3rd Workshop on the Multilingual Semantic Web colocated with the 11th 
International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2012), Boston MA, USA

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 it often requires 
text or speech input  in many different languages. Semantic Web 
development will therefore be increasingly concerned with knowledge 
extraction, integration and interaction in multiple languages, making 
multilinguality an emerging challenge to the global advance of Semantic 
Web and linked data use and development across language communities 
around the world. The 3rd workshop on the Multilingual Semantic Web has 
a focus on the underlying multilingual web infrastructure as well as the 
linguistic annotation needed for multilingual knowledge extraction, 
integration and interaction. The workshop will be supported by the 
Ontology-Lexica W3C Community Group, the W3C MultilingualWeb-LT Working 
Group, the ISO-Space project and ISO-TimeML:

The vision of the Multilingual Semantic Web workshop series is the 
creation of a Semantic Web where semantically structured information can 
be aligned, integrated and used across languages. The workshops are 
concerned with research questions on how current Semantic Web 
infrastructure can and should be extended to support this vision.

Expected Topics - among others
- best practices for representing multilingual data on the Web
- models for the integration of linguistic information with ontologies
- architectures and infrastructure for the Multilingual Semantic Web
- models for multilinguality in OWL and RDF(S)
- localization of ontologies to multiple languages
- automatic integration of (multilingual) lexicons with ontologies
- multilingual aspects of ontology-based information extraction
- multilingual aspects of semantic search
- multilingual aspects of knowledge repository querying
- multilinguality and linked data (generation, querying, visualization)
- multilingual aspects of ontology verbalization
- ontology learning across languages
