**** Apologies for multiple copies of this CFP. **** ----------------------------------------------------------------- CALL FOR PARTICIPATION at COGALEX 2nd Workshop on Cognitive Aspects of the Lexicon a COLING pre-conference workshop (august, 22nd, 2010 - Beijing, China) Workshop Web Site: http://pageperso.lif.univ-mrs.fr/~michael.zock/cogalex-2.html ----------------------------------------------------------------- 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 anymore. 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. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Registration: http://www.coling-2010.org/Registration.htm PROGRAM: [9:00 - 9:15] Opening Remarks [9 :15 - 10:30] Invited Keynote Address: Eduard Hovy (ISI) Distributional Semantics and the Lexicon [10:30 - 11:00] COFFEE BREAK SESSION 1: Semantics and Cognition?
