Deadline Extension: Linked Data in Linguistics II (LDL-2013, Sep 23rd 2013, Pisa)

Dear colleagues,

we would like to announce that the deadline for submissions to the 2nd
Workshop on Linked Data in Linguistics (LDL-2013), to be held in Pisa,
Italy, Sep 23rd, 2013, has been extended to July 7th, 2013. Please
find the second call for papers / deadline extension attached.

The goal of the workshop is to assemble researchers from various
fields of linguistics, natural language processing, and information
technology to present and discuss principles, case studies, and best
practices for representing, publishing and linking linguistic data
collections, including corpora, dictionaries, lexical networks,
translation memories, thesauri, etc., infrastructures developed on
that basis, their use of existing standards, and the publication and
distribution policies that were adopted.

We particularly invite contributions discussing the application of the
Linked Open Data paradigm to linguistic data as it might provide an
important step towards making linguistic data: i) easily and uniformly
queryable, ii) interoperable and iii) sharable over the Web using open
standards such as the HTTP protocol and the RDF data model. Recent
research in this direction has lead to the emergence of a Linked Open
Data cloud of linguistic resources, the Linguistic Linked Open Data
(LLOD) cloud, where Linked Data principles were applied to language
resources, allowing them to be published and linked in a principled
way. Although not restricted to lexical resources, these play a
particularly prominent role in this context.

The intended audience includes computational linguists and NLP
engineers interested in the application of Semantic Web formalisms and
related technologies to language data, empirically-working linguists
and lexicographers interested in the representation, exchange and
interlinking of linguistic data and metadata, and developers of
infrastructures for linguistic data and other researchers with an
interest in both aspects.

LDL-2013 is organized in the context of two recent community efforts,
the Open Linguistics Working Group of the Open Knowledge Foundation
(OWLG), and the W3C Ontology-Lexica Community Group. The Open
Linguistics Working Group has spearheaded the creation of new data and
the republishing of existing linguistic resources as linked open data.
Similarly, the W3C Ontology-Lexica Community Group is seeking to
develop standard models for representing and publishing (ontology-)
lexica and other lexical resources as RDF.

We particularly invite contributions related (but not limited) to the
following topics:
1. Use cases and project proposals for the creation, maintenance and
publication of linguistic data collections that are linked with other
2. Modelling linguistic data and metadata with OWL and/or RDF
3. Ontologies for linguistic data and metadata collections
4. Applications of such data, other ontologies or linked data from any
subdiscipline of linguistics (may include work in progress or project
5. Descriptions of data sets, ideally following Linked Data principles
6. Legal and social aspects of Linguistic Linked Open Data

We accept submission of both long (up to 8 pages plus 2 pages for
references) and short papers (up to 4 pages plus 2 pages for
references) to be presented as long or short oral presentation at the
workshop. The papers of the workshop will be published as CEUR
proceedings. In addition, we aim for a journal special issue as
post-conference proceedings in which a selected amount of papers
presented at the workshop will be published.
