Meeting Description

This workshop aims to bring together researchers working on a broad range of
problems related to the automatic management of multilingual lexical resources -
their acquisition, maintenance, customization, and re-use. The scope of the
workshop includes evaluation of multilingual lexicons intended for a wide
variety of applications: from personalized glossaries for a translation project
to large-scale machine-readable dictionaries and databases. Specifics topics of
interest to the workshop include: acquisition of bilingual lexical knowledge
from parallel and comparable corpora, and from the Web; acquisition of domain
terminology, multiword expressions, multilingual lexical taxonomies, named
entity transliteration.

RANLP-07 Workshop on Acquisition and Management of Multilingual Lexicons
Endorsed by the ACL Special Interest Group on the Lexicon (ACL-SIGLEX)

Aims

The current trend of information exchange on the Internet to become ever more
multilingual has stimulated new important developments in the field of
multilingual NLP. The present workshop is concerned with the problem of
automatic management of lexical resources, which lie at the heart of many
multilingual technologies.

Recently there has been an increased interest in the automated discovery of
equivalent expressions in different languages. New interesting directions have
sprung up, such as the use of the Web and comparable corpora for this task, and
new kinds of lexical phenomena, such as multiword expressions and named
entities, have come into focus.

This workshop will bring together researchers working on a broad range of
problems related to the management of multilingual lexical resources - their
acquisition, maintenance, customization, and re-use. The scope of the workshop
includes evaluation of multilingual lexicons intended for a broad range of
applications: from personalized glossaries for a translation project to
large-scale machine-readable dictionaries and databases.

Topics

Specific topics of interest for the proposed workshop are:

- Acquisition of lexical knowledge from parallel and comparable corpora, and
from the Web
- Porting, merging and domain customisation of existing lexical resources using
NLP technologies
- Acquisition of domain terminology
- Acquisition of multi-word expressions
- Acquisition of translations for polysemous words
- Acquisition of multilingual lexical taxonomies
- Named Entity transliteration
- Acquisition of cognates and loanwords
- Extraction of equivalent phrases and sentences from comparable corpora
- Applications of multilingual lexicons and their evaluation within:
- Statistical Machine Translation
- Computer-Aided Translation
- Information Retrieval (Question Answering, Text Retrieval, Text
Classification and Clustering)
- Knowledge Management

Submission Instructions

Off topic: Δεν ξέρω για το workshop, πάντως το Μπόροβετς έχει εξαιρετικό χιονοδρομικό -απ'ότι έχω μάθει- και αν είναι σαν το Μπάνσκο (στο οποίο έχω πάει) προτείνω να αφήσετε το workshop και να πιάσετε το σκι.

Λενιώ εσύ θα πας στο workshop;


Έντιτ: Μόλις είδα την ημερομηνία του workshop. Είμαι σίγουρη ότι οι πιο ικανοί σκιέρ από εσάς θα μπορέσουν θαυμάσια να κάνουν σκι στις πέτρες του χιονοδρομικού στις 26 Σεπτεμβρίου. :-))
