2nd International Workshop on Generative Approaches to the Lexicon

Organizers: 
Pierrette Bouillon (ISSCO/TIM, University of Geneva, Switzerland) 
Kyoko Kanzaki (Communications Research Laboratory, Japan)

Date:
May 15-17 2003

Location: 
University of Geneva, 
Geneva, Switzerland

Topic: 

The aim of the GL workshop is to bring together diverse contributions
in philosophy, linguistics, computer science and lexicography to
explore the lexicon from the point of view of generativity, in
particular :

- Philosophical Foundations of a Generative Approach
- Representation of Word Meaning
- Generative Lexicon Theory
- Analysis of Linguistic Phenomena
- Lexical Rules
- Framework for Lexical Semantics
- Critical Perspectives
- Building Lexical Resources
- Exploiting Lexical Resources in NLP Applications

In this second workshop we would like to keep all the above perspectives,
but put more of the focus on available on-line lexical resources in
order to compare experience. The discussions will be centered, but not
limited to, the following topics:

- Building new resources
- Acquiring lexical information
- Maintaining resources
- Representing lexical information (i.e. polysemy, collocation links, 
 multiword expressions, predicate-argument structure)
- Using lexical information in applications
- Specialization and customization for specific applications
- Links between different frameworks
- Sharing lexical resources
- Multilinguality in the lexicon
- Standardization and evaluation

Papers on on-line ressources can make reference to any semantic
lexicons (Wordnet, Framenet, Meaning-text theory, etc.), but a link to
Generative Lexicon theory is desirable (Pustejovsky 1995). Key topics
are:

- How to build a Generative Lexicon? 
- How a Generative Lexicon can be extracted from existing ressources or corpora?
- How to connect qualia structures with other lexical information?
- How lexical information is represented in different frameworks?
- Philosophical differences between frameworks
- Critical perspectives

The conference will be held over a period of two and a half days. Long
(45 min) and short (20 min) presentations are foreseen. Invited
speakers include Nicoletta Calzolari (Istituto Di Linguistica
Computazionale, Pisa), Christiane Fellbaum (NEC, Princeton Univ),
Charles J. Fillmore (International Computer Science Institute,
Berkeley) and James Pustejovsky (Brandeis University, Brandeis).

Submission procedure: Authors should submit an anonymous paper of at
most 7 single-column pages (including references) using a 12' body
font size together with a separate page specifying the author's name,
affiliation, address, e-mail address, title and type of paper (long
or short). The papers should be submitted electronically (in
postscript, rtf or pdf format) to both:
