Linguistic Linked Open Data

Linguistic Linked Open Data (LLOD) is a method for creating, sharing, and (re-)using language resources on the Web, and has increasing importance for the fields of language technology and natural language processing (NLP). Increasingly, researchers are rendering major linguistic resources, including annotated corpora, lexicons, databases, and ontologies, in LLOD-compliant formats that enable their exploitation in the Semantic Web. The goal of the 15th EUROLAN School is to bring together specialists, professors, and students in relevant disciplines as linguistics, natural language processing, and information technology to discuss principles and best practices for representing, publishing and linking linguistic data collections. Tutorials and hands-on practical sessions will provide a comprehensive introduction to the formalisms for representing linguistic resources using Semantic Web technologies 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:
    • Semantic Web and linked data
    • Ontologies (RDF, OWL, RDF-S, etc.)
    • Query mechanisms (SPARQL)
    • Metadata (DCAT, VOID, etc.)
    • RDF transformation and validation
    • Linguistic linked data
    • Lemon-Ontolex
    • Linguistic linked data generation
    • Corpora and linked data
    • Linguistic annotations
    • Tools and applications of linguistic linked data
