** extended deadline August 5th **

Call for papers for OntoLex07 - From Text to Knowledge: The
Lexicon/Ontology Interface

Workshop at ISWC07, the 6th International Semantic Web Conference
November 11th , 2007
Busan, South-Korea

Endorsed by SIGSEM (Association of Computational Linguistics SIG on
Computational Semantics and the NEON
project (
And in coordination with the ISO Working Group on Language Resource
Management (

The OntoLex workshop series is concerned with the interface between
knowledge representation in ontologies and the representation and use of
linguistic knowledge as encoded in (multilingual) lexicons. Previous
OntoLex workshops were held in Sozopol (2000), Las Palmas (2002), Lisboa
(2004), Jeju (2005), Genoa (2006). The extraction of ontology elements
from textual data is a pre-requisite for many Semantic Web applications.
Hence the interface between ontologies (describing objects in a domain)
and the lexicon (describing the linguistic features of terms that refer
to such objects) is becoming increasingly important. We invite
submission of papers on the following topics in this interdisciplinary
research area:

The lexicon/ontology interface
* Design principles for the integrated representation of lexical and
ontological knowledge
* The lexicon/ontology interface in multilingual and cross-cultural
aspects of ontologies

The lexicon in Semantic Web applications
* The role of (multilingual) lexicons in knowledge markup and ontology
population, i.e. in ontology-based information extraction from text
* Lexical aspects in ontology learning from text, i.e. in (multilingual)
term extraction, relation extraction, etc.
* Lexical approaches to ontology matching, i.e. in the extraction,
representation and use of synonyms for mapping between class/property
* Reengineering lexicons as ontologies, e.g. porting wordnets and
framenets to the Semantic Web

Ontologies in knowledge-based Natural Language Processing
* Ontological constraints on lexicon development for knowledge-based NLP
* Ontologies as resources for NLP-based tasks (question answering,
document classification, text mining, expert search, etc.)
