Successful workshop organized by BIG-member at the www2013

The WoLE 2013 - Web of Linked Entities - workshop was organized by BIG-member Pablo Mendes and co-located with the 22nd International World Wide Web conference in Rio de Janeiro on May 13th, 2013. 

The proposed workshop envisions a Web of Linked Entities (WoLE), which transparently connects the World Wide Web (WWW) and the Giant Global Graph (GGG) using methods from Information Retrieval (IR), Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Database Systems (DB).

Among the issues that were discussed covered, among others, issues such as:

  •  Methods with a special focus on Big Data due to volume (extremely large), variety (extremely heterogeneous) or speed (streaming at a fast pace).
  • Use of NLP techniques to improve knowledge extraction, integration and discovery in the context of the Web of Data.
  • Knowledge extraction/retrieval from text and HTML documents (or other structured and semi-structured documents) on the Web
