Call for papers: GLOBALEX 2016: Lexicographic Resources for Human Language

Full day workshop at LREC2016 | Portorož, Slovenia | May 24, 2016

Submission deadline: February 15, 2016 (see also Important dates below)

GLOBALEX 2016 Website http://ailab.ijs.si/globalex/

GLOBALEX 2016 constitutes the first-ever joint initiative by the five major
continental lexicography associations – AFRILEX, ASIALEX, AUSTRALEX, DSNA,
EURALEX – and the international conference on electronic lexicography – eLex –
and is a step in forming GLOBALEX, a global constellation for
cross-continental, regional, local, topical and special interest communities
concerned with lexicography.

The workshop aims to explore knowledge sharing and cooperation among members
and with others, bridge over gaps in different research fields and communities,
and set global standards for the creation, evaluation, dissemination and usage
of lexicographic resources and solutions and for the interoperability of
lexicography with HLT and other disciplines in the academe and industry
worldwide. It will include papers and software demonstrations as well as a
round table, regarding lexicography and

** globalization and digitization

** language learning and translation

** NLP and corpora

** terminology

** the Multilingual Digital Single Market

** Linguistic Linked (Open) Data, the Semantic Web, Artificial Intelligence


** Interoperability of lexicography with Human Language Technology and external

** Setting standards for the evaluation of lexicographic resources and their


** Lexicographers and dictionary makers

** Computational and corpus linguists

** NLP researchers and engineers

** Terminologists

** Reference scientists, big data and knowledge system analysts


We will accept two types of submissions:

** Abstract (500 words) OR

** Full paper (6-10 pages)

For formatting guidelines for full papers, please use the LREC submission
format. Both abstracts and full papers will address any of the topics included
in this CfP, but full papers have the advantage of presenting the authors’ work
and ideas at a greater level of detail. All submissions (whether abstract-only
or papers) must be received by the deadline below and will be reviewed by
experts in the field.


Submission deadline: February 15, 2016

Notification of acceptance: March 6, 2016

Camera-ready papers: March 29, 2016

GLOBALEX Workshop: May 24, 2016


Identify, Describe and Share your LRs!

Describing your LRs in the LRE Map is now a normal practice in the submission
procedure of LREC (introduced in 2010 and adopted by other conferences). To
continue the efforts initiated at LREC 2014 about “Sharing LRs” (data, tools,
web-services, etc.), authors will have the possibility, when submitting a
paper, to upload LRs in a special LREC repository. This effort of sharing LRs,
linked to the LRE Map for their description, may become a new “regular” feature
for conferences in our field, thus contributing to creating a common repository
where everyone can deposit and share data.

As scientific work requires accurate citations of referenced work so as to
allow the community to understand the whole context and also replicate the
experiments conducted by other researchers, LREC 2016 endorses the need to
uniquely Identify LRs through the use of the International Standard Language
Resource Number (ISLRN, www.islrn.org<http://www.islrn.org>), a Persistent
Unique Identifier to be assigned to each Language Resource. The assignment of
ISLRNs to LRs cited in LREC papers will be offered at submission time.
