Natural Language Processing for Metadata Extraction
(NLP4ME 2006)
Workshop to be held on September 12th as part of the
AIMSA 2006 Conference
Varna, September 13-15, 2006

Workshop Motivation and Aims

In spite of the massive amount of work in the last years in the area of Semantic Web, the problem of the creation of semantically annotated electronic content is still one of the main bottlenecks for the Semantic Web technology. A key technology, which is employed to overcome this problem is Natural Language Processing, because most of the content of the web is still textual. Any support for automatic and semi-automatic extraction, elicitation of metadata to such content will be of great assistance to the authors and users of the web content.

The workshop aims at being a forum for researchers to present their work in the area of semantic annotation, key word extraction, practical compositional semantics etc. It will provide an opportunity to present and discuss original methods for identification of metadata in text, semantic annotation of text, dealing with multilingual content, interconnecting metadata with ontologies, etc.

Topics of interest are connected with, but not limited to the following suggestions:

- standards for metadata
- extraction of metadata from texts
- metadata and ontologies
- extraction of concepts and keyphrases from text
- metadata in a multilingual environment

Important dates

Deadline for workshop abstract submission: 20th May 2006
Notification of acceptance: 24th June 2006
Final version of paper: 30th July 2006
