Wordnet Conference in Tartu
We are pleased to announce that the 7th Conference on Global WordNet will be held in Tartu (Estonia) on 25th until 29th January 2014. This conference follows up the previous conferences held in India (2002, 2010), in Czech Republic (2004), in Korea (2006), in Hungary (2008), and in Japan (2012).
WordNet is a lexical-semantic database, which resembles a thesaurus, in that it groups words together based on their meanings. Wordnets are considered as a valuable resource for natural language processing. Currently there exist wordnets for more than 60 languages. The conference aims to bring together linguists, computer linguists and language technologists who are interested in the connections of language and computers.
In conjunction with the conference a workshop dealing with lexical-semantic relations will be held.
