Meeting Description:

European Association for Lexicography Congress

The EURALEX Congresses bring together professional lexicographers, publishers,
researchers, software developers, and others interested in dictionaries of all
types. The next Euralex Congress will be held in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands
from 6 - 10 July 2010.

Call for Papers

The programme will include plenary lectures, parallel sessions on the topics
listed below, software demonstrations, pre-congress tutorials and specialized
workshops, a special session for students and work-in-progress, a book and
software exhibition, and social events for participants and their guests.

The 2010 conference will be hosted by the Fryske Akademy (Frisian Academy) in
Leeuwarden <http://www.fryske-akademy.nl>, the capital of the Dutch bilingual
Province of Friesland. The Fryske Akademy does research on Frisian and
Friesland. Over the years the Fryske Akademy has published a wide range of
Frisian dictionaries. The Mercator Research Centre at the Fryske Akademy studies
the position of lesser-used languages in education, gives information on
national and regional education systems and provides the latest statistics
regarding lesser-used languages in education in the European Union. Frisian
being a small non-state language, the organising committee especially welcomes
papers on any aspect of the lexicography of non-state and lesser used languages.

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

Computational Lexicography and Lexicology
The Dictionary-Making Process
Reports on Lexicographical and Lexicological Projects
Bilingual Lexicography
Lexicography for Specialised Languages - Terminology and Terminography
Historical and Scholarly Lexicography and Etymology
Dictionary Use
Phraseology and Collocation
Lexicological Issues of Lexicographical Relevance
Lexicography of non-state and lesser used languages

The main topics are not meant to exclude any lexicographic topic. Papers,
posters and demonstrations that are relevant to the congress, but which do not
fit into any of the categories above, will be reviewed nonetheless and
considered for presentation.

Submissions may be one of the following types: Contributed full papers,
Contributed short papers & project notes, Software demonstrations, Posters,
Student papers.

All submissions will be evaluated anonymously by at least two reviewers. The
Scientific Committee will be aided in this task by a panel of external referees.
The programme will be selected by the programme committee.

Contributed Papers
There are two types of contributed papers.
Full papers should be timed for 30 minutes
Short papers and project notes will be allowed 20 minutes

All contributed papers will be followed by a 10-minute discussion period.

Software Demonstrations
We are particularly interested in well-prepared software demonstrations,
presentations of electronic dictionaries, corpora, tools, etc. These
demonstrations will be allowed a 30-minute time slot at the congress (they may
be presented more than once).

Submissions proposing software demonstrations should include a description of
the functions, underlying approach implementation of the software, possibly an
indication of a URL, and hardware/software requirements. Technical facilities
will be available, however, we would ask everyone submitting proposals to
indicate well in advance exactly what technical facilities they need.

A poster session is planned. Appropriate facilities will be provided on the
Congress site.

Student Papers
A special session for short presentations by students (15-minute slots) is planned.

E-mail submission is required. The submission process has two parts.
