EURALEX XIX is going virtual (7-11 September 2021)
The Organizing Committee of the EURALEX XIX International Congress has decided to organize the Congress which was to be held in Alexandroupolis, Greece as a Virtual Congress on 7-11 September 2021. This inevitable decision has been made in the interest of the health and safety of all attendees, given the continuing spread of COVID-19, the restrictions on travel and large meetings, but also in order to avoid a new postponement. For more information, please see the congress website at https://euralex2020.gr/.
Tanneke Schoonheim (1965-2020)
Our dear colleague Tanneke Schoonheim, Secretary-Treasurer of EURALEX, passed away unexpectedly on 25 August 2020. Beautiful obituaries were written by Frieda Steurs, Director of the Dutch Language Institute, and Anne Dykstra, Organiser together with Tanneke of EURALEX 2010. Our thoughts go to all of Tanneke’s family, friends and colleagues.
