Companies worldwide have access to repositories of millions of documents
online via intranets and data-warehouses. These documents are an
invaluable resource of information on customers, competitors and
technical expertise within the company. However because the knowledge is
stored in unstructured text format it is hard to capture, share and
reuse. The combination of Human Language and Semantic Web technologies
presents an opportunity to improve the capabilities of the next
generation of knowledge management tools. This workshop aims to promote
discussion of issues and priorities for the utilisation of language
technologies in knowledge management and for the integration of language
and semantic technologies.

We are looking for innovative approaches, theoretical frameworks, and
practical applications. Position papers and demonstrations are invited
on the following list of topics, but work on related topics is also
welcome:

Multi-lingual systems,
Information Extraction,
Ontology Learning,
Document Indexing, Retrieval and Browsing,
Approaches to Semantic Annotation,
Smart Browsing,
Semantic Search,
Question Answering,
Enterprise Content Management.

The Workshop is taking place as part of the 14th International
Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management (EKAW 2004)
5-8th October 2004 - Whittlebury Hall, Northamptonshire, UK
