2nd CFP / extended deadline - 3rd Workshop on the Multilingual Semantic Web


2nd Call for Papers

!!! deadline extended to August 5 2012 !!!

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
