Workshop on Linked Data in Linguistics (LDL-2012)
The Open Linguistics Working Group is organizing a workshop on Linked Data in Linguistics, March 7 – 9, 2012, Frankfurt/Main, Germany, as part of the 34th Annual Meeting of German Linguistics Society (DGfS).
The explosion of information technology has led to a substantial growth in quantity, diversity and complexity of web-accessible linguistic data. These resources become even more useful when linked. This workshop will present principles, use cases, and best practices for using the linked data paradigm to represent, exploit, store, and connect different types of linguistic data collections.
We are glad to welcome researchers from the fields of language documentation, typology, computational linguistics, corpus linguistics, as well as researchers from other empirically-oriented disciplines of linguistics who share an interest in data and metadata modelling with Semantic Web technologies such as RDF or OWL.
Aside from numerous presentations from such diverse fields of linguistics, information technology and neighboring disciplines, we are happy to announce two invited speakers, Nancy Ide (Vassar College), and Martin Haspelmath (Max-Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig).
We’re very much looking forward to welcome you in Frankfurt. For anyone who cannot attend we made the proceedings available online.
Please see the LDL-2012 website for detailed information on program, venue, and registration. The workshop will have both online proceedings and a printed companion volume. The online proceedings are available from the Workshop page.
