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.
