Call for papers


Special issue of the French journal TAL edited by:
Pierrette Bouillon (TIM/ISSCO, Genève) and Evelyne Viegas
(Microsoft/Natural Language Group, Redmond)

Submission deadline: April 1, 2001


No one would argue about the importance of semantic lexicons for
Natural Language Processing applications such as machine translation,
automatic indexing, information extraction, text generation,
etc. However, there is no agreement on the type of information to use,
how to represent it or how to acquire it automatically.

This special issue directly addresses this difficult topic by investigating
how lexical semantic theories relate to applications in NLP. We will
emphasize the following questions:
- Which theory for which application?
- How to acquire information automatically?
- How to use it in applications?


- Acquisition of semantic lexicons
- Lexical semantics in NLP applications
- Generic versus specific resources?
- Which lexical semantic theory for which application?
- Types of lexical information
- Reuse of existing lexical data

The international journal Traitement Automatique des Langues (TAL) has
been published since 1969 by the French Association pour le Traitement
Automatique des Langues (ATALA) with the support of the Centre
National pour la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). The journal TAL covers
all fields of computational linguistics and its aim is to provide
mainly (but not only) French speaking researchers and students with
publications in all domains of computational linguistics. It appears
three times a year and is distributed by HERMES.
