For this workshop, we invite papers addressing topics including, but not limited to, the ones below:

-- the use of word embeddings for semi-automatic induction of semantic relations for wordnets
-- the use of wordnet senses for refining word embeddings
-- the use of wordnet data for evaluating word embedding algorithms and embedding data
-- enriching word synsets with word embedding information
-- the use of semantic vectors for modifying sense representations, such as synset membership

Presentations will fall into one of the following categories:

-- long papers (30 mins, 8 pages)
-- short papers (15 mins, 5 pages)

Submissions should be anonymous and will have to state one of the preferred categories. Acceptance may be subject to changes in the category of the presentation, e.g. a long paper submission may be accepted as a short paper. All contributions accepted for the workshop will be published in the conference proceedings of the 9th Global Wordnet Conference.
