Linguistic Linked Open Data is a topic of emerging importance in the field of
natural language processing (NLP). Increasingly, researchers are rendering major
linguistic resources, including annotated corpora, lexicons, databases, and
ontologies, in a format to enable their exploitation in the Semantic Web.
Linking the contents of these resources to each other as well as to common
ontologies can enable access to and discovery of detailed linguistic
information, which would be otherwise impossible, and which could, in turn,
foster a major leap in NLP research and development.

At the same time, the movement toward open data is growing in the field of NLP.
For years, research has been constrained by limited access to corpora, lexicons,
and other language resources due to licensing requirements. Researchers and data
holders alike are now seeking ways to provide open access to these data in order
to promote unfettered use, reuse, and enhancement of common datasets throughout
the field.

EUROLAN 2015 will provide a comprehensive overview of Linguistic Linked Open
Data, including introduction to the formalisms for representing linguistic
resources using Semantic Web technologies such as the Resource Description
Format (RDF) and the Ontology Web Language (OWL), as well as means to extract
knowledge from language resources and exploit it using Semantic Web query
languages and reasoning capabilities.Specific topics treated in the school
include, but are not limited to:

• Introduction to the semantic web, linked data and knowledge graphs
• Extracting and integrating knowledge on the web from text, semi-structured 
  and structured data
• Ontologies and reasoning
• Query systems using SPARQL
• Design of domain specific query languages
• Linguistic annotations as linked data
• Annotation interoperability
• Taxonomy extraction
• BabelNet as linked data
• Lexicographic linked data

Dear Colleagues:

If you are planning to attend the Association for Documentary Editing and Society for Textual Scholarship 2015 Joint Conference, "Convergences and Divergences," in Lincoln, Nebraska, June 17-20, please be aware that the deadline for registration is looming.

Conference attendees need to register and purchase tickets for special meals by June 8. After June 8, banquet and ADE breakfast tickets will no longer be available and the registration fee will increase. To register, please go to http://adests2015.unl.edu/.

Also, the special rate for conference guests at the Embassy Suites in downtown Lincoln (also the site of most of the conference sessions) officially expired on May 24. However, the hotel has graciously agreed to extend the rate to ADE/STS conference guests while rooms remain available.

If you have not yet made a reservation for the hotel, we suggest you do so as soon as possible. To get the discounted rate, though, you'll need to make the reservation by emailing Danielle Hergenrader at danielle.hergenrader at jqh.com<mailto:danielle.hergenrader at jqh.com>. In your email, let Danielle know that you are booking as part of the ADE/STS conference and she will make sure you get the appropriate rate. Danielle works Monday through Friday, 8:00-5:00 p.m. CST. You may want to take this into consideration if you write to her.

It is our understanding that the hotel expects to sell out the nights of the conference due to a major sporting event in Omaha, which may also put pressure on other local area hotels, so we recommend you make reservations immediately if you have not already done so.

We look forward to seeing you in Lincoln in a couple of weeks.
