EACL 2006 Workshop on

Making Sense of Sense:
Bringing Psycholinguistics and Computational Linguistics Together

April 4, 2006, Trento, Italy


The EACL 2006 Workshop on Making Sense of Sense: Bringing
Psycholinguistics and Computational Linguistics Together will be
hosted in conjunction with the 11th Conference of the European Chapter
of the Association for Computational Linguistics that will take place
April 3-7, 2006, in Trento, italy.


Although research on lexical ambiguity has a long history in the field
of psycholinguistics, work in this area is rarely considered in
debates concerned with identifying relevant sense distinctions for
NLP. Recent research in the field of psycholinguistics may offer
significant insight into the sense distinctions that humans readily
recognize. This workshop will explore approaches to the problem of
sense distinction from the viewpoint of both computational linguists
and psycholinguists, in order to bring the work in each field to bear
on the problem.


Authors are invited to submit full papers on original, unpublished
work in the topic area of this workshop.  Submissions should be
formatted using the EACL 2006 stylefiles with overt author and
affiliation information and not exceeding 8 pages.  The EACL 2006
stylefiles are available at

Please send your PDF file no later than January 6, 2006, to

Each submission will be reviewed at least by two members of the
program committee. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop
