Meeting Description:

The mission of the Extended Semantic Web Conference is to bring together
researchers and practitioners dealing with different aspects of semantic
technologies. Following a successful re-launch in 2010 as a multi-track
conference, ESWC 2011 builds on the success of the former European
Semantic Web Conference series, and seeks to extend its focus by
collaborating with other communities and research areas, in which Web
semantics play an important role, within and outside ICT, and in a truly
international, not just 'European' context.

Call For Papers

Natural language is the main means of communication between humans
and as a result a huge amount of content on the Web is still textual or at
least semi-structured, combining some markup (e.g. in the form of tags) with
unstructured content. Natural language processing and text mining are
therefore crucial building blocks for the semantic analysis of unstructured
and textual data and thus important research areas for the Semantic Web.
Natural language can represent an effective and intuitive means for
querying and accessing semantic data. In this track we invite research
contributions dealing with all aspects of combining natural language and
semantics solving traditional as well as novel challenges. We invite papers
on the following topics:

-Semantic analysis of textual data
-Robust natural language processing for the Web
-Question answering on the Semantic Web/Linked Data
-Natural language generation for the Semantic Web
-Ontology learning and knowledge acquisition from text and other
unstructured resources
-Information extraction at Web scale
-Opinion mining/Sentiment analysis on the Web
-Approaches to semi-automatic annotation/mark-up/authoring
-Ontology localisation
-Multilinguality and the Semantic Web
-Lexicon-ontology Interface
-Mining social media
-Tacking information diffusion and provenance
-Machine reading
-Knowledge representation, ontologies and reasoning for NLP
