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.
