*************** Call for Papers ***************

This workshop focuses on the exploitation of Linked Data for Web Scale
Information Extraction (IE), which concerns extracting structured knowledge
from unstructured/semi-structured documents on the Web.

One of the major bottlenecks for the current state of the art in IE is the
availability of learning materials (e.g., seed data, training corpora),
which, typically are manually created and are expensive to build and

Linked Data (LD) defines best practices for exposing, sharing, and
connecting data, information, and knowledge on the Semantic Web using
uniform means such as URIs and RDF.

It has so far been created a gigantic knowledge source of Linked Open Data
(LOD), which constitutes a mine of learning materials for IE.

However, the massive quantity requires efficient learning algorithms and
the unguaranteed quality of data requires robust methods to handle
redundancy and noise.

LD4IE intends to gather researchers and practitioners to address multiple
challenges arising from the usage of LD as learning material for IE tasks,
focusing on (i) modelling user defined extraction tasks using LD; (ii)
gathering learning materials from LD assuring quality (training data
selection, cleaning, feature selection etc.); (ii) robust learning
algorithms for handling LD; (iv) publishing IE results to the LOD cloud.

*************** Research Topics ***************

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


* Modelling Extraction Tasks

** extracting knowledge patterns for task modelling

** user friendly approaches for querying linked data

* Information Extraction

** selecting relevant portions of LOD as training data

** selecting relevant knowledge resources from linked data

** IE methods robust to noise in training data

** Information Extractions tasks/applications exploiting LOD (Wrapper
induction, Table interpretation, IE from unstructured data, Named Entity
Recognition, …)

** Domain specific IE consuming and producing LOD (social data, scholarly
data, health data, ...)

** publishing information extraction results as Linked Data

** linking extracted information to existing LOD datasets

* Linked Data for Learning

** assessing the quality of LOD data for training

** select optimal subset of LOD to seed learning

** managing incompleteness, noise, and uncertainty of LOD

** scalable learning methods

** pattern extraction from LOD
