[protege-owl] Call for Papers: WWW 2010 Workshop on The Multilingual Semantic Web

Apologies for multiple postings


1st Workshop on the Multilingual Semantic Web
collocated with the 19th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2010)

Although knowledge processing on the Semantic Web is inherently 
language-independent, human interaction with semantically structured and 
linked data will remain inherently language-based as this will be done 
preferably by use of text or speech input - in many different languages. 
Semantic Web development will therefore be increasingly concerned with 
knowledge access to and generation in/from multiple languages, i.e., in:

- multilingual querying of knowledge repositories and linked data
- multilingual knowledge and result presentation in semantic search
- multilingual verbalization of ontology structure in ontology engineering
- ontology-based information extraction from multilingual text and 
semi-structured data
- ontology learning from multilingual text and semi-structured data

Multilinguality is therefore an emerging challenge to Semantic Web 
development and to its global acceptance - across language communities 
around the world. The workshop will therefore be concerned with 
discussion of new infrastructures, architectures, algorithms etc. that 
will enable easy adaptation of Semantic Web applications to multiple 
languages, addressing issues in representation, extraction, integration, 
presentation etc.

Expected Topics

- models for the integration of linguistic information with ontologies
- architectures and infrastructure for a truly multilingual Semantic Web
- models for multilinguality in knowledge representation, in particular 
OWL and RDF(S)
- localization of ontologies to multiple languages, incl. label 
translation, multilingual terms
- adaptation of (multilingual) lexicons to ontologies
- automatic integration of (multilingual) lexicons with ontologies
- multilingual & cross-lingual ontology-based information extraction & 
ontology population
- multilingual aspects of semantic search & querying of knowledge 
- multilinguality and linked data (generation, querying, visualization & 
- multilingual aspects of ontology verbalization
- ontology learning across languages
