International FrameNet Workshop 2013




The FrameNet Workshop will bring together researchers working on
FrameNet-style lexical resources and constructicons in different
languages or specialized vocabularies as well as those developing
applications that use FrameNet data.

The FrameNet project (http:/framenet.icsi.berkeley.edu) is
building a human- and machine-readable knowledge base for English
and annotating example sentences that show how words are used in
actual texts. FrameNet contains over 12,000 word senses and
nearly 200,000 manually annotations of sentences, providing a
unique training dataset for a variety of natural language
processing tasks, including automatic semantic role labeling,
information extraction, machine translation, event recognition,
and sentiment analysis. FrameNet also serves as a valence
dictionary, providing detailed information on the
syntactic-semantic combinatorial properties of a substantial
portion of the core vocabulary of English.

FrameNet is based on the principles of Frame Semantics (Fillmore
1976, 1977, 1982, 1985), a theory about meaning in language that
defines word meaning in terms of the semantic frame - an
experience-based schematization of the speaker's world that
represents an event, relation, or entity that also facilitates
inferencing. FrameNet was founded in 1997, and is hosted at the
International Computer Science Institute, and has been supported
primarily by the US National Science Foundation. FrameNet data
has been downloaded and used by thousands of researchers around
the world for a wide variety of purposes.

FrameNet projects following the Berkeley model have been in
progress in many languages for a number of years, including
Japanese, Chinese, German, Swedish, Spanish, and Brazilian
Portuguese, with others (e.g. French) just beginning their work.
Some of these projects have begun developing FrameNet extensions,
such as a language-specific constructicon, comparable to the
FrameNet constructicon (Fillmore, Lee-Goldman and Rhodes 2012),
which is based on the principles of Construction Grammar and
combines lexicography and language technology.


 Exchange information about current research and applications of
FrameNet projects in different languages

 Advance the field by stimulating dialogue among the developers
of FrameNets and extensions

 Define new directions for research and development of FrameNets
and their extensions


 Design decisions in the construction of FrameNet-like knowledge

 Cross-linguistic connections and multilingual FrameNets

 FrameNets for specific domains in relation to Berkeley FrameNet
and other lexica

 Extensions of FrameNet, e.g. language-specific constructicons

 Applications using FrameNet data

 Planning the future of FrameNet
