==================================================================
GL2009: Generative Lexicons: From Theory to Implementation

First Call for Papers GL2009

5th International Conference on Generative Approaches to the Lexicon
==================================================================
[EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: June 11, 2009]

Organizers:

Pierrette Bouillon (ETI/TIM/ISSCO, University of Geneva, Switzerland)
Nicoletta Calzolari (Istituto di Linguistica Computazionale del CNR, Pisa, Italy)
Kyoko Kanzaki (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, Kyoto, Japan)
Anna Rumshisky (LLC, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA. USA)


Date: Sept. 17-19 2009

Location: CNR, Pisa, Italy

This year's GL conference will be in a new format, combining both an
open call for papers and a workshop on semantic annotation. The
annotation workshop will address the following three tasks:

1. Compositional mechanisms of argument selection and coercion
2. The role of qualia in argument selection and modification constructions
3. Type selection in modification of dot objects (complex types)

The workshop is intended to provide feedback and training for the
2010 SemEval "Argument Selection and Coercion" task, which focuses on
identifying the compositional operations involved in argument
selection by a predicate.


The goal of the GL conferences is to bring together diverse
contributions from theoretical and computational linguistics, computer
science, cognitive science, and lexicography, which explore compositionality from the
point of view of generative approaches to the lexicon. Historically,
contributions have assumed, as a starting point, the view outlined in
Generative Lexicon theory (Pustejovsky, 1995, 2001). Topics include:

- Polysemy and sense shifting
- Co-compositionality and creation of new word senses
- Type coercion and argument selection phenomena
- Argument realization: mapping from lexicon to syntax
- Cognitive foundations for semantic categories
- The trade-off between pragmatics and lexical knowledge
- Presupposition and commonsense knowledge
- Underspecification and word sense disambiguation

These topics can be approached from either a theoretical or
computational perspective. Computational issues relating to the above
phenomena include:

- Automatic knowledge acquisition
- Computational models of compositional phenomena
- Robust semantic annotation
- Evaluation of algorithms and annotation schemes

The conference will be held over a period of three days. The first
day will be devoted to the annotation workshop and the second day to
conference papers. The final day will be dedicated to the
presentation of results from the workshop and an open discussion of
remaining issues.
