A full-day workshop at RANLP 2013

**NEWS: Proceedings of the conference are now available at  http://aclweb.org/anthology//W/W13/#5200  **

The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers from the fields of Information Extraction and the Semantic Web together to foster inter-domain collaboration. There is a vast wealth of information available in textual format that the Semantic Web cannot yet tap into: 80% of data on the Web and on internal corporate intranets is unstructured, hence analysing and structuring the data – social analytics and next generation analytics – is a large and growing endeavour#. Here, the Information Extraction community could help as they specialise in mining the nuggets of information from text. Information Extraction techniques could be enhanced by annotated data or domain-specific resources. The Semantic Web community has taken great strides in making these resources available through the Linked Open Data cloud, which are now ready for uptake by the Information Extraction community.

Following the success of the 1st SWAIE workshop at EKAW 2012, we are turning our attention towards fostering awareness of how Semantic Web technologies can benefit the traditional IE community.  We invite contributions around three particular topics: 1) Semantic Web-driven Information Extraction, 2) Information Extraction for the Semantic Web, and 3) applications and architectures on the intersection of Semantic Web and Information Extraction.
