburbs of Moscow.

Call for Papers:

Although the main focus of attention will be on modern lexicography, linguists
working in all areas are invited to take part in the conference. The preliminary
list of topics includes:

-Theoretical and practical lexicography
-Creation of contemporary dictionaries of all types (active
dictionaries, dictionaries of synonyms, dictionaries of function words,
bilingual dictionaries etc), computerized lexicographic resources
-Lexical semantics, syntactic semantics, pragmatics
-Constructions of operational models of language
-Lexical functions and their applications
-Corpus linguistics
-Linguistic typology
-Machine translation and other NLP systems

The organizing committee asked several leading Russian and foreign scholars to
give invited talks and is now awaiting their answer. We expect that Professor
Juri Apresjan will give a talk, too.

The working languages of the conference will be Russian and English. Papers may
be submitted in either of these two languages. Paper submission and reviewing
will be organized using a web interface, to be accessed from the webpage of
''The Word and the Language'' conference: http://aprconf.iitp.ru. Submissions
(in pdf or Word format, up to 10 pages) can be made from August 1 to November 1,
2009. The results of peer reviewing will be made available on November 20, 2009.
There will be no registration fee for the presenters of papers or attendees.
Sessions may be attended by all comers.

We are not planning to publish the proceedings of the conference in book form;
however, the Program Committee will recommend the best papers for publications
in leading Russian linguistic journals, Russkij jazyk vnau?nom osve??enii i
Voprosy jazykoznanija. The texts of accepted papers will be published on the
website prior to the conference should the presenters wish this.
