The “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iași, the Romanian Academy and the Vassar College (USA), in collaboration with the “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu, and under the auspices of the Academy of Technical Sciences of Romania organize the EUROLAN-2015 Summer School on Linguistic Linked Open Data, between 13-25 July in Sibiu.
EUROLAN-2015 will provide a comprehensive overview of Linguistic Linked Open Data, including introduction to the formalisms for representing linguistic resources using Semantic Web technologies such as the Resource Description Format (RDF) and the Ontology Web Language (OWL), as well as means to extract knowledge from language resources and exploit it using Semantic Web query languages and reasoning capabilities.
The school is addressed both to computer scientists and linguists. Specific topics treated in the school include, but are not limited to:
- introduction to the semantic web, linked data and knowledge graphs
- extracting and integrating knowledge on the web from text, semi-structured and structured data
- ontologies and reasoning
- query systems using SPARQL
- design of domain specific query languages
- linguistic annotations as linked data
- annotation interoperability
- taxonomy extraction
- BabelNet as linked data
- lexicographic linked data
Two satellite events are also parts of EUROLAN 2015: the Doctoral Consortium and the RUMOUR-2015 Workshop.
The Doctoral Consortium at EUROLAN-2015 will provide a good opportunity for graduate students (PhD and MSc heading towards PhD studies), investigating topics in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing towards Linguistic Open Data and, more generally, the Semantic Web, to present their current work and receive constructive feedback and guidance on future research, both from the general audience and the invited lecturers at the Summer School. The Doctoral Consortium will be held as a workshop during 3 or 4 consecutive evenings (1.5 hour slots) in the first week of EUROLAN-2015, between 14 and 17 July.
The RUMOUR-2015 Workshop aims to gather innovative approaches for exploitation of social media using Semantic Web technologies and linked data by bringing together research on the Semantic Web, Linked Data, and the Social Sciences. The workshop is addressed to practitioners, researchers, and scholars to share examples, use cases, theories, and analysis of social media and linked data in order to address the intersection among these areas. The proceedings of the RUMOUR workshop will be published by Springer in its series Communications in Computer and Information Science.
