Knowledge Graph Generation

Knowledge Graphs are getting traction in both academia and in the industry as one of the key elements of AI applications. They are being recognized as an important and essential resource in many downstream tasks such as question answering, recommendation, personal assistants, business analytics, business automation, etc. Even though there are large knowledge graphs built with crowdsourcing such as Wikidata or using semi-structured data such as DBpedia or Yago or from structured data such as relational databases, building knowledge graphs from text corpora still remains an open challenge.

The workshop welcomes a broad range of papers including full research papers, negative results, position papers, dataset, and system demos examining the wide range of issues and processes related to knowledge graphs generation from text corpora including, but not limited to entity linking, relation extraction, knowledge representation, and Semantic Web. Papers on resources (methods, tools, benchmarks, libraries, datasets) are also welcomed.

One best paper will be selected for a prize with an industrial sponsor.

Why attend the Text2KG Workshop?

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from multiple focus areas such as Natural Language Processing (NLP), Entity Linking (EL), Relation Extraction (RE), Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR), Deep Learning (DL), Knowledge Base Construction (KBC), Semantic Web, Linked Data, and other related fields to foster a discussion and enhance the state-of-the-art in knowledge graph generation from text.
The participants will find opportunities to present and hear about other emerging research and applications, to exchange ideas and experiences, and to identify new opportunities for collaborations across disciplines. We plan to involve the many prominent research groups in the Semantic Web community which in the last years focused on the generation of knowledge graphs from textual sources in different fields, such as research data (ORKG, AI-KG, Nanopublications), question answering (ParaQA, NSQA), common sense (CSKG), automotive (CoSI, ASKG), biomedical (Hetionet), and many others.

Themes & Topics

We are interested in (including but not limited to) the following themes and topics that study the generation of Knowledge Graphs from text,
based on quantitative, qualitative, and mixed research methods.


  • Approaches for generating Knowledge Graphs from text
  • Ontologies for representing provenance/metadata of generated Knowledge Graphs
  • Benchmarks for KG generation from text
  • Evaluation methods for KGs generated from text
  • Industrial applications involving KGs generation from text


  • Entity and relation extraction
  • Entity and relation linking
  • Semantic Parsing
  • Open Information Extraction
  • Deep Learning and Generative approaches
  • Human-in-the-loop methods

Submissions must be original and should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication while being evaluated for this workshop. Submissions will be evaluated by the program committee based on the quality of the work and its fit to the workshop themes. All submissions are double-blind and a high-resolution PDF of the paper should be uploaded to the EasyChair submission site before the paper submission deadline.
The accepted papers will be presented at the Text2KG workshop integrated with the conference, and they will be published as CEUR proceedings..
All must be submitted and formatted in the style of the CEUR proceedings format.
For details on CEUR style, see CEUR's Author Instruction.

TEXT2KG Collocated Event: First International Biochemical Knowledge Extraction Challenge

To date, most of the structured biochemical information available on the Web is manually curated, and it is practically impossible to keep pace with the research being constantly published in scientific articles. Within this challenge, we want to propose a challenge to speed up and promote research on automatic biochemical knowledge extraction mechanisms by the Semantic Web scientific community with the aim of increasing the information available on natural products to promote the development of environmental-friendly products while increasing the community awareness of the biodiversity value.



The first, second, and third best biochemical knowledge extraction methods are going to be awarded as follows:
First Place: EUR 1000
Second Place: EUR 500
Third Place: EUR 250
