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

Leipzig, Germany, 12 September 2016

Website: http://pericles-project.eu/events/58

In conjunction with the 12th 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.
