SENSE: The first workshop on Sense, Concept and Entity Representations and their Applications
A forum for fine-grained representations of senses, concepts and entities and for investigating their integration in NLP applications
The first workshop on Sense, Concept and Entity Representations and their Applications (SENSE) will be held on April 4, 2017 and hosted by the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL) in Valencia, Spain. The workshop will be organised by José Camacho Collados and Mohammad Taher Pilehvar.
The aim of the workshop is to focus on addressing one of the most important limitations of word-based techniques in that they conflate different meanings of a word into a single representation. SENSE brings together researchers in lexical semantics, and NLP in general, to investigate and propose sense-based techniques as well as to discuss effective ways of integrating sense, concept and entity representations into downstream applications.
