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 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.
