The LREC 2018 Workshop Globalex 2018 “Lexicography & WordNets”, that will take place on the 8th of May 2018 in Miyazaki, Japan, is jointly organized by the GLOBALEX Preparatory Board, the Global WordNet Association (GWA) and ELEXIS.

The aim of this workshop is to explore the development of global standards for the evaluation of lexicographic resources and their incorporation into new LT services and other devices.

The field of lexicography is continuously shifting to digital media – with effects on all stages of research, development, design, evaluation, publication, dissemination, marketing and usage – and modern lexicographic content is becoming increasingly interoperable with numerous computational domains and solutions as part of large-scale knowledge systems and collaborative intelligence.

At the same time, new interlinked linguistic resources are being created to meet requirements for language technology (LT), leading to better federation, interoperability and flexible representation. In this context, lexicography constitutes a natural part of the Linguistic Linked (Open) Data (LLOD) scheme, currently represented by WordNets, FrameNets, and LT-oriented lexicons, ontologies and lexical databases. New attempts are underway to embed lexicography in a theoretical framework as part of developing a research paradigm and common standards for interoperability with LT systems and applications.
