The International FrameNet Workshop 2020: Towards a Global, Multilingual FrameNet

In Marseilles, France with LREC 2020

Sponsored by ELRA.

The International FrameNet Workshop 2020: Towards a Global, Multilingual FrameNet, collocated with LREC, in Marseille, France, will bring together researchers in Frame Semantics and Construction Grammar, two areas which have traditionally been interrelated, but which have been developing somewhat independently in recent years. It is also addressed at language technology researchers working with language resources based on Frame Semantics or Construction Grammar. IFNW 2020 follows from three previous editions, one in 2018, held in Miyazaki, Japan, one in 2016, held in Juiz de Fora, Brazil, and one in 2013, held in Berkeley, USA. Important dates

Starting from the original FrameNet project (for English) at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI), projects for lexical resources based on Frame Semantics have sprouted in more than a dozen countries, with major efforts including Spanish, Japanese, Swedish, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, German, French, Korean, Dutch, Latvian, Finnish, and Hebrew, and a variety of other languages. Continuing the series of International FrameNet Workshops in 2013, 2016, 2017, and 2018, this one-day workshop will promote the exchange of ideas, data, techniques, and software among these projects and their many users. We welcome papers discussing the differences and similarities between work on Frame Semantics in different languages from both theoretical and practical perspectives. The theoretical papers might include questions such as:

Part of the meeting will be devoted to presentation of oral papers and posters. However, given the very different situations of the various projects, we will also allow ample time for small group and informal discussions, which are often the best way to promote mutual understanding and cooperation, and to resolve practical questions. All submissions must follow the LREC formatting guidelines and be submitted via the START page. When submitting a paper, authors will be asked to provide essential information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the work described in the paper or are a new result of your research. Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC authors to share the described LRs (data, tools, services, etc.) to enable their reuse and replicability of experiments (including evaluations).
