Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Lexicography

Call Deadline: 23-Feb-2011

Meeting Description:

Lexical resources are one of the main sources of linguistic information for research and applications in Natural Language Processing and related fields. In recent years advances have been achieved in both symbolic aspects of lexical resource development (lexical formalisms, rule-based tools) and statistical techniques for the acquisition and enrichment of lexical resources, both monolingual and multilingual. The latter have allowed for faster development of large-scale morphological, syntactic and/or semantic resources, for widely-used as well as resource-scarce languages. Moreover, the notion of dynamic lexicon is used increasingly for taking into account the fact that the lexicon undergoes a permanent evolution.

This workshop aims at sketching a large picture of the state of the art in the domain of lexical resource modeling and development. It is also dedicated to research on the application of lexical resources for improving corpus-based studies and language processing tools, both in NLP and other language-related fields, such as linguistics, translation studies and didactics.

2nd Call for Papers:

Extended Deadline: February 23, 2011

A non-exclusive list of topics covered by this workshop is:

- Lexical resources involving information from one or more description levels, such as morphology, syntax (e.g. valency), semantics (e.g. wordnets), named entity databases and terminologies
- Models, frameworks and architectures for representing lexical information
- Comparing, merging and coupling lexical resources
- (offline) Acquisition of lexical information, e.g. from raw, tagged or parsed corpora
- Dynamic lexicons, processing of unknown words, neologisms
- Lexicons of multi-word units, idioms, derived lexemes and other complex lexical units
- Multilingual lexicons
- Issues specific to developing lexical resources for less-resourced languages
- Issues specific to developing lexical resources for issues specific to developing lexical resources for typologically or genetically (un)related languages
- Lexical resources for improving language-related research and applications in areas such as NLP (parsing, text generation, automatic translation, information extraction…), linguistic research, translation studies, language teaching
- Evaluation methods for lexical resources
- Issues on standardization and distribution of lexical resources

Submission Details:

Authors are invited to submit full papers describing original and unpublished work. Submissions should be anonymous, and have 4 to 8 pages using the LREC style sheets available at http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2010/?Author-s-Kit-and-Templates

Submissions (in PDF format) should be sent by e-mail at the following address: woler11_submissioninria.fr

Each submission will be anonymously reviewed by three members of the program committee, and possibly by additional reviewers. The accepted papers will appear in the workshop electronic proceedings. A post-workshop publication, e.g., in the form of an Springer LNCS/LNAI series volume, will be considered.

Workshop Format:

The workshop is part of ESSLLI and is open to all ESSLLI participants. It will consist of five 90-minute sessions held over five consecutive days in the first week of ESSLLI, i.e., from August 1 to August 5, 2011. There will be 3 slots for paper presentation and discussion per session. As usual for ESSLLI workshop, the workshop organizer will give an introduction to the topic during the first session. Invited talks are to be announced soon.

Further information about the workshop will be on the Workshop web page, at the following URL: http://alpage.inria.fr/~sagot/woler2011/

Important Dates:

Extended submission deadline: February 23, 2011
Notification: April 15, 2011
Final papers for proceedings: May 9, 2011
Workshop dates: August 1-5, 2011

Practical Information:

All workshop participants including the presenters will be required to register for ESSLLI. The registration fee for authors presenting a paper will correspond to the early student/workshop speaker registration fee. Moreover, additional fee waiver grants might be made available by the ESSLLI Organizing Committee on a competitive basis and workshop participants are eligible to apply for those. There will be no reimbursement for travel costs and accommodation. Workshop speakers who have difficulty in finding funding should contact the local organizing committee to ask for the possibilities for a grant.
