1. Goal

The way we look at the lexicon has changed dramatically over the last few decades. While in the past being considered as an appendix to grammar, the lexicon has now moved to the center stage. Indeed, there is hardly any task in NLP that can be conducted without it. Also, many new proposals have emerged during the last few years. Living in a fast-moving world, it is hard for anyone to stay on top of the wave. Hence the reason for organizing events like this.

The goal of this workshop is to provide builders and users of lexical resources (researchers in NLP, psychologists, computational lexicographers) a forum to share their knowledge and needs concerning the construction, organization, and use of a lexicon by people (lexical access) and machines (NLP, IR, data mining).

Like in the past, we invite researchers to address unsolved problems concerning the lexicon, by considering this time however also Large Language Models (LLMs). More precisely, we would like to explore their potential for building and using lexical resources as well as their ability to deal with the cognitive aspects of the lexicon.

We solicit contributions including, but not limited to, the topics listed below, topics, which can be considered from any of the following points of view:

- traditional-, computational- or corpus linguistics,
- neuro- or psycholinguistics (tip of the tongue problem, word associations),
- mathematics (vector-based approaches, graph theory, small-world problems), etc.

2. Possible Topics

• The potential of Large Language Models for the creation and use of lexical resources;
• Organization, i.e., structure of the lexicon;
• The meaning of words and how to reveal it;
• Analysis of the conceptual input given by a dictionary user;
• Methods for crafting dictionaries or indexes;
• Creation of new types of dictionaries;
• Dictionary access (navigation and search strategies), interface issues

3. Important dates:

• Submission deadline: February 23, 2024
• Date of notification: March 20, 2024
• Camera ready deadline: March 29, 2024
• COGALEX workshop: May 20, 2024


Two types of submissions are invited:

• Full papers: should not exceed eight (8) pages of text, plus unlimited references. These are intended to be reports of original research.
• Short papers: may consist of up to four (4) pages of content, plus unlimited references. Appropriate short paper topics include preliminary results, application notes, descriptions of work in progress, etc.

Dual submission policy: papers may NOT be submitted to the workshop if they are or will be concurrently submitted to another meeting or publication.

Submissions must be anonymous, electronic and in PDF format. They must be made via SOFTCONF:
