of the computation, annotation, and representation of meaning in
natural language, in multimedia objects, or in multimodal
messages. The workshop will be preceded by the 4th meeting of the
ACl-SIGSEM Working Group on the Representation of Multimodal Semantic
Information on 10-11 January 2005. This meeting will be open to IWCS-6
participants.

Working Group on the Representation of Multimodal Semantic Information
will have a joint meeting with the newly formed Thematic Domain Group
om Multimodal Content of the International Standards organisation ISO
(Technical Committee 37, Subcommittee 4 on standards in language
resources). In this meeting members of the ISO Thematic Domain Group
will present initial efforts aimed at identifying interoperable
concepts for semantic representation and annotation in 6 subdomains:
- discourse relations
- dialogue acts
- semantic roles
- basic formal semantic relations
- temporal objects and relations
- referential entities and links.
This joint SIGSEM/ISO meeting will be open to SIGSEM members and to
IWCS-6 participants.
