Since the first workshop in 2000, CLSW has been held in different Asian cities, including Hong Kong, Beijing, Taipei, Singapore, Xiamen, Hsin Chu, Yantai, Suzhou, Wuhan, Zhengzhou and Macao.  Over the years, CLSW has become one of the most important venues for scholars to report and discuss the latest progress in Chinese Lexical Semantics and related fields, including Theoretical Linguistics, Applied Linguistics, Computational Linguistics, Information Processing and Computational Lexicography. CLSW has significantly impacted and promoted academic research and application development in the fields.   

Accepted papers will be included into workshop proceedings. Selected English papers will be included in the proceedings, published in Springer’s LNAI series and indexed by both SCOPUS and EI. CLSW 2016 will also give out best paper awards to top papers. In addition, excellent papers from the workshop will be recommended for consideration for publication in leading journals such as Applied Linguistics (《语言文字应用》), Journal of Chinese Information Processing (《中文信息学报》), Lingua Sinica and The International Journal of Knowledge and Language Processing (IKLP).
