Call For Papers

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Language and Ontologies 2015
Workshop at the 11th International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Description
-----------

With the growing importance of Semantic Web technologies, formal ontologies are increasingly used by people with limited or no background in formal logic, creating a significant interest in natural and easily accessible front ends. In addition, the role of ontologies in computational linguistics is recognised as crucial. Global interest in these topics is witnessed by recent projects such as NeOn (Lifecycle Support for Networked Ontologies), LEGO (Lexicon Enhancement via the GOLD Ontology), SWAT (Semantic Web Authoring Tool), PESCaDO (Personalized Environmental Service Configuration and Delivery Orchestration), CO-ODE, and WhatIf (What if... questions for Ontology Authoring).

This workshop aims to create a forum for the many ways in which research on ontologies and research in computational linguistics relate to each other. It aims at bringing 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.


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.
The deadline for submission is 21st December 2014.

The accepted papers will be part of the conference proceedings and will be published electronically in the ACL Anthology.
