>> Call for use cases for the ontology-lexicon model
>>
>>
>>
>> Since December 2011, the W3C Community Group on Ontology Lexica [1] has
>> started its work.
>>
>>
>>
>> *** Motivation ***
>>
>>
>>
>> Ontologies have numerous applications and they represent the conceptual
>> backbone of the Semantic Web. In fact, significant efforts have 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 representations 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 in some
>> sense provides a 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 to
>> 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].
>>
>>
>>
>> *** Open Call for Use Cases ***
>>
>>
>>
>> With this call for use cases, we intend to expand the scope of our current
>> use cases (see [2]) by including use cases that are inspired in more
>> concrete and real applications.
>>
>>
>>
>> We thus call for participation by industrial stakeholders and application
>> developers in the Community Group by providing a description of a use case
>> along the template found below.
>>
>> By this, we offer interested parties to participate in relevant
>> standardization activities and have the chance to contribute with their
>> ideas to the process of creating a standard for the representation of
>> ontology lexica.
>>
>>
>>
>> We kindly ask you all to provide send the use case description to Philipp
>> Cimiano (cimiano@cit-ec.uni-bielefeld.de) until May 3rd. Any questions or
>> comments can be addressed to Philipp Cimiano at the above email address.
>>
>>
>>
>> *** Participation in the Group ***
>>
>>
>>
>> People interested in the group’s activities, discussion and teleconferences
>> are welcome to join the group at [1].

>> <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 how 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 of 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.
