Workshop on Web of Linked Entities (WoLE2012)
http://wole2012.eurecom.fr

In conjunction with the 11th International Semantic Web Conference
(ISWC2012), Boston, 11/12 November 2012

Most of the knowledge available on the Web is encoded in natural
language text or Web documents aimed primarily at human consumption.
Providing programmatic access to such knowledge is an interesting
prospect. This requires information extraction techniques to extract
machine readable structures from free text, from which it is possible to
retrieve entities and categories. These entities can potentially be
linked to each other, creating a global knowledge graph of linked entities.

The WoLE2012 workshop envisions the Web as a Web of Linked Entities
(WoLE), which transparently connects the World Wide Web (WWW) and the
Giant Global Graph (GGG) using methods from Information Retrieval (IR)
and Natural Language Processing (NLP). The focus of this workshop is to

SWAIE 2012: Semantic Web and Information Extraction Paper Deadline (Extended)

2012-08-07
America/Montreal

http://semanticweb.cs.vu.nl/swaie2012/

Full-day workshop in conjunction with EKAW 2012

Submission deadline: August 7, 2012 (extended)

There is a vast wealth of information available in textual format that the Semantic Web cannot yet tap into: 80% of data on the Web and on internal corporate intranets is unstructured, hence analysing and structuring the data – social analytics and next generation analytics – is a large and growing endeavour. The goal of the 1st workshop on Semantic Web and Information Extraction is to bring researchers from the fields of Information Extraction and the Semantic Web together to foster inter-domain collaboration. To make sense of the large amounts of textual data now available, we need help from both the Information Extraction and Semantic Web communities. The Information Extraction community specialises in mining the nuggets of information from text: such techniques could, however, be enhanced by annotated data or domain-specific resources. The Semantic Web community has already taken great strides in making these resources available through the Linked Open Data cloud, which are now ready for uptake by the Information Extraction community. The workshop invites contributions around three particular topics: 1) Semantic Web-driven Information Extraction, 2) Information Extraction for the Semantic Web, and 3) applications and architectures on the intersection of Semantic Web and Information Extraction.

Semantic Computing addresses technologies that facilitate the derivation of semantics from content and connecting semantics into knowledge, where “content” may be anything such as video, audio, text, conversation, process, program, device, behavior, etc.

1st Workshop on Automatic Text Summarization of the Future

1st Workshop on Automatic Text Summarization of the Future

*** Satellite workshop to SEPLN 2012 (Castellón, Spain)***

http://www.taln.upf.edu/pages/sepln_ws_2012/

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Due to the great proliferation of online documents and information, it becomes necessary to develop automatic tools capable of filtering redundant and irrelevant information, thus presenting the most important one in an efficient and effective manner. This is the goal of Automatic Summarization, which aims at producing a concise document, keeping the essential information of a document or set of documents.

CfP: Workshop on Open Data in a Semantic Web Perspective (WODSWP 2012) Paper Deadline [extended]

2012-03-04
America/Montreal

Open Data is the idea that certain data should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions from copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control. Open Data recently, gaining popularity with the rise of the W3C Semantic Web prospective vision.

We would like to invite researchers and actors of the open data movement to present their work to the workshop. This workshop would like to bring together data providers, initiative groups, technology providers, and researchers to facilitate the dissemination of ideas, methods and promote new research perspectives related to the Open Data and the Semantic Web applications.

EACL 2012 Workshop on Semantic Analysis in Social Networks

Europe/Paris

EACL 2012 Workshop on Semantic Analysis in Social Networks
April 23, 2012, Avignon, France

Submission Deadline: Jan 30, 2012

Website: http://www.eecs.uottawa.ca/~diana/eacl2012_social_media_workshop.html

Semantic analysis in social networks (SN) is important for applications such as understanding and enabling social networks, natural language interfaces and human behaviour on the web, e-learning environments, cyber communities and educational or online shared workspaces. These aspects are also important in security, privacy & identity, opinion mining, sentiment analysis, and in the larger area of affective computing.

Recent recognition of Collaboratively Constructed Semantic Resources (CSRs) such
as Wikipedia [1], Wiktionary [2], Linked Open Data [3], and other resources
developed using crowdsourcing such as Games with a Purpose [4] and Mechanical
Turk [5] has substantially contributed to the research in natural language
processing (NLP).

Researchers started to use such resources to substitute for or supplement
conventional lexical semantic resources such as WordNet or linguistically
annotated corpora in different NLP tasks. Another research direction is to
utilize NLP techniques to enhance the collaboration process and its outcome.
