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

·         Dictionary content in new media (tablets, mobile devices, etc.)

·         Usage practices of the users of electronic dictionaries

·         New approaches to dictionary writing (e.g. dictionaries created by users themselves, automatic extraction of dictionary information from the corpus)

·         Dictionary writing systems and other software available to the lexicographer

·         Integration of NLP tools (grammatical annotation, speech synthesis, etc.)

·         Automated customisation of dictionaries to users' needs and characteristics (proficiency level, mother tongue, etc.)

·         New reference tools with a dictionary element (e.g. learning tools, writing assistants)

·         Exploitation of language resources: monolingual and multilingual corpora, learner corpora, lexical databases (e.g. Wordnet, Framenet, DANTE)

·         Integration of electronic dictionaries into language learning and teaching (CALL, translator training, etc.)

Looking forward to seeing you in Tallinn.

Madis Jürviste (in the name of the eLex 2013 organizing committee)
