Meeting Description:

This is a conference for compilers and users of linguistically annotated
corpora. The aim of the workshop is to exchange and propagate research results
with respect to the annotation, conversion and exploitation of corpora taking
into account different applications and theoretical investigations in the field
of language technology and research.

6th International Workshop on
Linguistically Interpreted Corpora (LINC-2005)

http://www.delph-in.net/events/05/linc/

A workshop to be held at IJCNLP05
http://www.afnlp.org/IJCNLP05/

Jeju Island, 15 October 2005

Submission Deadline: June 7, 2005

TOPIC AND MOTIVATION:

Large linguistically interpreted corpora play an increasingly important role for
machine learning, evaluation, psycholinguistics as well as theoretical
linguistics. Many research groups are engaged in the creation of corpus
resources annotated with morphological, syntactic, semantic and discourse
information for a variety of languages. We aim to bring together these
activities in order to identify and disseminate best practice in the development
and utilization of linguistically interpreted corpora.

The aim of the workshop is to exchange and propagate research results with
respect to the annotation, conversion and exploitation of corpora taking into
account different applications and theoretical investigations in the field of
language technology and research. We invite submissions of papers constituting
substantial, original, and unpublished work on all aspects of linguistically
interpreted corpora, including, but not limited to:

- creation of practical annotation schemes
- efficient annotation techniques
- automation of corpus annotation
- tools supporting corpus conversions
- validation including consistency checking of corpora
- browsing corpora and searching for instances of linguistic phenomena
- interpretation of quantitative results
- induction of linguistic competence through machine learning.

As this is the first time the workshop will be held outside Europe, we
particularly welcome work on non-European languages and the problems associated
with them---segmentation, spelling variation, different encodings and so forth.

OntoLex 2005 - Ontologies and Lexical Resources

http://www.ilc.cnr.it/ontolex2005

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 applications.

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

Important Dates

Paper submission deadline: June 10, 2005
Notification of acceptance: July 15, 2005
Camera ready manuscripts due: August 5, 2005
