Helene,

  thanks. Would you like to send them the open call for use cases?

Best regards,

Philipp.

> *** Motivation ***
>
> Ontologies have numerous applications and they represent the 
> conceptual backbone of the Semantic Web. In fact, significant work has 
> gone into standardization efforts under the auspices of the W3C to 
> produce recommendations for data and knowledge representation 
> languages, i.e. the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and the Web 
> Ontology Language (OWL). However, current web-based knowledge 
> representation languages such as OWL and RDF(S) lack the rich 
> linguistic grounding that is required for language-mediated access to 
> ontologies. OWL and RDF(S) rely on a property rdfs:label to capture 
> the relation between a vocabulary element and its (preferred) 
> lexicalization in a given language. This lexicalization provides some 
> kind of lexical anchor that makes the concept, property, individual 
> etc. understandable to a user. The mechanisms for linguistic grounding 
> available in OWL and RDF(S) are thus far from being able to capture 
> the necessary linguistic and lexical information that NLP applications 
> working with a particular ontology need. The mission of the 
> Ontology-Lexicon community group is to develop a model for the 
> linguistic grounding of ontologies which allows to represent lexical 
> entries containing information about how ontology elements (classes, 
> properties, individuals etc.) are realized in multiple languages. A 
> more detailed overview of the scope and goal of the working group can 
> be found at [3].

>
> We thus call for participation of industrial stakeholders and

> By this, we offer interested parties the opportunity to participate in

<TEMPLATE>

> I. Motivation
>
> This should contain a short motivation of the use case, including a 
> description of the application context and why it is relevant to 
> specify the meaning of words with respect to a given ontology in the 
> context of the application.
>
> II. Description of the use case
>
> This section should describe the use case in more detail, specifying 
> what the lexicon-ontology interface would need to look like from the 
> point of view of the application and how the lexicon-ontology 
> interface is exploited in the context of the given application. If 
> available, the ontology for the application should be briefly described.
>
> III. Limitations of existing models
>
> This section should discuss existing models and their limitations with 
> respect to the needs of the application in question.
>
> IV. Example
>
> This section should provide a concrete example illustrating what kind 
> of knowledge should be stated in the lexicon-ontology interface from 
> the point of view of the application and how it would be exploited by 
> the application.
>
> V. Requirements
>
> This section is optional and might already advance concrete 
> requirements on the lexicon-ontology model.
