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

Call Deadline: 07-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

Call for Papers:

Linguistic Linked Data Challenge

There is a data challenge associated to the Linguistic Linked Data Workshop. Details of the challenge will be announced in a separate call for contributions, see http://ldl2014.org/challenge.html for up-to-date information.

Topics of Interest:

We invite contributions related (but not limited) to the following topics:

1. Use cases and project proposals for the creation, publication or application of linguistic data collections that are linked with other resources
2. Modelling linguistic data and metadata with OWL and/or RDF
3. Ontologies for linguistic data and metadata collections as well as cross-lingual retrieval
4. Descriptions of data sets following Linked Data principles
5. Applications of such data, other ontologies or linked data from any subdiscipline of linguistics (may include work in progress or project descriptions)
6. Application and applicability of (Linguistic) Linked Open Data in NLP
7. NLP contributions to (Linguistic) Linked Open Data
8. Challenges of multilinguality and the use of LOD and collaboratively constructed open resources for knowledge extraction, machine translation and other NLP tasks
9. Legal and social aspects of Linguistic Linked Open Data
10. Best practices for the publication and linking of multilingual knowledge resources

Submission & Publication:

We accept submission of both long (up to 8 pages) and short papers (up to 4 pages) to be presented as long or short oral presentation at the workshop. The papers of the workshop will be published as online proceedings. 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.
