Call For Papers
The Global Wordnet Association is pleased to announce that the 11th International Global Wordnet Conference (GWC2021) will be held from 18 to 21 January 2021 in Pretoria, South Africa. The conference will be hosted by the South African Centre for Digital Language Resources (SADiLaR).  Due to the uncertainty of what will be the circumstances during the conference as a result of COVID-19, the venue and format of conference presentation will be announced in due course.

COVID19 Pandemic

Please note that given the current global pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding international travel in January 2021, the organisers are also preparing a virtual conference as contingency. A final announcement as to the format of GWC2021 will be made in October 2020. Should the conference be hosted as a virtual event, a combination of the approaches successfully implemented by RAIL2020 and LREC2020 will be used as roadmap – authors will be asked to prerecord their presentations which will be streamed during a live virtual event with opportunity for questions and discussions after each presentation; proceedings will also be published and a reduced registration fee will be applicable.
