Call for papers

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

  • Linked lexical data and its presentation
  • Automation of lexicographical processes
  • Exploitation of language resources: monolingual and multilingual corpora, learner corpora, lexical databases (e.g. Wordnet, Framenet, DANTE, encyclopedia, Wikipedia)
  • Crowdsourcing and its use in lexicography
  • New reference tools with a dictionary element (e.g. learning tools, writing assistants)
  • Dictionary writing systems and other software available to the lexicographer
  • Integration of NLP tools (grammatical annotation, speech synthesis, etc.)
  • Dictionary content in new media (tablets, mobile devices, etc.)
  • Usage practices of the users of electronic dictionaries
  • Automated customisation of dictionaries to users’ needs and characteristics (proficiency level, mother tongue, etc.)
  • Integration of electronic dictionaries into language learning and teaching (CALL, translator training, etc.)


The abstracts, to be submitted by 22 January 2015, should be between 300-500 words in length (excluding references), and should describe the contents of the proposed presentation and/or paper. The abstract should also give an indication of whether the presented researched or project is already completed or is still in progress, or whether the presentation will be a demo. In order to give a presentation at the conference, you must have your abstract accepted.

The abstracts should be submitted via EasyChair:

There will be four categories of presentation:

  • Full paper (25 minutes, including discussion)
  • Software presentation (25 minutes, including discussion)
  • Short paper (15 minutes, including discussion)

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