SemaNet'02: Building and Using Semantic Networks Workshop in conjunction with COLING 2002, 1 September 2002, Taipei, Taiwan Workshop website: http://www.ee.ust.hk/% 7Esemanet02/ COLING website: http://www.coling2002.sinica .edu.tw/ Call for Papers There has been a lot of interest over the past decade in WordNet (http://www.cogsci.prin ceton.edu/%7Ewn/), a thesaurus-like semantic network that has many NLP applications including (but not limited to) machine translation and multilingual (or cross-lingual) information retrieval. Among the languages which have attracted higher interest recently are some of the "low-density" languages, in which very little research and resources exist. A semantic network in such a language would be a very useful resource; however, the amount of needed resources and the length of time needed to hand-construct such a network is often prohibitive. To add to the problem, some minority languages (especially the indigeneous languages) have very different language structures, which may become problematic when attempting to fit concepts in those languages to wordnet hierarchies which were constructed for languages such as English. The goal of this one-day workshop is to explore issues surrounding the construction of semantic networks, including the construction of wordnets for minority languages and multilingual wordnets. In addition, we would like to invite papers and demos on industrial applications.
