   Third International Workshop on DICTIONARY WRITING SYSTEMS (DWS 2004)
                Brno, Czech Republic, 6-7 September 2004


The workshop is organised by the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University,
Brno, as a pre-conference workshop of TSD 2004 (Text, Speech and Dialogue -
http://nlp.fi.muni.cz/tsd2004). The workshop is supported by EURALEX
(the European Association for Lexicography).

A dictionary writing system (DWS) is a piece of software for writing and
producing a dictionary. It might include an editor, a database, a web
interface and various management tools (for allocating work etc.) It operates
with a dictionary grammar, which specifies the structure of the dictionary.

The workshop follows similar successful events in Brighton, UK in 2002
and 2003. It will include hands-on experience of a leading DWS, presentation
of research papers and demos. The deadline for abstracts of proposed research
presentations and demos is July, 31.

   * dictionary project managers
