Adam Kilgarriff:  we announce, with great sadness, that our friend and colleague Adam Kilgarriff died on 16th May 2015 from an aggressive cancer – an illness which he faced with great dignity, courage, and good humour. His death is a huge loss to the lexicographic and linguistic community, to his many friends, and above all to his family. We will all miss him terribly.

Our 2015 Lexicom Workshop was held in Telč in Czech Republic, from 8th to 12th June 2015.
