The programme and book of abstracts are now available!


The call for papers for the eLexicography 2009 conference has been a great success. We have received a large number of abstracts covering a wide spectrum of research in the field of eLexicography and are confident that the conference will be a lively and fruitful event.

There will be 4 types of presentation:

  • Full papers: 25 minutes (including discussion).
  • Short papers: a new category we have added to the programme in order to be able to accommodate a larger number of papers: 15 minutes (including discussion).
  • Posters: There will be no formal oral presentation associated with posters but the programme will include a 1-hour slot during which presenters will be available by their posters for informal discussion with conference participants.
  • Software demonstrations: 25 minutes (including discussion).

The conference will start at 9.00 a.m on Thursday 22 October (registration will start at 8.30 a.m.) and end at 1 p.m on Saturday 24 October. It will be possible to have lunch (not included in the conference registration fee) at the conference venue before leaving.
