Meeting Description:

The 2020 Conference of the International Society for Historical Lexicography and Lexicology will be held at the University of La Rioja on June 17-19, 2020.
ISHLL is a society of scholars working on the history of the dictionary, the making of historical dictionaries, and historical lexicology. ISHLL was established as a result of the first International Conference on Historical Lexicography and Lexicology, which took place in Leicester in 2002. Subsequent conferences have been held at Gargnano del Garda, Italy (2004), Leiden, The Netherlands (2006), Edmonton, Canada (2008), Oxford, UK (2010), Jena, Germany (2012), Gran Canaria, Spain (2014), Bloomington Indiana, USA (2016), Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy (2018), and Leeuwarden-Ljouwert, The Netherlands (2019).

Call for Papers:

We welcome proposals for both oral presentations and posters on the conference topic ''Historical Lexicography and Lexicology in the Digital Era: Electronic Lexicography, Databases and the Semantic Web''; as well as any topic of historical lexicography, historical lexicology, etymology, historical lexica, historical thesauri, and historical lexical databases. All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.

Oral presentations will be twenty minutes long, followed by a ten-minute discussion.

Posters will be presented in a plenary session previous to poster sessions. Each poster author will be assigned a two-minute slot (with one ppt slide) to offer an overview and to invite delegates to visit their poster. The recommended poster size is 48'' x 60'', but 36'' x 48'' posters may also be displayed.

Abstracts (250-300 words, excluding bibliography) should be submitted electronically through easychair (, both for oral presentations and poster presentations.
