Dear all,

The paper submission deadline of the 2nd international workshop 
on Natural Language Interfaces for Web of Data (NLIWoD)
to be collocated with International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) 2015 
is extended to *July 15th, 2015* due to multiple requests. See below for 
the CfP.

Best Regards,
on behalf of Program Committee of NLIWoD 2015

Call for Papers
While the amount of Linked Open Data (LOD) increases rapidly, it is 
still used mostly by Semantic Web experts. Two main obstacles make the 
billions of RDF triples already available hard to access for common Web 
users: the need to learn the query language SPARQL and the need to know 
the schemas underlying the datasets. Approaches to addressing these 
obstacles include graphical query interfaces, agent-based systems, and 
natural language interfaces. This workshop targets advances in the 
creation of natural language interfaces for the Web of Data as this 
category of interfaces is receiving an increasing interest due to their 
high expressive power and the ease of use. For example, recent 
progresses in speech recognition technologies (e.g., Siri, Google Voice) 
demonstrate the usefulness of natural-language interfaces for accessing 
large amounts of (partly structured) data. After the successful first 
edition of the workshop at ISWC 2014 with more than 40 participants, 
NLIWoD 2015’s goal is to bring together experts on the use of 
natural-language interfaces (NLI) for answering questions especially 
over the Web of Data. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Natural language query parsing
- Natural language dialog systems
- Term matching and entity disambiguation
- Indexing
- Query template generation
- Query pattern generation
- SPARQL query generation
- Discovery of Linked Data sources
- Dealing with data and schema heterogeneity
- Answer aggregation
- Answer rendering
- Providing justifications of answers and conveying trust
- Knowledge base design for QA
- Language resources (data & open source software) for QA
- Reasoning for QA
- Natural Language querying of RDF exposed as linked data
- Natural Language querying of Web Services
- User feedback and interaction

Accepted papers will be published via ceur-ws.org <http://ceur-ws.org>.

Submission Instructions
NLIWoD 2015 solicits the submission of original research papers in two 

- Full paper submissions (up to 16 pages) must describe substantial and 
original work.
- Short paper submissions (up to 8 pages) must describe an original work 
which may present
   - a small, focused contribution,
   - a work in progress, or
   - an interesting application case.

All submissions must be in English and in PDF formatted the style of the 
Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science 
(LNCS). For details on the LNCS style, see Springer's Author 
Instructions. All papers are to be submitted via EasyChair at 
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nliwod2015. All submissions 
will be peer-reviewed by the Program Committee of the workshop. 
Submissions do not need to be anonymous.
