The 2001 Asian Association for Lexicography (ASIALEX)
Biennial Conference
August 8-10, 2001
Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea

CALL FOR PAPERS, Second Circular

First organized at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 1997
during an international conference on dictionaries and lexicography,
ASIALEX had its first biennial conference at Guangdong University of
Foreign Studies, Guangzhou, in 1999, with some two hundred scholars
attending from a dozen countries of Asia and Europe.
The second ASIALEX conference will be hosted by the Center for Linguistic
Informatics Research (formerly, Lexicographical Center) of Yonsei
University from August 8 to 10, 2001. Prof. Sangsup Lee, current President
of the Association, is Director of the Center.
The general theme of the ASIALEX 2001 Conference is "Asian Bilingualism
and the Dictionary." The organizing committee believe that bilingualism
and the dictionary have special aspects in the Asian context, a subject
that has not received sufficient consideration so far and whose
significance is growing very fast in this age of accelerated
cross-cultural, informatic contact between the peoples of Asia and the
rest of the world.
However, we welcome practically all topics related to the dictionary.
Following is a list of topics we consider to be relevant. Since this is
not exhaustive, other topics may be added.

   1. Corpus Linguistics, Lexicology, Lexicography
   2. Computational Lexicography
   3. Lexicographical Processes and Methods
   4. Language Education and Dictionary
   5. Terminography
   6. Lexicographical Problems in Asian Bilingualism

Renowned scholars and lexicographers, including Patrick Hanks and Murata
Minoru, will speak at plenary sessions. Languages to be used will be
Korean and English.

The submitted abstract should include:

   - title
   - author(s) name(s)

Grant For Asian Scholars
The Organizing Committee have decided to offer a Grant to invite
outstanding Asian scholars of lexicography who might not otherwise be able
and willing to attend the conference. Although our budget is very limited,
we hope to invite as many excellent colleagues, from as wide a range of
Asian regions and countries as we can. The grant includes both airfare and
accommodations. Grantholders will receive payment for a round-way ticket
from the main international airport of the Asian country where the holder
resides, to Seoul; the ticket must be an economy class discount via the
shortest route. They also will be provided with free accommodation
(breakfast inclusive) at one of our guesthouses on campus and decent
amount of per diem.
Applicants are asked to present their papers at one of the sessions during
the conference. So we hope them to read carefully and act up to the
procedures for participating in the Conference as stated in the attached
documents and the general information about the Aisalex 2001 on its
