Call for Participation

1st Workshop on the Multilingual Semantic Web
collocated with the 19th Int. World Wide Web Conference (WWW2010)
April 27th, Raleigh Convention Center, Raleigh, North Carolina

-- workshop program now available at http://msw.deri.ie --

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 this will be done 
preferably by use of text or speech input - in many different languages. 
Semantic Web development will therefore be increasingly concerned with 
knowledge access to and generation in/from multiple languages, i.e., in:

- multilingual querying of knowledge repositories and linked data
- multilingual knowledge and result presentation in semantic search
- multilingual verbalization of ontology structure in ontology
engineering
- ontology-based information extraction from multilingual text and
semi-structured data
- ontology learning from multilingual text and semi-structured data

Multilinguality is therefore an emerging challenge to Semantic Web
development and to its global acceptance - across language communities
around the world. The workshop will therefore be concerned with 
discussion of new infrastructures, architectures, algorithms etc. that
will enable easy adaptation of Semantic Web applications to multiple
languages, addressing issues in representation, extraction, integration,
presentation etc.
