***** Call for Participation ***** RDF/RDFS and OWL in Language Technology: 4th Workshop on NLP and XML (NLPXML-2004) A Workshop in conjunction with ACL'04 in Barcelona, Spain -------------------------------------------------------------------- Workshop date: July 25, 2004 Workshop website: http://www.ling.helsinki.fi/%7Egwilcock/NLPXML-2004/ -------------------------------------------------------------------- To register for the workshop, go to http://www.acl2004.org/ WORKSHOP OVERVIEW: While XML is fully accepted within the NLP community as the main standard for data representation, especially for purposes of interchange and software interoperability, the use of Semantic Web technologies--including RDF (Resource Definition Framework), RDFS (RDF Schema), and OWL (Ontology Web Language)--for NLP applications remains relatively limited. However, the combination of XML, RDF/RDFS and OWL provides an overall architecture for NLP resources of all kinds whose implications are still being worked out within the NLP community. The goal of this workshop is two-fold: (1) to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of practical applications of RDF, RDFS and OWL in language technology (including resource and software development, applications, tools, etc.); and (2) to clarify the respective roles of XML, RDF/RDFS and OWL in NLP applications and resources, in relation to the growth of the Semantic Web. NLPXML-2004 is intended not only for those already using Semantic Web technologies, but also members of the NLP community who seek a fuller understanding of the motivations and implications of XML/RDF/RDFS/OWL, the Semantic Web, and related standards for the field. This workshop will be the fourth in a series, following on from the first NLPXML Workshop held at NLPRS 2001 in Tokyo, the second at COLING 2002 in Taipei, and the third at EACL 2003 in Budapest.
