Dear all, (apologies for cross-posting)
with the almost finished standardization of the ITS 2.0 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/its20/), we are also close to provide a complete 
NIF 2.0 specification.
WS 1 is a more general tutorial held in conjunction with the LSWT and WS 
2 is a more specialized  workshop with developers and expert discussions 
and coding. While the former is for teaching and dissemination the 
latter is for advancing NIF and NER benchmarking and community meet and 

*WS 1, 24.9.2013, Leipzig: Content Analysis and the Semantic Web (Tutorial)*
held in conjunction with the Leipziger Semantic Web Tag 

Session 1: Semantic Web and NLP - Sebastian Hellmann, INFAI
Session 2 & 3: Relation Extraction and Opinion Mining - Feiyu Xu, DFKI
Session 4: Interactive session, Q&A, hands-on

*WS 2, 9.10.2013, Prague: NIF workshop: An open benchmark for 
Wikipedia-Based NER*
held in conjunction with the LOD2 plenary meeting (http://lod2.eu)

The NLP Interchange Format (NIF) 2.0 is currently created and is taking 
shape <http://persistence.uni-leipzig.org/nlp2rdf/>[1]. One large topic 
is to create interoperable Named Entity Recognition and Linking tools 
and corpora to ease the engineering burden, when benchmarking such 
systems. This workshop is a developer meeting to talk about:

  * NIF & NER: how currently NIF meets the needs of the NER community,
    and what is missing? Is it feasible to create a universal best practice?
  * NIF & GATE: whether and how can NIF be incorporated in GATE?
  * NIF & GATE NER eval framework: brainstorming on ideas for future
    research on how multilingual NER tools can be evaluated with support
    of GATE, DBpedia and possibly NIF.

all the best,
