CONFERENCE TOPICS

The aim of the tenth Chinese Lexical Semantics Workshop (CLSW2009) is to bring together researchers interested in any aspect of Chinese lexical semantics. Topics of interest for the workshop include theoretical, computational or application related issues of lexical semantic research. Papers are invited on substantial, original, and unpublished research in any aspects of lexical semantics in Chinese, including, but not limited to, the following:

  1. Recent advancement in lexical semantics, for instance: sememe, semantic features, semantic net, words contrast between Chinese and foreign language, the relationship between lexical semantics and syntax semantics, system of semantic category, etc.

  2. Construction of corpus, and theories, technology, tools, methods, criterions for sense tagging.

  3. Construction of Chinese word resources, for instance, dictionaries, thesauri, ontology, etc; construction of Chinese lexical resources, for instance, CCD, How Net, WordNet, etc.

  4. Representation, computation and inference of Chinese lexical meanings.

  5. Application of Chinese lexical semantics on natural language processing, including information extraction,information retrieval, answering question system, machine translation, lexicography, etc.

  6. New methods of Chinese Lexical Semantics, including the research about machine learning, evolutionary computation, Neural Networks, etc.

Papers on any other topics in Chinese Lexical Semantics and related fields are cordially welcome.


SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

The paper could be written in either Chinese or English. It is limited to six pages, including charts and references. Please send your submission in the form of PDF or RTF advanced Word 2000 by Email. You can consult www.chineselex.org for the detailed format requirements.
