Natural language understanding tasks are key to extracting structured and semantic information from text. One of the most chal- lenging problems in natural language is ambiguity and resolving such ambiguity based on context including temporal information. This paper, focuses on the task of extracting temporal roles from text, e.g. CEO of an organization or head of a country.

In the past years Open Data has become a trend among governments to increase transparency and public engagement by opening up national, regional, and local datasets. However, while many of these datasets come in semi-structured file formats, they use different schemata and lack geo-references or semantically meaningful links and descriptions of the corresponding geo-entities.

Information associated with regulatory compliance is often siloed as legal documentation that is not suitable for querying or reuse. Utilising open standards and technologies to represent and query this information can facilitate interoperability between stakeholders and assist in the task of maintaining as well as demonstrating compliance.

Knowledge graphs are labeled and directed multi-graphs that encode information in the form of entities and relationships. They are gaining attention in different areas of computer science: from the improvement of search engines to the development of virtual personal assistants.

In this paper, we explore the synergy between knowledge graph technologies and computer vision tools for personalisation systems. We propose two image user profiling approaches which map an image to knowledge graph entities representing the interests of a user who appreciates the image. The first one maps an image to entities which correspond to the objects appearing in the image.

The runtime optimization of federated SPARQL query engines is of central importance to ensure the usability of the Web of Data in real-world applications. The efficient selection of sources (SPARQL endpoints in our case) as well as the generation of optimized query plans belong to the most important optimization steps in this respect.

The way how research is communicated using text publications has not changed much over the past decades. We have the vision that ultimately researchers will work on a common structured knowledge base comprising comprehens- ive semantic and machine-comprehensible descriptions of their research, thus making research contributions more transparent and comparable.

Link discovery is central to the integration and use of data across RDF knowledge bases. Geospatial information are increasingly represented according to the Linked Data principles. Resources within such datasets are described by means of vector geometry, where link discovery approaches have to deal with millions of point sets consisting of billions of points.

The proliferation of ontologies and multilingual data available on the Web has motivated many researchers to con- tribute to multilingual and cross-lingual ontology enrichment. Cross-lingual ontology enrichment greatly facilitates ontology learning from multilingual text/ontologies in order to support collaborative ontology engineering process.
