Call for papers
We remind all contributors that the final paper will only
be included in the Proceedings if we have received the paper and
the submitter has registered and paid for congress participation
by March 30, 2008. We have
an extremely tight publication schedule to ensure the volume will
be ready for distribution in July and consequently the March 30th
deadline is firm and no exceptions will be made.
Guidelines for contributors
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
- Other topics.
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 1-9, 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.
All contributed papers will be followed by a 10-minute discussion
- Full papers should be timed for 30 minutes;
- Short papers and project notes will be allowed 20 minutes.
- 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.
