Lexicography is much more than simply compiling a dictionary. The field brings together computational linguists, translators, educators, software developers, technical companies, and publishers whose knowledge and experience enrich our understanding of the intricate relationship between dictionary and digitalization. This has had a profound impact on dictionary in a number of respects; for example, dictionary compilation process, integration of corpus query tools, interoperability with natural language processing application, methods of storing and transmitting information. In the 21st century, there is an urgent call to evaluate new sources, materials, skills, platforms and objectives, taking into account the past, present and future of lexicography. Innovation, research and tradition should, now more than ever, share the spotlight in lexicography studies and practice. Therefore, the 12th International Conference of the Asian Association for Lexicography aims to expand the horizons and encourage discussion and cooperation among the many specialists who take different approaches to this field of studies.


The theme of this conference is Lexicography in the Digital World. We welcome proposals related to the following topics:
