SENSE aims at bringing together researchers in lexical semantics to investigate and discuss how to integrate sense-based techniques into different NLP tasks and applications. The workshop will be targeted at covering (but not limited to) the following topics:

- Utilizing sense/concept/entity representations in applications such as Machine Translation, Information Extraction or Retrieval, Word Sense Disambiguation, Entity Linking, Text Mining, Semantic Parsing, Knowledge Base Construction or Completion, etc.
- Exploration of the advantages/disadvantages of using sense representations over word representations.
- New evaluation benchmarks or comparison studies for sense vector representations.
- Development of new representation techniques (unsupervised, knowledge-based or hybrid).
- Compositionality of senses: learning representations for phrases and sentences.
- Construction of sense representations for languages other than English as well as multilingual representations.
