CNL 2009 Workshop on Controlled Natural Languages

http://attempto.ifi.uzh.ch/site/cnl2009/

Workshop date: 8-10 June 2009

Submission deadline: 14 November 2008
*********************************************************************

Controlled natural languages (CNLs) are subsets of natural languages,
obtained by restricting the grammar and vocabulary in order to reduce
or eliminate ambiguity and complexity. Traditionally, controlled
languages fall into two major types: those that improve readability
for human readers, and those that enable reliable automatic semantic
analysis of the language. [...] The second type of languages has a
formal logical basis, i.e. they have a formal syntax and semantics,
and can be mapped to an existing formal language, such as first-order
logic. Thus, those languages can be used as knowledge representation
languages, and writing of those languages is supported by fully
automatic consistency and redundancy checks, query answering, etc.
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Controlled_natural_language)

Various controlled natural languages of the second type have been
developed by a number of organisations, and have been used in many
different application domains, most recently within the semantic web.

This workshop is dedicated to discussing the similarities and
differences of existing controlled natural languages of the second
type, possible improvements to these languages, relations to other
knowledge representation languages, tool support, existing and future
applications, and further topics of interest.
