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.
The workshop will take place one day before the main conference
(14th April 2015) at
Queen Mary University of London. It is free for the main
conference attendees but a registration for the workshop only
is also possible. We expect the fees to be around £55 for early
bird registrations (mid March) and about £75 afterwards.
