> FrameNet*
> The International FrameNet Workshop 2020: Towards a Global, Multilingual
> FrameNet, collocated with LREC, in Marseille, France, will bring together
> researchers in Frame Semantics and Construction Grammar, two areas which
> have traditionally been interrelated, but which have been developing
> somewhat independently in recent years. It is also addressed at language
> technology researchers working with language resources based on Frame
> Semantics or Construction Grammar. IFNW 2020 follows from three previous
> editions, one in 2018, held in Miyazaki, Japan <http://www.ufjf.br/ifnw/>,
> one in 2016, held in Juiz de Fora, Brazil
> <https://www.ufjf.br/iccg9/home/international-framenet-workshop/>, and
> one in 2013, held in Berkeley, USA
> <https://spraakbanken.gu.se/eng/Forskning/SweFN/FrameNetWS2013>.

> ------------------------------
> Call for papers
> Starting from the original FrameNet project (for English) at the
> International Computer Science Institute (ICSI), projects for lexical
> resources based on Frame Semantics have sprouted in more than a dozen
> countries, with major efforts including Spanish, Japanese, Swedish,
> Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, German, French, Korean, Dutch, Latvian,
> Finnish, and Hebrew, and a variety of other languages. Continuing the
> series of International FrameNet Workshops in 2013, 2016, 2017, and 2018,
> this one-day workshop will promote the exchange of ideas,
> data, techniques, and software among these projects and their many users.
> We welcome papers discussing the differences and similarities between work
> on Frame Semantics in different languages from both theoretical and
> practical perspectives.
> The theoretical papers might include questions such as:
> -
> What determines which frames are similar (or essentially identical)
> across languages? How can we characterize the differences between frames
> across languages?
> -
> What can we learn from parallel annotation in general and the current
> TED talk parallel annotation in particular? How does that relate to
> translation theory and practice?
> -
> What can we learn from or contribute to other meaning representations
> such as PropBank <https://propbank.github.io/>, AMR
> <https://amr.isi.edu/>, UCCA <http://www.cse.huji.ac.il/> predicate
> logic, etc.? How can we integrate frames for general vocabulary with those
> for specialized domains? Are there semantic domains where Frame Semantics
> does not seem applicable?
> Practical papers might discuss questions such as:
> -
> How can we improve collaboration between Frame Semantic projects for
> different languages? Are there methods to design databases, create
> software, do annotation, etc. that will facilitate reuse, especially by new
> projects? What role could/should/do machine learning and machine
> translation play in developing FrameNets?
> -
> What policies regarding public release of data are in place for each
> project? Should we aim at a common policy? Should there be limitations on
> the use of FrameNet data? If so, what? What role does/could commercial
> support play in your work?
> -
> What relation is there now or should there be between projects which
> are primarily based on Frame Semantics and those primarily based on
> Construction Grammar? Between Frame Semantic projects and those based on
> other meaning representations or aggregations of representations, such as
> Uby
> <https://www.informatik.tu-darmstadt.de/ukp/research_6/data/lexical_resources/uby/index.en.jsp>
> , BabelNet <https://babelnet.org/>, and Framester
> <https://github.com/framester/Framester/wiki/Framester-Documentation>?
> Part of the meeting will be devoted to presentation of oral papers and
> posters. However, given the very different situations of the various
> projects, we will also allow ample time for small group and informal
> discussions, which are often the best way to promote mutual understanding
> and cooperation, and to resolve practical questions.
> All submissions must follow the LREC formatting guidelines and be
> submitted via the START page
> <https://www.softconf.com/lrec2020/Framenet2020/>. When submitting a
> paper, authors will be asked to provide essential information about
> resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies, standards, evaluation
> kits, etc.) that have been used for the work described in the paper or are
> a new result of your research. Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC authors
> to share the described LRs (data, tools, services, etc.) to enable their
> reuse and replicability of experiments (including evaluations).
