CfP - 4th Workshop on the Multilingual Semantic Web, 1st June 2015,
Portoroz, Slovenia, co-located with the 12th Extended Semantic Web
Conference (ESWC 2015)
=================================================================

The Multilingual Semantic Web workshop series is concerned with research
questions on how current Semantic Web infrastructure can and should be
extended to advance the Semantic Web and linked data use and development
across language communities around the world. This involves several
challenges such as ontology localisation, cross-lingual question answering,
cross-lingual ontology and data matching, representation of lexical
information on the Web of Data, etc. An infrastructure should be in place
for defining ontologies and vocabularies in multiple languages with a
transparent semantics across them.

NLP and machine learning for linked data can benefit from exploiting
multilingual language resources such as annotated corpora, wordnets,
bilingual dictionaries, etc. if they are themselves formally represented
and linked by following the linked data principles. We argue that a
critical mass of language resources as linked data on the Web can lead to a
new generation of linked data-aware NLP techniques and tools which, in
turn, will serve as basis for richer multilingual multimedia Web content
analysis.

In addressing such research topics, the workshop aims at providing a forum
for researchers at the intersection of NLP, multilingual information
access, Linked Data and the Semantic Web to exchange ideas on realizing the
Multilingual Semantic Web. In this edition of the workshop we encourage
submissions related to NLP applications, multimedia, and Web content
analytics and long (12 pages) and short papers (8 pages) on the following
topics:

* multilingual Semantic Web and Linked Data use cases
* multilingual content analytics on the Web
* linguistic linked (open) data
* cross-lingual information access, search and retrieval
* NLP and machine learning approaches for the Semantic Web and Linked Data
* terminology and linguistic resource development in a Linked Data context
* integration and mapping of heterogeneous Linked Data
* linguistic and semantic annotation in a Semantic Web and Linked Data
context

The best papers of the workshop will be included in the supplementary
proceedings of ESWC 2015, which will appear in the Springer LNCS series.
