Meeting Description:

The Dictionary Society of North America is pleased to announce that its 23rd biennial conference will be held remotely on June 4, 2021, from 10:00 am – 3:30 pm North American Eastern Time (GMT 15:00 – 20:30). The abbreviated program of three panels with three papers each will focus on various aspects of lexicography in the 21st century. More information about the conference can be found in the call for papers and the program description below.

Call for Papers:

Abstracts are invited for paper presentations at the DSNA-23 meeting. Papers should be centrally relevant to one of the three panel topics described in the Conference Program and the the abstract should specify the number of the panel for which the paper is proposed. Presentations are limited to 15 minutes and must be pre-recorded. Each panel will include a 15-minute live Q&A following presentation of the three papers. Submission guidelines and a link for submissions can be found at https://easychair.org/cfp/dsna23.

The organizers encourage submission of public-facing papers, with appeal to a wider audience than ordinarily attends a DSNA conference. Fifteen-minute papers cannot attempt a state-of-the-art picture but should aim to describe or critique an aspect of the topic theme.

Abstracts will comprise three parts: the number of the panel for which the paper is proposed and the paper’s title; an abstract of 350-500 words (excluding references); any references. No self-identifying information should appear in the abstract. An example for the first line of the submission could read: “Panel 2. How the Toronto Star Promotes Canadian Neologisms: A Corpus-Based Analysis”. Papers need not be submitted at this time; the conference committee will contact authors regarding their paper.

Each trio of panel presentations is planned to form the core of a forum to be published in Dictionaries: Journal of the Dictionary Society of North America. In addition, select abstracts for which there is no space within the allotted panel time will be invited for possible inclusion in the published forum; papers submitted to the journal will be refereed in accordance with journal practices.

All presenters must register for the conference.
