Requirements Gathering: Best practices for Multilingual Linked Open Data (BP-MLOD), as part of the W3C Multilingual Web Workshop, Rome, 2013. (http://www.multilingualweb.eu/en/documents/rome-workshop/rome-lod)

CO-CHAIRS: DOMINIC JONES (TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN), JOSE E. LABRA (UNIVERSITY OF OVIEDO), JORGE GRACIA (UNIVERSIDAD POLITÉCNICA DE MADRID).
MODERATORS: DOMINIC JONES, JORGE GRACIA

OVERVIEW:

Across a number of talks, over the last few years, the concept of Best Practices for Multilingual Linked Open Data (BP-MLOD) has re-appeared time and time again. As part of the W3C Multilingual Web Workshop, Rome, 2013, a breakout session will be held with the specific task of gathering a common set of requirements for implementing best practices in MLOD. The target for this session is to crowd-source ideas from the community regarding BP-MLOD. A number of short, lightning presentations will be given, followed by an open discussion with a shared common output. A high level overview of this output will be presented back to the MLW community during the conference. The aim, post-conference, being to produce and publish (via the W3C Multilingual Web portal www.multilingualweb.eu) a reference white paper based on the output of the breakout session.

TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION INCLUDE:

	• Resource naming: Opaque URIs, meaningful URIs, IRIs in MLOD.
	• Labelling and multilingual lexical information.
	• Multilingual vocabularies: Internationalization and localization of ontologies.
	• Particularities of non-western languages.
	• MLOD and localization applied across workflows and different formats.

STRUCTURE:

The structure of the session will be a number of 5 minute talks each presenting high-level ideas, concepts and discussion points. The idea is that speakers present their own views, targeted at developing a discussion around BP-MLOD. Slides will be automatically timed and the discussion will be purposefully high level. Eight speakers will present their views, these being:

	• Gordon Dunsire, “Multilingual bibliographic standards in RDF: the IFLA experience”, Independent Consultant; Chair of IFLA Namespaces Technical Group (Remote speaker).
	• Ivan Herman, “Towards Multilingual Data on the Web?” Semantic Web Activity Lead, W3C.
	• Jose E. Labra, “Patterns for Multilingual LOD: an overview”, University of Oviedo, Asturias, Spain.
	• Dave Lewis, “XLIFF workflow and Multilingual Provenance in Linked Data”, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.
	• Charles McCathie Nevile, Web Standards, Yandex.
	• Roberto Navigli, "BabelNet: a multilingual encyclopedic dictionary as LOD", Sapienza University of Rome, Italy.
	• Haofen Wang, “The state of the art of Chinese LOD development”, APEX labs, China Zhishi.me
	• Daniel Vila, “Naming and Labeling Ontologies in the Multilingual Web”, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain.

OUTCOME:

Following on from the presentations a high level overview of the topics and discussion will be formed in a shared document. Contributions from attendees, not just speakers, are a very important part of this process. Speakers provide the starting point for a continued audience-led discussion. This discussion will form the basis for a presentation back to the MLW community and subsequent publication as a white paper on the Multilingual Web homepage. Contributors will be invited to have on-going input into the publication process.

Attendance at the breakout session is included as part of the registration for the Multilingual Web Workshop via the main workshop webpage:www.multilingualweb.eu/en/documents/rome-workshop/rome-cfp For more information on the session please contact Dominic.Jones@scss.tcd.ie
