A Workshop in Lexicography and Lexical Computing

Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona

July 10th -15th 2008


Led by Sue Atkins, Adam Kilgarriff and Michael Rundell of the Lexicography MasterClass, Lexicom is an intensive one-week workshop, with seminars on theoretical issues alternating with practical sessions at the computer. There will be some parallel 'lexicographic' and 'computational' sessions. Topics to be covered include:

* corpus creation * corpus analysis:

o software and corpus querying

o discovering word senses, recording contextual information * Frame Semantics and its application to lexicography * writing entries for dictionaries and lexicons * dictionary databases and writing systems * using web data

Applications are invited from people with interests and experience in any of these areas.

Over the last eight years Lexicom workshops (in Europe and in Asia) have attracted over 200 participants from 35 countries, including lexicographers, computational linguists, professors, research students, translators, terminologists, and editors, managers and technical support staff from dictionary publishers and information-management companies.

The workshop will be held just off La Rambla -- the most famous street in one of Europe's most exciting cities. It immediately precedes the XIII Euralex Congress: http://www.iula.upf.edu/agenda/euralex_08/.
