1st Workshop on the Multilingual Semantic Web
collocated with the 19th Int. World Wide Web Conference (WWW2010)

Although knowledge processing on the Semantic Web is inherently
language-independent, human interaction with semantically structured and
linked data will remain inherently language-based as this will be done
preferably by use of text or speech input - in many different languages.
Semantic Web development will therefore be increasingly concerned with
knowledge access to and generation in/from multiple languages, i.e., in:

- multilingual querying of knowledge repositories and linked data
- multilingual knowledge and result presentation in semantic search
- multilingual verbalization of ontology structure in ontology  
engineering
- ontology-based information extraction from multilingual text and  
semi-structured data
- ontology learning from multilingual text and semi-structured data

Multilinguality is therefore an emerging challenge to Semantic Web
development and to its global acceptance - across language communities
around the world. The workshop will therefore be concerned with
discussion of new infrastructures, architectures, algorithms etc. that
will enable easy adaptation of Semantic Web applications to multiple
languages, addressing issues in representation, extraction, integration,
presentation etc.

Expected Topics

- models for the integration of linguistic information with ontologies
- architectures and infrastructure for a truly multilingual Semantic Web
- models for multilinguality in knowledge representation, in  
particular OWL and RDF(S)
- localization of ontologies to multiple languages, incl. label  
translation, multilingual terms
- adaptation of (multilingual) lexicons to ontologies
- automatic integration of (multilingual) lexicons with ontologies
- multilingual & cross-lingual ontology-based information extraction &  
ontology population
- multilingual aspects of semantic search & querying of knowledge  
repositories
- multilinguality and linked data (generation, querying, visualization  
& presentation)
- multilingual aspects of ontology verbalization
- ontology learning across languages
