         **** Apologies for multiple copies of this CFP. ****
           2nd Workshop on Cognitive Aspects of the Lexicon
a COLING pre-conference workshop (august, 22nd, 2010 - Beijing, China)
  Workshop Web Site:

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.
