** extended deadline August 5th ** [Please accept our apology for duplicate posting.] Call for papers for OntoLex07 - From Text to Knowledge: The Lexicon/Ontology Interface http://olp.dfki.de/OntoLex07/ Workshop at ISWC07, the 6th International Semantic Web Conference (http://iswc2007.semanticweb.org/) November 11th , 2007 Busan, South-Korea Endorsed by SIGSEM (Association of Computational Linguistics SIG on Computational Semantics http://www.aclweb.org/sigsem) and the NEON project (http://www.neon-project.org/) And in coordination with the ISO Working Group on Language Resource Management (http://www.tc37sc4.org/) 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. We invite submission of papers on the following topics in this interdisciplinary research area: The lexicon/ontology interface * Design principles for the integrated representation of lexical and ontological knowledge * The lexicon/ontology interface in multilingual and cross-cultural aspects of ontologies The lexicon in Semantic Web applications * The role of (multilingual) lexicons in knowledge markup and ontology population, i.e. in ontology-based information extraction from text * Lexical aspects in ontology learning from text, i.e. in (multilingual) term extraction, relation extraction, etc. * Lexical approaches to ontology matching, i.e. in the extraction, representation and use of synonyms for mapping between class/property labels * Reengineering lexicons as ontologies, e.g. porting wordnets and framenets to the Semantic Web Ontologies in knowledge-based Natural Language Processing * Ontological constraints on lexicon development for knowledge-based NLP * Ontologies as resources for NLP-based tasks (question answering, document classification, text mining, expert search, etc.) Important Dates August 5, 2007: Submission Deadline - extended September 1, 2007: Notification October 1, 2007: Camera-ready Version November 11, 2007: Workshop Submission Papers must be in English, not exceed 10 pages and should be formatted in LNCS style (Springer format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science series).
