Call for participationwnlex – Wordnets as Lexicographical ResourcesWorkshop
co-located with Euralex2018, Ljubljana

16 July 2018, University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Arts

In co-location with the 19th Euralex International Congress, we are pleased
to announce a workshop on the topic of “Wordnets as Lexicographic Resources”.
This will consist of a series of talks and open discussion related to the
use of Princeton WordNet and wordnets developed for other languages as
resources for lexicography. All are welcome to attend and registration is
free. The workshop will take place on the 16th July in Ljubljana.



   From dictionaries to wordnets: The relation between mostly concept-based
   lexical-semantic networks (wordnets) and lemma-based lexical resources
   (dictionaries) has been explored so far mainly for wordnet-building
   purposes, and such projects and related issues are well documented.

   From wordnets to dictionaries: Wordnets have become a de facto standard
   for the drafting of dictionary content. Experiences resulting from using
   wordnets as a data source for lexicography and issues related to them have
   just started to be systematically discussed.

   We will define the state of the art in the discussed topics,
provide a survey
   of solved and unsolved issues, and an outlook on future work regarding
   wordnet as a resource in lexicographical workflows. The target group for
   this workshop is lexicographers.
