Fifth Joint ISO-ACL/SIGSEM Workshop on

Interoperable Semantic Annotation ISA-5

Hong Kong, January 15-17, 2010

in conjunction with ICGL 10,

the International Conference on Global Interoperability

for Language Resources, January 18-20

ISA-5 is the fifth edition of a series of joint workshops of the ACL SIGSEM
Working Group "The Representation of Multimodal Semantic Information"
(see and ISO TC 37/SC 4
(Language Resources) WG 2: Annotation and representation schemes.

This workshop aims to bring together experts from ongoing and recent
projects concerned with the annotation or representation of linguistic
and multimodal semantic information, and its relation to the analysis,
interpretation and generation of text, speech, and multimodal communicative

The main focus of the workshop will be on approaches, experiences,
experiments, problems, and proposals concerning the construction or
application of interoperable semantically annotated linguistic resources,
including (but not limited to) the following topics:

* methodological aspects of semantic annotation
* experiments in or with semantic annotation
* semantic annotation and semantic interpretation
* semantic annotation, ontologies, and inferencing
* the semantics of semantic annotations
* issues in semantic annotation in specific domains:
* temporal entities and relations
* spatial entities and relations
* events
* communicative functions
* semantic roles and predicate-argument structures
* discourse relations
* modification and quantification
* ...
* integration of annotations across domains
* best practices in semantic annotation
* semantic annotation project reports
* reports and comments on recent, current, and planned ISO projects
on developing semantic annotation standards:

* project 24617-1 Semantic Annotation Framework, Part 1: Time and events
* project 24617-2 Semantic Annotation Framework, Part 2: Dialogue acts
* project 24617-3 Semantic Annotation Framework, Part 3: Named entities
(to start soon)
* ISO-Space (in preparation)
* ISO-Semantic roles (in preparation)

Two types of papers can be submitted:

* long papers, maxmimally 8 pages
* short papers, maximally 4 pages

Members of the project teams or advisory boards of the ISO projects
24617-1 and 24617-2 also have the possibility to submit commentaries
of maximally 2 pages on the most recent versions of the documents
describing these projects.

All submissions should be in the ACL format - see

* Submission deadline for long papers: 15 October
* Submission deadline for short papers: 5 November
* Submission deadline for commentaries: 25 November
* Notification of paper acceptance: 15 November
* Camera-ready papers due: 1 December
