First call for Papers GL2007

4st International Workshop on Generative Approaches to the Lexicon

Pierrette Bouillon (ETI/TIM/ISSCO, University of Geneva, Switzerland)

Technology, NICT, Japan)

The aim of GL workshops 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 emerging view of
"Generative Lexicon Theory" (Pustejovsky). Topics include:

- Philosophical foundations of a generative approach
- Generative lexicon theory and representation of word meaning
- Analysis of linguistic phenomena in a generative perspective
- Frameworks for lexical semantics
- Philosophical differences between frameworks
- Critical perspectives and evaluation

In this fourth workshop we would like to keep all the above
perspectives, but put more of the focus on building on-line GL
resources for NLP tasks, in particular:

- Arguments and counter-arguments in favour of a GL resource
- Acquiring lexical information: methodology, tools, resources
- Maintaining and evaluating GL resources on systematic grounds
- Scalability for different NLP tasks

Papers 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 are:

- How to build a Generative Lexicon? 
- How a Generative Lexicon can be extracted from existing resources 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 days. Both posters
and presentations are foreseen and will be published in the
proceedings.  Invited speakers will be announced later.
