Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 08-May-2015 

Meeting Description:

As a result of the preceding workshops, a considerable number of resources is now available in the Linguistic Linked Open Data (LLOD) cloud [1]. LDL-2015 will thus specifically welcome papers addressing the usage aspect of Linked Data and related technologies in NLP, linguistics and neighboring fields, such as Digital Humanities. 

Organized by the interdisciplinary Open Linguistics Working Group (OWLG) [2], the LDL workshop series is open to researchers from a wide range of disciplines, including (computational) linguistics and NLP, but also the Semantic Web, linguistic typology, corpus linguistics, terminology and lexicography. In 2015, we plan to increase the involvement of the LIDER project [3] and the W3C Community Group on Linked Data for Language Technology (LD4LT) [4], to build on their efforts to facilitate the use of linked data and language resources for commercial applications, and to continue the success of LIDER‘s roadmapping workshop series in engagement with enterprise.

2nd Call for Papers:

4th Workshop on Linked Data in Linguistics (LDL-2015): Resources and Applications, collocated with ACL-IJCNLP 2015, Beijing, July 31st, 2015, http://ldl2015.linguistic-lod.org 

Topics of Interest:

We invite presentations of algorithms, methodologies, experiments, use cases, project proposals and position papers regarding the creation, publication or application of linguistic data collections and their linking with other resources, as well as descriptions of such data. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:


- Modelling linguistic data and metadata with OWL and/or RDF.
- Ontologies for linguistic data and metadata collections as well as cross-lingual retrieval.
- Descriptions of data sets following Linked Data principles.
- Legal and social aspects of Linguistic Linked Open Data.
- Best practices for the publication and linking of multilingual knowledge resources.


- Applications of such data, other ontologies or linked data from any subdiscipline of linguistics or NLP.
- The role of (Linguistic) Linked Open Data to address challenges of multilinguality and interoperability.
- Application and applicability of (Linguistic) Linked Open Data for knowledge extraction, machine translation and other NLP tasks.
- NLP contributions to (Linguistic) Linked Open Data.

We invite both long (8 pages and 2 pages of references, formatted according to the ACL-IJCNLP guidelines) and short papers (4 pages and 2 pages of references) representing original research, innovative approaches and resource types, use cases or in-depth discussions. Short papers may also represent project proposals, work in progress or data set descriptions.

Dataset Description Papers:

In addition to full papers and regular short papers, authors may submit short papers with a dataset descriptions describing a resource’s availability, published location and key statistics (such as size). Such papers do not need to show a novel method for the creation or publishing of the data but instead will be judged on the quality, usefulness and clarity of description given in the paper.

Camera-Ready Copy: June 21, 2015
