There is no such thing as simple text

Finding knowledge and information is becoming an almost trivial task on the web. Understanding its value, the credibility and perspective of its source, on the other hand, is becoming increasingly problematic. Technology lags behind when it comes to providing users with proper tools.

In this workshop, we want to study and discuss all aspects of knowledge and information perspective in language, the implications for the representation, access and exploitation of knowledge and information and the impact on individuals and groups in society.

The workshop aims to bring together the best researchers from different disciplines on this topic, among which (computational) linguistics, media studies, social sciences, semantic web, and artificial intelligence, in order to define a roadmap for future research and technological solutions to model information, knowledge and mediated communication from the micro-level up to the macro-level. The workshop also focuses on application aspects of perspective relations by inviting industry, government organizations and journalists to take part in practical hands-on sessions and discussions.
