2nd Workshop on Linked Data in Linguistics: Representing and linking lexicons, terminologies and other language data

2nd Workshop on Linked Data in Linguistics (LDL-2013): Representing and linking lexicons, terminologies and other language data

Collocated with the Conference on Generative Approaches to the Lexicon, September 23rd in Pisa, Italy

The explosion of information technology has led to a substantial growth in quantity, diversity and complexity of linguistic data accessible over the internet. The lack of interoperability between linguistic and language resources represents a major challenge that needs to be addressed, in particular, if information from different sources is to be combined, like, say, machine-readable lexicons, corpus data and terminology repositories. For these types of resources, domain-specific standards have been proposed, yet, issues of interoperability between different types of resources persist, commonly accepted strategies to distribute, access and integrate their information have yet to be established, and technologies and infrastructures to address both aspects are still under development.

The goal of the workshop is:

  1. To assemble researchers from various fields of linguistics, natural language processing, and information technology
  2. Present and discuss principles, case studies, and best practices for representing, publishing and linking linguistic data collections
  3. Discuss infrastructure for corpora, dictionaries, lexical nets, translation memories, thesauri, etc.,
  4. Examine policies for the publication and distribution of linguistic data
