First Call for Papers GL2005
3rd International Workshop on Generative Approaches to the Lexicon

Pierrette Bouillon (ETI/TIM/ISSCO, University of Geneva, Switzerland)
Kyoko Kanzaki (National Institute of Information and Communications
Technology, NICT, Japan)

May 19-21 2005

University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland


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. The
discussions will be centered, but are not limited to, the newly
emerging view of "Generative Lexicon Theory" (Pustejovsky). Topics

- Philosophical Foundations of a Generative Approach
- Generative Lexicon Theory and Representation of Word Meaning
- Analysis of Linguistic Phenomena
- Framework for Lexical Semantics
- Philosophical differences between frameworks
- Critical Perspectives

In this third workshop we would like to keep all the above
perspectives, but put more of the focus on available on-line lexical
resources and their practical use in NLP applications, in particular:

- 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

- 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 to use Qualia structures in NLP applications?

The conference will be held over a period of two and a half days. Both
posters and presentations are foreseen.  Invited speakers include
James Pustejovsky (Brandeis University, Brandeis), Nicoletta Calzolari
(Istituto Di Linguistica Computazionale, Pisa) and Ann Copestake
(University of Cambridge). Other invited speakers will be announced
