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.

WORKSHOP GOALS:  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

TOPICS INCLUDE:  Design decisions in the construction of
FrameNet-like knowledge bases  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
