External Event

PlanetData partners, Freie Universität Berlin (FUB), Germany, co-organizes the Workshop on Web of Linked Entities (WoLE2012). The event will be held in conjunction with the 11th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2012) in Boston, US on November 11th - 12th, 2012.

Most of the knowledge available on the Web is encoded in natural language text or Web documents aimed primarily at human consumption. Providing programmatic access to such knowledge is an interesting prospect. This requires information extraction techniques to extract machine readable structures from free text, from which it is possible to retrieve entities and categories. These entities can potentially be linked to each other, creating a global knowledge graph of linked entities.

The WoLE2012 workshop envisions the Web as a Web of Linked Entities (WoLE), which transparently connects the World Wide Web (WWW) and the Giant Global Graph (GGG) using methods from Information Retrieval (IR) and Natural Language Processing (NLP). The focus of this workshop is to bring together the Information Retrieval, Semantic Web and NLP communities. The primary goal is to strengthen research techniques that provide access to textual information published on the Web to further improve the adoption of Semantic Web technology.
