The XX International EURALEX Congress will take place in Mannheim (Germany) from July 12-16, 2022. Under the topic “Dictionaries and Society”, the conference will bring together experts from different subject areas such as lexicography, linguistics, publishing, research or software developments and invite interested parties who are passionate about the educational, cultural, political and social significance of dictionaries in everyday life.

The program includes varied plenary lectures, thematic sections, software demonstrations, workshops before the congress starts and presentations of new projects and young researchers' work. The XX EURALEX Congress is an ideal forum for discussion and exchange, and also offers the opportunity to meet like-minded colleagues from around the world.

The staff of the Lexicology Department conducts research on issues of Internet lexicographic practice and metalexicographic studies. Other research topics include lexicological research on lexical change, lexical language contact, quantitative lexicology, syntagmatic aspects of the lexicon, and social aspects of vocabulary.
