On the 22nd of April 2020, we held the fifth meeting of the Open Dutch FrameNet project. In attendance were Piek Vossen, Johan Bos, Antske Fokkens, Tommaso Caselli, Malvina Nissim, Levi Remijnse, Gosse Minnema, Silvia Brambilla, and Marten Postma.
Given these unreal circumstances, the meeting was a digital one.
We started by looking back at the achievements from the last three months. Two papers were accepted at the International FrameNet workshop!
- L. Remijnse and G. Minnema, “Towards Reference-Aware FrameNet Annotation,” in The international FrameNet workshop 2020, in press.
- M. Postma, L. Remijnse, F. Ilievski, A. Fokkens, S. Titarsolej, and P. Vossen, “Combining Conceptual and Referential Annotation to Study Variation in Framing,” in The international FrameNet workshop 2020, in press.
During the meeting, we focused on two main topics.
Towards a concrete research outline for variation in framing (Levi Remijnse)
Levi Remijnse discussed his research proposal for capturing variation in framing by focusing on historical distance. Which datasets are available? What are their (dis)advantages? An interesting presentation following equally interesting questions.
BERT for end-to-end FrameNet SRL (Gosse Minnema)
Gosse Minnema discussed his work on building a Semantic Role Labeling system for FrameNet using BERT. He discussed the motivation, methodology, and very interesting results. The presentation also included good error analysis to show and the strengths and weaknesses of the system.
We finished the meeting by scheduling two more meetings in the near future, each dedicated to one topic.
