are welcome to participate:
-Corpus design and methodology.
-Application of corpora: implications for language teaching, discourse
analysis, translation, register and genre analysis, lexicography and
diachronic research.

While corpus linguistics is generally understood as studies on
computerized corpora, research papers based on more traditional corpus
analysis will also be welcome.

Participants are invited to submit abstracts for 20 minute papers.
Proposals for round tables are also welcome. These abstracts should
not exceed 150 words (300 for round tables) and should be sent to any

GermaNet-Workshop: Anwendungen des deutschen Wortnetzes
in Theorie und Praxis

Lexikalisch-semantische Wortnetze im Stile des Princeton 
WordNet sind in den letzten Jahren zu populaeren Ressourcen 
in der Computerlinguistik und Sprachverarbeitung geworden.

Der Workshop soll Anwendern und Entwicklern des deutschen
Wortnetzes GermaNet Gelegenheit geben, 
sowohl Ergebnisse und Erfahrungen auszutauschen 
als auch Desiderata und Perspektiven in Zusammenhang mit
GermaNet bzw. Wortnetzen zu thematisieren.
Mittlerweile wird das deutsche Wortnetz 
in zahlreichen Anwendungen des NLP und des Semantic 
Web eingesetzt. 
Das Feedback der verschiedenen Nutzer ist nicht zuletzt
fuer uns als Ressourcen-Entwickler essentiell.

Der Workshop richtet sich vor allem an ForscherInnen und 
AnwenderInnen aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum, um die Kosten fuer 
TeilnehmerInnen gering zu halten. 
(Ein internationales Forum bietet die Global WordNet Conference 
im Januar 2004 in Brno: http://www.fi.muni.cz/gwc2004/)
Durch die Einbettung in den GLDV-AK Lexikographie 
ist es moeglich, auf die Erhebung einer Tagungsgebuehr zu verzichten.
Die Teilnehmerzahl ist auf **35** beschraenkt, so dass 
wir eine moeglichst fruehzeitige Anmeldung empfehlen.

Willkommen sind Vortraege bzw. Praesentationen zu u.a. folgenden 
Themenschwerpunkten:
* Anwendung von GermaNet in NLP Verfahren zur Informations-
erschliessung, Dokumentklassifikation, Automatischen Text-
zusammenfassung, etc. 
* GermaNet in der Lesartendisambiguierung (WSD)
* Einsatz des GermaNet beim semantischen Tagging von Korpora 
* GermaNet in verschiedenen Sprachverarbeitungstools
* Theoretische Forschungen mit Hilfe des GermaNet (zu lexikalischen 
Feldern, Selektionspraeferenzen, etc.)
* Erweiterungen von Wortnetzen (Fachwortschatz, Kollokationen,
Idiome)
* Bezuege zu Ontologien, zum Semantic Web, Hypertext, RDF, XML etc. 

Die Beitraege sollten, inkl. Bibliographie und Abbildungen, maximal 
10 Seiten lang und in Deutsch oder Englisch abgefasst sein.

- ---------------------------------------------------------------
Lexical-semantic wordnets following the lines of the 
Princeton WordNet have become popular resources within the 
fields of computational linguistics and natural language processing.

This workshop aims at bringing together users and developers 
of the German wordnet GermaNet in order to exchange results 
and experiences as well as discuss desiderata and perspectives 
related to GermaNet resp. wordnets in general. The German wordnet
is being applied in various natural language processing tasks 
and on the Semantic Web. Obtaining feedback from various
users is also very important for the further development of the 
ressource.

The workshop mainly addresses researchers and users from 
the German-speaking community in order to keep costs 
low for participants.
(An international forum will be provided by the Global 
Wordnet Conference, taking place at Brno, Czech, in January 2004:
 http://www.fi.muni.cz/gwc2004/).
Since this workshop is generously sponsored by the GLDV,
no conference fees will be charged. 
The number of participants is limited to **35** so that
early registration is strongly recommended.

Papers and presentations are welcome on, among others, the following 
topics:
* application of GermaNet in natural language processing techniques 
w.r.t Information Retrieval, Document Classification, Automatic
Text Summarization, etc. 
* employment of GermaNet in Word Sense Disambiguation
* use of GermaNet for semantic tagging of corpora
* employment of GermaNet in various language processing tools
* theoretical research based on GermaNet, as with respect to 
lexical-semantic fields, selectional preferences, etc.
* extensions of wordnets (terminologies, collocations, idioms)
* relations to ontologies, the Semantic Web, Hypertext, RDF, XML, etc.

Papers should not exceed 10 pages, including bibliography,
figures, and acknowledgements, and should be written in German or 
English. The stylesheet for submitting contributions will be 
published very soon on our website: 
http://www.sfs.uni-tuebingen.de/lsd/GermaNet-Workshop/. 

Registration and/or requests are possible from now on:
