Lexicom 2014: UK, 11th-15th August 2014

The next Lexicom Workshop will take place from 11th-15th August 2014, and for the first time since 2003, it will be held in the UK. The venue is the 15th-century Herstmonceux Castle which, despite its great age, has full conference facilities and wifi (and a moat)!

Full details and a registration form are here.

NEW: plans are in place for a Lexicom Workshop in Brazil in early 2015, the likely dates being 23rd to 27th February. Once we have all the details, we will post more information here.

The 2013 Lexicom Workshop was held in Kivik, in Sweden, from 10th to 14th June 2013.  We enjoyed a packed programme and glorious summer weather.

A report on our previous Lexicom Workshop (held in Austria in September 2012) has been posted here.
