Full Title: 3rd Workshop on Linked Data in Linguistics
Short Title: LDL-2014

Date: 27-May-2014 - 27-May-2014
Location: Reykjavik, Iceland
Contact Person: Christian Chiarcos
Meeting Email: < click here to access email >
Web Site: http://ldl2014.org/

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Computational Linguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Call Deadline: 28-Feb-2014

Meeting Description:

The workshop is associated with LREC 2014.

The goal of the workshop is twofold. First, we will assemble researchers from various fields of linguistics, natural language processing, knowledge management and information technology to present and discuss principles, case studies, and best practices for representing, publishing and linking mono- and multilingual linguistic and knowledge data collections, including corpora, grammars, dictionaries, wordnets, translation memories, domain specific ontologies etc. In this sense, we particularly invite contributions discussing the application of the Linked Open Data paradigm to linguistic data as it might provide an important step towards making linguistic data:

i) Easily and uniformly queryable
ii) Interoperable
iii) Sharable over the Web using open standards such as the HTTP protocol and the RDF data model

2nd Call for Datasets:

Linked Data in Linguistics 2014 - Data Challenge
Collocated with LREC 2014
Reykjavik, Iceland, 27th May 2014

This year, there is a data challenge associated to the Linguistic Linked Data Workshop. In addition to regular workshop papers, we will accept dataset description of 4-6 pages describing linguistically or NLP-relevant datasets published on the web as linked data published on the web as linked data. These
linguistic datasets include, but are not limited to, lexica, terminologies, semantic networks, annotated and parallel corpora, multimodal resources, typological resources and linguistic metadata. The data challenge committee will review and evaluate data according to the following criteria, with prizes of up
to €700, funded by the LIDER project, awarded to the highest scoring datasets:

- Use of Linked Data and RDF
- Hosted on a publicly accessible server and be available both during the period of the evaluation and beyond
- Use of an open license

Quality of resource:
- Represents useful linguistically or NLP-relevant information
- Reuses relevant standards and models
- Contains complex, non-trivial information, e.g., multiple levels of annotation

- Links to external resources
- Reuse of existing properties and categories

Impact/usefulness of the resource:
- Relevant and likely to be reused by many researchers in NLP and wider fields
- Uses linked data to improve the quality of and access to the resource

- Represents a type of resource or a community currently underrepresented in (L)LOD cloud activities
- Facilitates novel and unforeseen applications or use cases (as described by the authors) enabled through Linked Data technology

Submission and Publication:

We accept dataset descriptions of 4-6 pages, which include a URL under which the data is available. The papers of the workshop will be published as online proceedings. All submissions can be presented as lightning talks or posters, albeit such a presentation is optional. In addition, we aim for a journal special issue as post-conference proceedings in which a selected amount of papers presented at the workshop will be published. When submitting a dataset description, authors will be asked to provide essential information about resources (in a broad sense, i.e. also technologies, standards, evaluation kits, etc.) that have been used for the work described in the paper or are a new result of your research. Moreover, ELRA encourages all LREC authors to share the described LRs (data, tools, services, etc.), to enable their reuse, replicability of experiments, including evaluation ones, etc. For contact data, stylesheets, up-to-date details on submission and the workshop itself, please consult our website: http://ldl2014.org. Specific details on dataset submissions and the challenge can be found under http://ldl2014.org/challenge.html.


Submission deadline: Friday, February 28, 2014
Notification of acceptance: Friday, March 14, 2014
Camera-ready paper: Friday, March 28, 2014
Workshop: Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Please note that due to synchronization with the main conference, no extensions can be given.
