We are pleased to announce two conferences, to be held conjointly at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, June 5-7, 2015:

The 20th biennial Meeting of the Dictionary Society of North America (DSNA-20)
The 9th International Conference on Studies in the History of the English Language (SHEL-9)

The joint conference theme of DSNA-20 & SHEL-9 is 'Multilingual Approaches'. Scholars are encouraged, wherever possible, to foreground any bi- or multilingual aspects in their work in as far as present. In keeping with the traditions of both conference series, the theme is a recommendation: all topics, regardless of the conference theme, are most welcome and will be given equal weight in the adjudication process.

Following successful SHEL conferences in Provo, UT (2013), Bloomington, IN (2012) and Banff, AB (2009) and successful DSNA meetings in Athens, GA (2013), Montreal, QC (2011) and Bloomington, IN (2009), this first joint meeting of the two associations is intended to provide opportunities for synergies between the fields.

Meetings are scheduled on 5 June (all day), 6 June (all day) and 7 June (half day), with a pre-conference excursion on 4 June (half day).
