Description

With the increasing importance of Semantic Web technologies, formal ontologies are increasingly used by people with limited or no background in formal logic, creating a growing 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 therefore 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.
