Language and Ontologies 2015
Workshop at the 11th International Conference on Computational Semantics 
(IWCS)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


Website: http://langandonto.github.io/


Description
-----------

With the growing importance of Semantic Web technologies, formal 
ontologies are increasingly used by people with limited or no background 
in formal logic, creating a significant interest in natural and easily 
accessible front ends. In addition, the role of ontologies in 
computational linguistics is recognised as crucial. Global interest in 
these topics is witnessed by recent projects such as NeOn (Lifecycle 
Support for Networked Ontologies), LEGO (Lexicon Enhancement via the 
GOLD Ontology), SWAT (Semantic Web Authoring Tool), PESCaDO 
(Personalized Environmental Service Configuration and Delivery 
Orchestration), CO-ODE, and WhatIf (What if... questions for Ontology 
Authoring).

This workshop aims to create a forum for the many ways in which research 
on ontologies and research in computational linguistics relate to each 
other. It aims at bringing together researchers from different 
communities, including controlled languages and natural language 
interfaces as well as ontology languages and linguistic ontologies, in 
order to identify common interests, exploit synergies, and share 
methods, tools and resources.
