9th Workshop on Linked Data in Linguistics (LDL-2024)

Resources, Applications, Best Practices

25 May 2024, Torino, Italy. Co-located with LREC 2024
Submission at https://softconf.com/lrec-coling2024/ldl2024/
Contact: ldl2024@linguistic-lod.org

The Linked Data in Linguistics (LDL) workshop series has established itself as the premier venue for discussing the application of Semantic Web technologies to the fields of linguistics, digital lexicography, and digital humanities (DH).

While recent years have witnessed a steady growth in adoption of the technology in these areas, its uptake in other relevant domains, most notably in the case of natural language processing (NLP), continues to lag behind. This year, aside from embracing the full bandwidth of applications of LLOD technologies and the closely related area of knowledge graphs in linguistics, we welcome contributions addressing the application of LLOD technologies to NLP applications, as well as those dealing with emerging hot topics of future bridges between structured (linguistic) knowledge and neural methods.

In addition, this year's edition of the workshop will be a venue for in-depth discussions on community standards and best practices, and, above all, those related to the work of the W3C community groups OntoLex, LD4LT and BPMLOD. To this end, it will include featured talks on the latest achievements, developments, and perspectives of these W3C Community Groups.

Motivation and Topics of Interest

We invite presentations of algorithms, methodologies, experiments, tools, use cases, descriptions of ongoing or planned research projects as well as position papers that describe the creation, publication or application of linked linguistic data collections and their linking with other resources. Descriptions of such data, and in particular, its uses in research (linguistics, lexicology, digital humanities) and technology (NLP, e-lexicography, localization) are also welcome. More information on topics of interest can be found in the call for papers.

We invite both long (8 pages and 2 pages of references) and short papers (4 pages and 2 pages of references) representing original research, innovative approaches and resource descriptions. Short papers may also represent project descriptions. These do not have to be implemented but discuss to what extent and for which purposes Linguistic Linked Open Data is reused or created. Projects that are still in their early stages and seek advice from the broader Linguistic Linked Data community are welcome, especially if they include underrepresented fields of study.
