The ASIALEX Second Biennial Conference,
The Asian Association for Lexicography (ASIALEX) was inaugurated during the Dictionaries in Asia conference at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 1997. Its first conference was hosted at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, Guangzhou, in 1999, by the first Asialex president and president of the university, Professor Huang Jianhua, and was attended by two hundred scholars from Asia and Europe. The current president of ASIALEX, Professor Sangsup Lee, chairs the organizing committee of the second biennial conference, due on 8-10 August 2001, at the Center for Linguistic Informatics Research, which he directs, at Yonsei University.
The general theme of the conference
is 'Asian Bilingualism and the Dictionary'. This subject has
special aspects in the Asian context which have 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.
Other topics related to the dictionary are also welcome. Following
is a list of major topics proposed by the organizing committee:
