                 Title of the talk: t.b.a.

After the success of the first GermaNet Workshop which took place
in October 2003 at Tuebingen, the GLDV Conference provides
an ideal opportunity to bring together wordnet researchers, developers
and users for a 2nd GermaNet Workshop.
The building of wordnets and their application in natural language
processing scenarios still plays an important role in Computational
Linguistics (LREC 2004, ACL 2004, etc.).
This workshop aims at exchanging results and experiences
as well as discussing desiderata and perspectives related to GermaNet
resp. other wordnets.

We are looking forward to receiving papers and presentations on the
following topics (contributions focussing on other wordnet-related
issues are also welcome):

* GermaNet and other wordnets applied to natural language processing for
e.g. Information Retrieval and Document Classification

* terminological extensions and applications of wordnets (inclusion
of domain-specific vocabularies, term extraction, etc.)

* ontological extensions of wordnets (machine learning techniques
for the acquisiton of semantic relations,
merging wordnets with upper ontologies, etc.)

Extended abstracts should be submitted in plain text format or pdf via 
They should contain up to 500 words, not including the bibliography.
