Ontologies play an important role in a variety of text technological 
applications. Due to the fact that hand-crafted ontologies are tedious 
to develop, automatic generation, dynamic adaptations, and learning of 
ontologies are desirable. The type of knowledge that is available for 
solving these tasks is often restricted to syntactic information. The 
workshop addresses and focuses on the question of how it is possible to 
extract semantic knowledge for ontology design by structurally given 
information. Examples of applications are (but are not limited to) 
knowledge acquisition from the semantic web, aspects of hypertexts, 
expert systems, document management, and discourse processing.

Submission procedure:
Extended Abstracts should be between 3 and max. 6 pages of length 
(including figures, tables, and references), single-spaced Springer LNCS 
style pages. Only electronic submissions will be considered (formats: 
PostScript, PDF) sent to kkuehnbe at uos.de. Based on accepted extended 
abstracts authors will be asked to submit full papers (after the 
conference took place) that will be published as a special issue in 
"GLDV-Journal for Computational Linguistics and Language Technology".
