Meeting Description:

Semantic relations have been for a long time subject of interest for linguists,
philosophers, researchers in artificial intelligence and cognitive science.
Theoretical linguists have collected, defined, and characterized semantic
relations (synonymy, antonymy, hyponymy), which proved to be extremely useful
for language engineers, helping them to design language resources in an
economical way.

Semantic relations are fundamental for processing language, be it for analyzing
or generating text, Information Extraction, Question Answering, knowledge
acquisition, etc. As widely shown in the literature, semantic relations allow
improving considerably the performance of NLP applications. Next to the
practical value, we would like to clarify at this workshop theoretical aspects
of semantic relations and their potential heuristic value for other tasks than NLP.

Call for Papers

Topics of the workshop will include but are not limited to:
- Knowledge representation and semantic relations
- Extraction of semantic relations from various sources (lexical ontologies,
corpora, Wikipedia, WWW)
- Exploitation of semantic relations in NLP applications
- Distributional methods for identifying semantic relations
- Lexico-syntactic patterns and semantic relations
- Machine Learning approaches for identifying semantic relations
- Semantic relations in language generation
- Semantic relations and terminology
- Semantic relations and access of information

Invited Speaker
Michael Zock, LIF, CNRS, Marseille, France
