Our CNL paper accepted

We’ve just had a paper accepted for the 4th Controlled Natural Language Workshop in Galway, Ireland in August. The paper describes a user study of people using a new tool for creating and editing OWL ontologies in OWL Simplified English. We asked some OWL experts and non-experts to create a small ontology from knowledge contained in part of a Simple Wikipedia article. The task was very hard because some of the information could not be represented in OWL so that, in addition to figuring out how to represent information, participants also had to be selective in their choice of what to represent.
