***************************************************************** First Call for Papers 2nd Workshop on the Multilingual Semantic Web, collocated with the 10th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2011) in Bonn, Germany. http://msw2.deri.ie Given the substantial growth of Web users that create and update knowledge all over the world in languages other than English, multilingualism has become an issue of major interest for the Semantic Web community. This process has been accelerated due to initiatives such as the Linked Data project, which encourages not only governments and public institutes to make their data available to the public, but also private organizations in domains such as medicine, geography, music etc. These actors often publish their data sources in their respective languages, and as such, in order to make this information interoperable and accessible to members of other linguistic communities, multilingual knowledge representation, access and translation are an impending need. Given the success of the first edition of this workshop, which was co-located with the 19th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2010), we were encouraged to organize the second version of this series. In this second edition we will have a special focus on:  representation of multilingual information and language resources in Semantic Web and Linked Data formats  cross-lingual discovery and representation of mappings between multilingual Linked Data vocabularies and datasets  cross-lingual querying of knowledge repositories and Linked Data  machine translation and localization strategies for the Semantic Web Further topics of interest include:  standards and best practices for representing multilingual data on the Web  transformation of (multilingual) resources to Semantic Web and Linked Data representations  architectures and infrastructure for a truly multilingual Semantic Web  models for multilingualism in knowledge representation, in particular OWL and RDF(S)  localization of ontologies to multiple languages, incl. label translation, multilingual terms  lexicon models for ontologies  automatic integration of (multilingual) lexicons with ontologies  multilingual and cross-lingual ontology-based information extraction and ontology population  multilingual aspects of semantic search of knowledge repositories  multilingual aspects of ontology verbalization  ontology learning across languages Important Dates August 15th - submission deadline September 5th - notification September 10th - camera-ready deadline October 23th or 24th - workshop Submission will be through the Easy Chair system: https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=msw2. We will accept long papers of at most 12 pages (LNCS), short papers describing preliminary results (max. 6 pages) as well as position papers describing work on progress or planned work (max. 6 pages).
