*1st Int. Workshop on “Semantic Change & Evolving Semantics - SuCCESS’16"*

Leipzig, Germany, 12 September 2016


Website: http://2016.semantics.cc/success16

In conjunction with the 12^th  International Conference on Semantic 
Systems – SEMANTiCS 2016 <http://2016.semantics.cc/>

The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the digital library 
of the ACM ICP Series.

*Workshop objectives*

This half-day workshop aims at exploring emerging research in the areas 
of semantic change and evolving semantics. Semantics differ across 
contexts, domains, communities and time. This has implications for 
communication, terminology, access to and exchange of information, 
problem-solving and construction of knowledge. Where there is 
interaction and feedback, this effect is mitigated, as it is possible to 
settle on a shared understanding; in contrast, the effect is 
particularly pronounced in asynchronous and static information. This 
problem is shared across many domains; some examples of areas in which 
the effect is particularly pronounced include cultural heritage, data 
curation, digital preservation, and knowledge management. One practical 
example is the need to respond to semantic change in ontology curation 
and engineering; another is the capture and treatment of context in 
search indexing and ranking. In this workshop we will focus on semantic 
change in these domains and closely aligned areas. As such, we expect 
the workshop to be of interest to researchers with an interest in 
combining techniques to address evolving semantics. We are therefore 
seeking expressions of interest in the workshop intended to explore this 
area and to collect together a series of perspectives on the theory and 
relevance of semantic change across contexts and disciplines.

*Call for Papers and Posters*

Topics on which potential participants are invited to share research, 
experimentation, demonstrations, concepts and ideas include, but are not 
limited to:

  * Semantic change and evolving semantics;
  * Cultural drift;
  * Methods for the detection, interpretation and communication of drift
  * Response to change: strategies for ontology adaptation and
    evolution; potential for the application of machine learning approaches;
  * Role of social media in accelerating semantic change and use of
    social media data to study it.
