OntoLex 2008 - The role of ontolex resources in building the
infrastructure of Web 3.0: vision and practice


In Association with

EVALUATION Palais des Congrs Mansour Eddahbi Marrakech (Morocco)

31 May 2008

 The integration of ontologies and lexical resources can be seen as a
new route across which hybrid agents negotiate contents and exchange
linguistic and ontological aspects of knowledge in shared

In this workshop we aim at investigating the role of ontolex resources
across developing ideas and practice of Web 3.0, the connection of Web
2.0 (the Ôsocial webÕ) with the Semantic Web infrastructure of
ontology-based standards and technologies.


The workshop will address the following specific topics of interest:

¥ Integrating multimedia into ontolex resources ¥ Cooperative
construction of ontolex resources ¥ Linguistic interfaces for Semantic
Web applications ¥ Exploiting ontolex resources in social networking ¥
Web-Corpus linguistics for OntoLex Resource building


As well as the following general topics:

¥ Ontology-driven meta-models for multilingual lexica ¥ Evaluation of
ontolex resources in NLP tasks ¥ Evaluation of ontologies for building
ontolex resources ¥ Ontology-driven annotation of corpora for ontology
learning ¥ Design principles for the integrated representation of
lexical and ontological knowledge ¥ Open-source platforms for ontolex


The workshop is addressed to researchers and practitioners from a
variety of backgrounds Ð Semantic Web, AI, Machine Learning, NLP,
Information Retrieval Ð that are concerned with the representation and
use of lexical knowledge in semantic annotation, ontology-based
approaches to information extraction, ontology learning, ontology
matching, etc. Originating in 2000 from a visionary initiative of
Kiryakov and Simov, and ÒhistoricallyÓ hosted by LREC
(2002-2004-2006), OntoLex has recently turned into a yearly workshop
(IJCNLP 2005, ISWC 2007) for a growing interdisciplinary community of
lexicographers, ontologists and computational linguists who recognize
it de facto as their common Ômeeting roomÕ. This years edition aims at
raising the issue of ontolex resources in Web 3.0 to foster the
discussion about next-generation ontolex tools, on the basis of
state-of-the-art technologies and ongoing projects within the LREC
