Special Session on: ONTOLOGY and TEXT

Conference: IEA/AIE'06
The Nineteenth International Conference on Industrial, Engineering & Other 
Applications of Applied Intelligent Systems
Annecy (France) - June 27-30, 2006

 From a stricto sensu point of view, there is no direct relationship
between ontology and text. The former is interesting in
conceptualization as an extra linguistic representation of conceptual
knowledge , when the latter is a matter for linguistics. Nevertheless,
ontology and text are more and more connected from the first stages to
the last ones of some ontology-oriented applications. As a matter of
fact, ontology acquisition can rely on text since we use words for
speaking about knowledge, as well as ontology can be used for semantic
annotation of documents. But we have to keep in mind that words of use
and concepts belong to different disciplines: the signified (signifié
Saussure) of a word in a text is not a concept and a lattice of words
linked by linguistic relationships is not necessarily an ontology.

The goal of this special session is to bring together researchers
interested in both ontology (from a theory of knowledge point of view)
and linguistics. The overall focus covers topics such as (articles on
return experience will be highly appreciated): ontology acquisition
from text; methods for structuring knowledge; ontology and
terminology; conceptual or semantic relationships in text; use of
ontologies for acquiring knowledge or semantic relationships in text;
ontology-oriented applications in linguistics (e.g. semantic

Authors are invited to electronically submit their paper, written in
English, of up to 10 single spaced pages.  All paper submissions will
be done electronically, as indicated in the instructions on the
conference web site:

Paper submission is required by November 30, 2005.  All papers must
provide a key word list including one or more of the topics like those
listed above. All papers will be formally peer reviewed.  Notification
