Subject: IJCAI-01 Workshop on Ontology Learning, Aug 4, 2001, Seattle, WA, USA
Call for Papers: Ontology Learning OL-2001, IJCAI-2001 Workshop
August 4, 2001, Seattle, USA

Comprehensive information to be found at

For the workshop we intend to gather a diverse range of participants
interested in the machine learning of ontologies. In particular, we are
also interested in the maintenance (revision, incrementality) and
integration (from various sources) aspects of learning ontologies.

Topics of interest include, e.g.:
     Text mining for building ontologies
     Learning from machine-readable dictionaries
     Lexical acquisition
     Learning selectional restrictions
     Semi-automatic extending of ontologies (WordNet)
     Multi-relational learning / Inductive Logic Programming
     A-Box Mining
     Learning ontologies with inferences (e.g. using description logics)

     Learning ontologies from the Web (from DTDs, XML, RDF)
     Cooperative learning of ontologies
     Learning translation rules between ontologies
     Reverse Engineering relational schemas to ontologies
