Workshop Description

We describe in this submission our proposal for a fifth edition of the workshop on Semantic Deep Learning (SemDeep-5). As its past editions, this workshop aims at bringing together Semantic Web and Deep Learning research as well as industrial communities. Additionally, the fifth edition of the workshop offers a platform for joining computational linguistics and formal approaches to represent information and knowledge, and so opens the discussion for new and innovative application scenarios for computational linguistics. The workshop will also contribute to widening the appeal of IJCAI to audiences outside of computational linguistic research as it is based on a joint call of structured knowledge and state-of-the-art language processing approaches.

In contrast to previous editions, we intend to join forces with a shared task for SemDeep-5 that will ask for the submission and presentation of practical applications in the domain of evaluating meaning representations. This shared task provides a joint task of semantic structure in the organization of senses and their transformation to embeddings, which are highly useful for word sense disambiguation, entity linking, and semantic search.
