19 September 2017, Workshop on Language, Ontology, Terminology and Knowledge Structures (LOTKS - 2017) , Montpellier, France

Date: Tuesday 19 September 2017
Location: Montpellier, France
Deadline: Monday 10 July 2017

This workshop, held in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS), will bring together two closely related strands of research. On the one hand it will look at the overlap between ontologies and computational linguistics; and on the other the relationship between knowledge modelling and terminologies -- as well as the many points of intersection between these two topics. This workshop aims to create a forum for open discussion that will help to highlight the common areas of interest in the different fields concerned, as well as fostering dialogue between the various different approaches taken by each discipline.


This workshop welcomes contributions from researchers in fields such as linguistics, terminologies, and knowledge engineering, whose work fits in with our topics of interest as well as interested industry professionals. We invite proposals in the form of abstracts of up to 6 pages (up to 4 pages of text +2 pages for references) for short papers, or up to 8 pages (up to 6 pages of text+ 2 pages for references) for long papers. We particularly welcome approaches with a cross-language, cross-domain and/or cross-interdisciplinary scope.
