For this workshop, we invite papers addressing the topics listed, but not limited to, the ones below: 

  • the use of word embeddings for semi-automatic induction of semantic relations for wordnets
  • the use of wordnet senses for refining word embeddings
  • the use of wordnet data for evaluating word embedding algorithms and word embedding data

  • the use of semantic vectors for modifying sense representations, such as synset membership

Presentations will fall into one of the following categories:
