2nd Call for Papers: 5th Workshop on Linked Data in Linguistics 
(LDL-2016): Managing, Building and Using Linked Language Resources

Portorož, Slovenia, 24th May 2016. Co-located with LREC 2016


Publishing language resources under open licenses and linking them 
together has been an area of increasing interest in academic circles, 
including applied linguistics, lexicography, natural language processing 
and information technology. It facilitates the exchange of knowledge and 
information across boundaries between disciplines as well as between 
academia and the IT business. By collocating the 5th edition of the 
workshop series with LREC, we encourage this interdisciplinary community 
to present and to discuss use cases, experiences, best practices, 
recommendations and technologies among each other and in interaction 
with the language resource community. 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.
While it has been shown that Linked Data has significant value for the 
management of language resources in the Web, the practice is still far 
from being an accepted standard in the community. Thus, it is important 
that we continue to push the development and adoption of Linked Data 
technologies among creators of language resources. In particular, Linked 
Data’s ability to increase the quality, interoperability and 
availability of data on the Web has lead us to focus on managing, 
improving and using language resources on the Web as a key focus for 
this year’s workshop.

We invite presentations of algorithms, methodologies, experiments, use 
cases, project proposals and position papers regarding the creation, 
publication or application of linguistic data collections and their 
linking with other resources, as well as descriptions of such data. This 
includes, but is not limited to, the following:

* Building linked language resources
** Novel vocabularies for describing linguistic objects using RDF.
** Metrics and methodologies to develop linked language resources on the 
** Natural language processing methods to enhance Linked Open Data.

* Managing linked language resources
** Creating, maintaining and accessing language resource infrastructures 
based on Linked Data.
** Metadata linking and curation for language resources on the Web.
** Best practices for publication and linking of multilingual knowledge 

* Using linked language resources
** Application of Linked Open Data for linguistics, digital humanities 
and natural language processing.
** Addressing challenges of scalability, multilinguality and 
interoperability in the Web.
** Legal, social and scientific aspects of Linguistic Linked Open Data.

We invite both long (8 pages and 2 pages of references, formatted 
according to the LREC guidelines) and short papers (4 pages and 2 pages 
of references) representing original research, innovative approaches and 
resource types, use cases or in-depth discussions. Short papers may also 
represent project proposals, work in progress or data set descriptions. 
Papers will be published as part of the LREC workshop proceedings and 
presented as oral or poster presentations, as appropriate.

We encourage submission of datasets and ask that these resources are 
included in the LLOD cloud. As such we require that datasets are 
described in Datahub with sufficient metadata to be added to the cloud. 
In addition, as part of the LREC conference your resource will be 
described in the LRE Map and assigned an International Standard Language 
Resource Number (ISLRN, www.islrn.org), a Persistent Unique Identifier 
to be assigned to each Language Resource.
