Researchers in Text Mining and researchers active in developing ontological resources provide solutions to preserve semantic information properly, i.e. in ontologies and/or fact databases. Researchers from both fields tend to work independently from each other, but there is a shared interest to profit from ongoing research in the complementary domain. The relatedness of both domains has led to the idea to organize a workshop that brings together members of both research domains.
