OntoLex07 - From Text to Knowledge: The Lexicon/Ontology Interface

Workshop at ISWC07 – 6th International Semantic Web Conference
November 11th , 2007
Busan, South-Korea

Endorsed By

The Association for Computational Linguistics – Special Interest Group on Computational Semantics

 

ACL SIGSEM

 

The EU Integrated Project NEON on Networked Ontologies

 

The OntoLex workshop series is concerned with the interface between knowledge representation in ontologies and the representation and use of linguistic knowledge as encoded in (multilingual) lexicons. Previous OntoLex workshops were held in Sozopol (2000), Las Palmas (2002), Lisboa (2004), Jeju (2005), Genoa (2006).

The extraction of ontology elements from textual data is a pre-requisite for many Semantic Web applications. Hence the interface between ontologies (describing objects in a domain) and the lexicon (describing the linguistic features of terms that refer to such objects) is becoming increasingly important.

OntoLex Topics of Interest

 

We invite submission of papers on the following topics in this interdisciplinary research area:

The lexicon/ontology interface

o       Design principles for the integrated representation of lexical and ontological knowledge

o       The lexicon/ontology interface in multilingual and cross-cultural aspects of ontologies 

The lexicon in Semantic Web applications

o       The role of (multilingual) lexicons in knowledge markup and ontology population, i.e. in ontology-based information extraction from text

o       Lexical aspects in ontology learning from text, i.e. in (multilingual) term extraction, relation extraction, etc.

o       Lexical approaches to ontology matching, i.e. in the extraction, representation and use of synonyms for mapping between class/property labels

o       Reengineering lexicons as ontologies, e.g. porting wordnets and framenets to the Semantic Web

Ontologies in knowledge-based Natural Language Processing

o       Ontological constraints on lexicon development for knowledge-based NLP

o       Ontologies as resources for NLP-based tasks (question answering, document classification, text mining, expert search, etc.)
