Call For Papers

1st Workshop on the Multilingual Semantic Web

collocated with the 19th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2010)

Although knowledge processing on the Semantic Web is inherently language-independent, human interaction with semantically structured and linked data will remain inherently language-based as this will be done preferably by use of text or speech input - in many different languages. Semantic Web development will therefore be increasingly concerned with knowledge access to and generation in/from multiple languages, i.e., in:

- multilingual querying of knowledge repositories and linked data
- multilingual knowledge and result presentation in semantic search
- multilingual verbalization of ontology structure in ontology engineering
- ontology-based information extraction from multilingual text and semi-structured data
- ontology learning from multilingual text and semi-structured data

Multilinguality is therefore an emerging challenge to Semantic Web development and to its global acceptance - across language communities around the world. The workshop will therefore be concerned with discussion of new infrastructures, architectures, algorithms etc. that will enable easy adaptation of Semantic Web applications to multiple languages, addressing issues in representation, extraction, integration, presentation etc.

Expected Topics

- models for the integration of linguistic information with ontologies
- architectures and infrastructure for a truly multilingual Semantic Web
- models for multilinguality in knowledge representation, in particular OWL and RDF(S)
- localization of ontologies to multiple languages, incl. label translation, multilingual terms
- adaptation of (multilingual) lexicons to ontologies
- automatic integration of (multilingual) lexicons with ontologies
- multilingual & cross-lingual ontology-based information extraction & ontology population
- multilingual aspects of semantic search & querying of knowledge repositories
- multilinguality and linked data (generation, querying, visualization & presentation)
- multilingual aspects of ontology verbalization
- ontology learning across languages

Important Dates
February 21st - submission deadline
March 19th - notification
April 1st - camera-ready deadline
April 26th or 27th - workshop
