       Natural Language Processing for Metadata Extraction
                          (NLP4ME 2006)
      Workshop to be held on September 12th as part of the
                      AIMSA 2006 Conference
                  Varna, September 13-15, 2006

Workshop Motivation and Aims

In spite of the massive amount of work in the last years in the
area of Semantic Web, the problem of the creation of semantically
annotated electronic content is still one of the main bottlenecks
for the Semantic Web technology. A key technology, which is
employed to overcome this problem is Natural Language Processing,
because most of the content of the web is still textual. Any
support for automatic and semi-automatic extraction, elicitation
of metadata to such content will be of great assistance to the
authors and users of the web content.

The workshop aims at being a forum for researchers to present
their work in the area of semantic annotation, key word
extraction, practical compositional semantics etc. It will
provide an opportunity to present and discuss original methods
for identification of metadata in text, semantic annotation of
text, dealing with multilingual content, interconnecting metadata
with ontologies, etc.

Topics of interest are connected with, but not limited to the
following suggestions:

- standards for metadata
- extraction of metadata from texts
- metadata and ontologies
- extraction of concepts and keyphrases from text
- metadata in a multilingual environment
