OntoLex 2005 - Call for Paper

OntoLex 2005 - Ontologies and Lexical Resources

IJCNLP-05 Workshop

October 15, 2005 Jeju Island, South Korea

Background and Goals

The new framework of Information Society fostered the growing of the HLT
area and the project of turning the World Wide Web into a machine
understandable resource to access digital information (the so-called
Semantic Web), posing new challenges for integrated technologies.
Lexicographers, lexical semanticists and ontologists are joining forces to
build innovative systems for integrating ontological knowledge with lexical
and semantic resources. Important examples of this interaction are the
recent works on the conceptual analysis of WordNet, and the wide use of
upper ontologies in innovative international projects like EuroWordNet,
SIMPLE, Balkanet, DWDSnet, etc. OntoLex 2005 will be the fourth workshop on
Ontologies and Lexical Knowledge Bases, following OntoLex 2000, 2002, and
2004. In this workshop we want to discuss the relation between ontological
knowledge and language. A special focus
will be on the role of ontologies in multilingual language processing. This
relation can be investigated from a number of different angles, for example:
- what differences and similarities there are between ontologies and more
traditional lexical resources such as dictionaries and wordnets;
- how ontologies can be extracted from language corpora;
- what role language plays in the definition and mapping of ontologies;
- how to enrich semantic information in wordnets using formal tools;
- how ontologies can be used to treat language in language technology
Ontologies and lexical resources can benefit from each other and converge
into a unified framework where semantics is provided by formally rigorous
ontological and lexical information.

Topics of interests

The workshop is open to any research contribution dealing with the relation
between ontologies and lexicons. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:
- Design principles and methodologies for ontologies and semantic lexical
resources, with a special focus on Asian languages
- Evaluation, comparison, mapping and integration of ontologies and lexical
semantic resources
- The role of ontologies in the development of Inter-Lingual-Index (ILI)
- Applications of ontologies and lexical semantic resources in Information
Retrieval and Information Extraction
- Use of ontologies and lexical resources in Semantic Web applications
- Role of lexical semantic resources in ontology learning
- Ontology-based query expansion techniques
- Ontologies and multi-lingual lexical resources
- Ontologies and lexical resources for meaning negotiation
