Meeting Description:

Language and Ontologies is a workshop at the 11th International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS), aiming to create a forum for the many ways in which research on ontologies and research in computational linguistics relate to each other. In particular, we want to bring together researchers from different communities, including controlled languages and natural language interfaces as well as ontology languages and linguistic ontologies, in order to identify common interests, exploit synergies, and share methods, tools and resources.

Call for Papers:

Topics of Interest:

- NLP-driven ontology modelling
- Ontology learning and population from text
- Ontology authoring
- Annotation and annotation schemes
- Authoring dialogues
- Psychological studies of errors
- NLP-driven access to ontologies
- Natural language interfaces to ontologies
- Verbalization of ontologies
- Verbalization of query languages
- Ontologies for NLP (e.g. textual entailment, summarisation)
- Ontology-based information retrieval
- Ontologies, folksonomies, and lexicons

Submission Requirements:

Papers should be a mamximum of 6 pages long with an additional page allowed for references. Papers should be electronically submitted in PDF format via EasyChair (to be arranged). Submissions have to be anonymous and follow the IWCS formatting guidelines.
