Meeting Description:

Cogalex-II (Cognitive Aspects of the Lexicon), 2nd Workshop on Cognitive Aspects
of the Lexicon (August 22, 2010) pre-conference workshop of COLING 2010
(Beijing, China)

This workshop is endorsed by the Special Interest Group on the Lexicon of the
Association for Computational Linguistics (SIGLEX) Cognitive Aspects of the
Lexicon (Cogalex-2).

Many lexicographers work nowadays with huge digital corpora, using language
technology to build and to maintain the lexicon. But access to the potential
wealth of information in dictionaries remains limited for the common user. Yet,
the new possibilities of electronic media in terms of comfort, speed and
flexibility (multiple inputs, polyform outputs) are enormous. Computational
resources are not prone to the same limitations as paperbound dictionaries. The
latter were limited in scope, being confined to a specific task (translation,
synonyms, ...) due to economical reasons, but this limitation is not justified

Today we can perform all tasks via one single resource, which may comprise a
dictionary, a thesaurus and even more. The goal of this workshop is to perform
the groundwork for the next generation of electronic dictionaries, that is, to
study the possibility of integrating the different resources, as well as to
explore the feasibility of taking the user's needs, knowledge and access
strategies into account.

Motivated by the success of Cogalex-1, a workshop held in conjunction with
Coling2008 (Manchester), we decided to organize a follow-up event: Cogalex-2.
