First call for papers
eLexicography in the 21st century: New challenges, new applications

Organized by the Centre for English Corpus Linguistics (CECL) under the aegis of the European Association for Lexicography (EURALEX).

Venue: Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

Dates: 22-24 October, 2009

Organizers: Prof. Sylviane Granger and Dr Magali Paquot


The conference aims to explore innovative developments in the field of electronic lexicography. Papers on the following topics are particularly welcome:

    * New technological environments (web-based dictionaries, mobile devices, etc.)
    * Exploitation of language resources: monolingual and multilingual corpora, learner corpora, lexical databases (e.g. WordNet)
    * Integration of NLP tools (grammatical annotation, speech synthesis, etc.)
    * Dictionary writing systems and other software available to the lexicographer
    * Changes to the dictionary macro- and microstructure afforded by the electronic medium (multiple access routes, efficient integration of phraseology, etc.)
    * Automated customisation of dictionaries in function of users�?? needs (proficiency level, receptive vs. productive mode, register)
    * Integration of electronic dictionaries into language learning and teaching (CALL, translator training, etc.)

The conference aims to be a showcase for the latest developments in the field and will feature both software demos and a book exhibition.

There will be three different categories of presentation:

- Full paper (20 minutes + 10 minutes for discussion)
- Software demonstration (20 minutes + 10 minutes for discussion)
- Poster

The posters are intended to present research still at a preliminary stage and on which researchers would like to get feedback.

Abstracts of 500-1,000 words (+ list of references) accompanied by a brief bio note (75 words) should be sent to elexicography@uclouvain.be by 15 December 2008.

Please follow the abstract submission guidelines described here

A selection of papers will be invited for expansion into chapters for a book arising from the conference.
