TRACK 1 – 1st Monolingual Word Sense Alignment Shared Task

Call for Participation

The ELEXIS project is organizing a shared task on the task of monolingual word sense alignment across dictionaries as part of the GLOBALEX 2020 – Linked Lexicography workshop at the 12th Language Resources and Evaluation Conference (LREC 2020) taking place on Tuesday, May 12 2020 in Marseille (France).

Monolingual word sense alignment is a challenging task of finding matching senses between two dictionary entries and will play a crucial role in the development of new lexical resources. In addition, this task presents a challenging combination of NLP, semantic textual similarity and reasoning in order to find the best alignment across a group of senses.
