[CfP] Extended Deadline: Workshop on Semantic Deep Learning

Dear colleagues, 

Please accept my apologies for potentially receiving this e-mail twice. 

We would like to inform you that upon multiple requests we have decided to extend the submission deadline for the Semantic Deep Learning (SemDeep-17) workshop to 12 March 2017. We are looking forward to your submissions and are happy to answer any questions. 

Kind regards, 
Dagmar Gromann 

Extended Call for Papers for the ESWC Workshop on Semantic Deep Learning (Sem Deep -17) 

*** EXTENDED DEADLINE Friday 12 March 2017 ALL submissions*** 


Semantic Deep Learning aims to bring together Semantic Web and deep learning methods, technologies, and resources. Semantic Web and deep learning research share the goal of creating intelligent artefacts that emulate human capacities, such as reasoning, validating, and predicting. Both fields have been considerably impacting data and knowledge analysis as well as representation. 

Deep learning represents a set of machine learning algorithms that learn data representations by means of transformations with multiple processing layers. This algorithmic set has frequently been applied to feature learning, such as morphological tagging or speaker verification. Semantic Web technologies and knowledge representation boost the re-use and sharing of knowledge in a structured and machine-readable fashion. Semantic resources, such as WikiData or BabelNet, and methods have been successfully applied to semantic data mining. 

Machine learning has been successfully applied to (semi-automated) ontology learning , ontology alignment, ontology annotation, duplicate recognition, and ontology prediction. Ontologies have been repeatedly utilized as input to machine learning tasks and as background knowledge to guide such tasks. Hybrid approaches, such as knowledge graph embeddings, hold the potential of improving the effectiveness of knowledge-related tasks. This workshop offers a platform for discussing such hybrid approaches and for fostering future collaborations between those two fields. 

Workshop Topics: 

Topics of interest for papers, posters, and software demonstrations of original and unpublished work include, but are not limited to: 

- learning and applying knowledge graph embeddings 
- deep learning and Semantic Web technologies for entity disambiguation 
- deep learning technologies for ontology learning 
- embedding-based relation prediction 
- ontology matching and alignment using deep learning 
- word embeddings for learning annotations 
- ontology-based clustering 
- ontology-based classification 
- Deep Structured Semantic Models (DSSM) for the Semantic Web 
- deep learning and semantic data for 
o Machine Translation, 
o Question & Answering, 
o Information Extraction
