Hi Philipp,

Let me this last minute addition to the lists (I can post it there myself):

>> *Call for use cases for the ontology-lexicon model *
>>
>>
>> The W3C Community Group on Ontology Lexica [1] has started its work in
>> December 2011.
>>
>> *** 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].
>>
>> *** 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 by
>> more concrete and real applications.
>>
>> We thus call for participation of industrial stakeholders and
>> application developers in the Community Group by providing a description
>> of a use case using the template found below.
>>
>> By this, we offer interested parties the opportunity to participate in
>> standardization activities that are relevant and potentially beneficial
>> for their application development, and contribute their ideas to the
>> process of creating a standard for the representation of ontology
>> related lexicons.
>>
>> We kindly ask you all to 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
>> 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.
