Meeting Description:

The XX EURALEX International Congress will be held between 12-16 July 2022 in Mannheim, Germany. With its motto “Dictionaries and Society” the conference aims at bringing together professional lexicographers, linguists, publishers, researchers, software developers and anyone interested in dictionaries and their educational, cultural, political and social impact in everyday life.

The programme includes a diverse spectrum of plenary lectures, topic-related sessions, software demonstrations, pre-conference workshops, presentations of new projects and young lexicographic professionals. As such, the EURALEX 2022 will offer a unique platform for discussions or exchange and it is a perfect opportunity to meet like-minded colleagues around the world.

The Congress is organised by the Department of Lexical Studies (“Lexik”) at the Leibniz Institute for the German Language (IDS), which was founded in 1964. The members of staff of the “Department of Lexical Studies” conduct research on questions of e-lexicographic practice and on meta-lexicographic studies. Other research topics include lexicological research on lexical change, lexical language contact, quantitative lexicology, syntagmatic aspects of the lexicon, and social aspects of the vocabulary.

Call for Papers:

Papers, posters, presentations of new projects and software demonstrations are invited on the topic ''Lexicography and Society'' as well as all lexicographically relevant topics including, but not limited to, the following fields:

1. The Dictionary-Making Process
2. Research on Dictionary Use
3. Lexicography and Language Technologies
4. Lexicography and Corpus Linguistics
5. Bi- and Multilingual Lexicography
6. Lexicography for Specialised Languages, Terminology and Terminography

8. Phraseology and Collocation
9. Lexicography and Etymology
10. Lexicological Issues of Lexicographical Relevance
11. Reports on Lexicographical and Lexicological Projects

The main topics are not meant to exclude any other lexicographic topic. Papers, posters, new projects and demonstrations that are relevant to the congress, but do not fit into any of the above-mentioned categories 1-11, will be reviewed nonetheless and considered for presentation.
