Call for Participation in Linked Data for Language Technology Community Group

The Linked Data for Language Technology Community Group has been launched:

This group aims to consult with current and potential users of lingusitic data to assemble user cases and requirements for Language Technology Applications that use Linked Data. The results will be used to guide future interoperability, research and development activities spanning the language technology and linked data domains, including via the OntoLex and BP-MLOD community groups.

Potential users are companies and public bodies involved in content management, the language services and localisation industry and other applications of content analytics techniques used in search, recommender systems, sentiment analysis and terminology management.

The group will engage with users through surveys and international road-mapping events organised by an EU-funded R&D consortium called LIDER. Contributions can be provided openly through engagement with the Community Group or anonymously if preferred. The anonymised outcomes of this exercise, in terms of use case and requirements priorities, technology gaps and interoperability roadblocks will be made publicly available via this community group by May 2014.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2013-12-09 by David Lewis. The following people supported its creation: David Lewis, Jorge Gracia, John McCrae, Felix Sasaki, Christina Unger, Roberto Navigli, Maud Ehrmann, Asunción Gómez Pérez, Daniel Vila, Víctor Rodríguez-Doncel, Elena Montiel Ponsoda, Dominic Jones. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of its activities.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
