OntoLex 2008 - The role of ontolex resources in building the infrastructure of Web 3.0: vision and practice

In Association with

LREC2008 - 6th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LANGUAGE RESOURCES AND EVALUATION Palais des Congrès Mansour Eddahbi Marrakech (Morocco)

31 May 2008

The integration of ontologies and lexical resources can be seen as a new route across which hybrid agents negotiate contents and exchange linguistic and ontological aspects of knowledge in shared environments.

In this workshop we aim at investigating the role of ontolex resources across developing ideas and practice of Web 3.0, the connection of Web 2.0 (the ‘social web’) with the Semantic Web infrastructure of ontology-based standards and technologies.

The workshop will address the following specific topics of interest:

• Integrating multimedia into ontolex resources • Cooperative construction of ontolex resources • Linguistic interfaces for Semantic Web applications • Exploiting ontolex resources in social networking • Web-Corpus linguistics for OntoLex Resource building

As well as the following general topics:

• Ontology-driven meta-models for multilingual lexica • Evaluation of ontolex resources in NLP tasks • Evaluation of ontologies for building ontolex resources • Ontology-driven annotation of corpora for ontology learning • Design principles for the integrated representation of lexical and ontological knowledge • Open-source platforms for ontolex resources

The workshop is addressed to researchers and practitioners from a variety of backgrounds – Semantic Web, AI, Machine Learning, NLP, Information Retrieval – that are concerned with the representation and use of lexical knowledge in semantic annotation, ontology-based approaches to information extraction, ontology learning, ontology matching, etc. Originating in 2000 from a visionary initiative of Kiryakov and Simov, and “historically” hosted by LREC (2002-2004-2006), OntoLex has recently turned into a yearly workshop (IJCNLP 2005, ISWC

2007) for a growing interdisciplinary community of lexicographers, ontologists and computational linguists who recognize it de facto as their common ‘meeting room’. This years edition aims at raising the issue of ontolex resources in Web 3.0 to foster the discussion about next-generation ontolex tools, on the basis of state-of-the-art technologies and ongoing projects within the LREC community.
