    RDF/RDFS and OWL in Language Technology: 4th Workshop on NLP and XML

    25 July 2004, Barcelona

    In conjunction with the 42nd annual meeting of the Association for
    Computational Linguistics (http://www.acl2004.org)

    Workshop home page:


    While XML is fully accepted within the NLP community as the main
    standard for data representation, especially for purposes of
    interchange and software interoperability, the use of Semantic Web
    technologies--including RDF (Resource Definition Framework),
    RDFS (RDF Schema), and OWL (Ontology Web Language)--for NLP
    applications remains relatively limited. However, the combination
    of XML, RDF/RDFS and OWL provides an overall architecture for NLP
    resources of all kinds whose implications are still being worked
    out within the NLP community.

    The goal of this workshop is two-fold: (1) to provide a forum for
    presentation and discussion of practical applications of RDF, RDFS
    and OWL in language technology (including resource and software
    development, applications, tools, etc.); and (2) to clarify the
    respective roles of XML, RDF/RDFS and OWL in NLP applications and
    resources, in relation to the growth of the Semantic Web.

    NLPXML-2004 is intended not only for those already using
    Semantic Web technologies, but also members of the NLP community
    who seek a fuller understanding of the motivations and implications
    of XML/RDF/RDFS/OWL, the Semantic Web, and related standards for
    the field. Therefore, we plan to include at least one invited
    presentation that covers in some depth the Semantic Web
    technologies and attempts to identify the interactions among
    various activities (resource creation and annotation, application
    development, etc.) as well as the potential interactions between
    the various Semantic Web layers in relation to language technology.

    This workshop will be the fourth in a series, following on from the
    first NLPXML Workshop held at NLPRS 2001 in Tokyo, the second
    at COLING 2002 in Taipei, and the third at EACL 2003 in Budapest.
