Call for Papers

Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC)

May 29-June 2, 2011, Heraklion, Greece

The mission of the Extended Semantic Web Conference is to bring
together researchers and practitioners dealing with different aspects
of semantic technologies. Following a successful re-launch in 2010 as
a multi-track conference, ESWC 2011 builds on the success of the
former European Semantic Web Conference series, and seeks to extend
its focus by collaborating with other communities and research areas,
in which Web semantics play an important role, within and outside ICT,
and in a truly international, not just ‘European’ context.

* Natural Language Processing Research Track *

Natural language is the main means of communication between humans and
as a result a huge amount of content on the Web is still textual or at
least semi-structured, combining some markup (e.g. in the form of
tags) with unstructured content. Natural language processing and text
mining are therefore crucial building blocks for the semantic analysis
of unstructured and textual data and thus important research areas for
the Semantic Web. Natural language can represent an effective and
intuitive means for querying and accessing semantic data. In this
track we invite research contributions dealing with all aspects of
combining natural language and semantics solving traditional as well
as novel challenges. We invite papers on the following topics:

- Semantic analysis of textual data
- Robust natural language processing for the Web
- Question answering on the Semantic Web/Linked Data
- Natural language generation for the Semantic Web
- Ontology learning and knowledge acquisition from text and other
  unstructured resources
- Information extraction at Web scale
- Opinion mining/Sentiment analysis on the Web
- Approaches to semi-automatic annotation/mark-up/authoring
- Ontology localisation
- Multilinguality and the Semantic Web
- Lexicon-ontology Interface
- Mining social media
- Tacking information diffusion and provenance
- Machine reading
- Knowledge representation, ontologies and reasoning for NLP
