|Meeting Description:||The third biannual conference on electronic lexicography, eLex 2013, will take place in Tallinn, Estonia.
The previous two eLex conferences have included presentations on many innovative approaches to presenting lexicographic information, however there were, perhaps unavoidably, still discussions on the differences between paper and electronic dictionaries, as well as comparisons of their advantages and disadvantages. Such discussions merely take away the focus from the actual task at hand - to find different ways on how to exploit the rich potential of electronic medium in order to respond (quickly) to the needs of the new types of users, as well as to the needs of modern lexicographers, to forget about conventional approaches and be innovative, to conceptualize the dictionary with an electronic format in mind; in other words, ‘to think outside the paper’.
