Meeting Description:

KESA 2015, The International Workshop on Knowledge Extraction and Semantic Annotation
April 19-24, 2015 - Barcelona, Spain

The critical step in knowledge acquisition is linguistic processing, reasoning, search etc. In recent times research groups have being dealing with various aspects in the area of computational linguistic, machine learning, stochastic and rule-based reasoning. KESA aims at bringing together researchers from various disciplines and industry interested in theories, methods and applications of knowledge extraction and management, data mining and semantic annotation, as well as in recent advances on data and knowledge bases.

The purpose of the workshop is to exchange new ideas and application experiences related to the development of knowledge and information management systems.
