Omar, all

    this workshop is organized by members of this group, Nathalie 
Aussenac-Gilles in particular among others. The TIA community has been 
working since years on topics such as terminology management and 
extraction, the lexicon-ontology interface, evolution of terminologies 
etc. etc.

Thus, there is a large amount of overlap in topics, people and common 
interest between our CG and the workshop. For this reason, as current 
chairs of the working group, Paul and me have decided to co-organize and 
endorse this workshop. It will provide a nice opportunity and forum to 
discuss important issues related to the
CG face-to-face.

Having said this, I can only encourage everybody to consider sending a 
position paper to the workshop. I am aware of at least three people on 
this list who are planning to attend the workshop. Paul Buitelaar, my 
co-chair, will be also there and will be able to discuss with you the 
goals of the CG etc. etc.

I am not going to be able to make it myself to the workshop as I have 
teaching commitments. But John McCrae from our group will also be there.

I hope this clarifies the relation between the CG and this workshop a bit?

Best regards,

>         Ontologies and lexicons
> During the last ten years, a large range of uses of ontologies, mainly 
> user-interactive applications, access to document content, text 
> analysis or information retrieval, have stressed the strength of the 
> connection between ontologies and natural language. Firstly, textual 
> resources can be used for learning ontologies from text, or at least 
> to guide an interactive analysis of textual content to build 
> ontologies. Secondly, ontology based semantic annotation and search, 
> multilingual access to information, are some of the key features of 
> the Semantic Web. One of the cornerstones then is to define the way in 
> which knowledge models can be connected with their linguistic 
> formulations. In particular, various studies defined representations 
> of the lexical entries that contain information about how ontology 
> elements (classes, properties, individuals etc.) are realized in 
> multiple languages.
> Considered as a knowledge representation, a lexicon gathers the 
> linguistic properties of terms and their syntactic relations, whereas 
> an ontology focus on a conceptual model. So the interface between 
> these two layers is regularly discussed, in particular thanks to the 
> notions of Lexical Ontology and Termino-Ontological Resources (TOR). 
> In both cases, the question is how to articulate knowledge models and 
> their linguistic formulation, which refers to lexical entries and to 
> their insertion in the discourse where they are used. Indeed, the 
> text/lexicon is crucial both when acquiring knowledge and when using it.
>         Relations within TIA, OntoLex workshops and the W3C "ontology
>         and lexica" community group
> In this scope, the OntoLex workshops have been organized. They made it 
> possible to define research issues about the definition of rich and 
> relevant models that can be used both to support linguistic processing 
> based on lexical entities, and to provide an efficient access to 
> knowledge representations. One of the key questions is about the joint 
> representation of linguistic and conceptual information. These 
> question turn out to be "which are the features required to represent 
> lexical and ontological entities? how can these representation schemes 
> be connected?" Possible answers are as diverse as the applications 
> that include these models, the underlying semantic theories or the 
> hypotheses related to the dynamics of meaning and interpretation.
> Following these workshops, the "Ontology Lexica" W3C community group 
> was born this year. Among its goals are not only the development of 
> models for the representation of lexicons (and machine readable 
> dictionaries) relative to ontologies, but also the collection of best 
> practices and experiment feed-back that demonstrate the added-value of 
> such representations. The mission and research focus of the group are

> These research issues about ontologies and a lexicon are very relevant 
> for the TIA conference, that, up to now, has been promoting innovating 
> works in terminology, questioning the positivist view that freezes the 
> representation of meaning and its interpretation. The TIA conference 
> questionned in particular the notion of terminological and ontological 
> ressource (TOR), which is close to representations like ontologies

> scientific and ordinary language. More generally, corpus analysis has 
> weakened some certainties related to term definition, in particular 
> the term-concept tie or the association of "concept" and "signifié".
>         Topics
> The talks to be given during this workshop can deal any of the 
> following issues:
> - presentation of models and representations that combine ontologies 
> with lexical or terminological entities;
> - use-cases that illustrate the added-value of these representations 
> inside software applications;
> - notion of "knowledge rich context" and how it can be taken into 
> account in knowledge representation;
> - ability of these representations to improve linguistic analyses and 
> language processing or access to ontology entities;
> - ability to use these representations to account for polysemy, 
> meaning change over time, or knowledge evolution.
> The above questions do not form a closed list and any other proposal 
> of questions or issues will be examined.
