Over the past years there has been a rapid growth in the use and the importance of Knowledge Graphs (KGs) along with their application to many important tasks. KGs are large networks of real-world entities described in terms of their semantic types and their relationships to each other. On the other hand, Deep Learning methods have also become an important area of research, achieving some important breakthrough in various research fields, especially Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Image Recognition.
In order to pursue more advanced methodologies, it has become critical that the communities related to Deep Learning, Knowledge Graphs, and NLP join their forces in order to develop more effective algorithms and applications. This workshop, in the wake of other similar efforts at previous Semantic Web conferences such as ESWC2018 as DL4KGs and ISWC2018, aims to reinforce the relationships between these communities and foster inter-disciplinary research in the areas of KG, Deep Learning, and Natural Language Processing.

Volker Tresp is Distinguished Research Scientist at Siemens Corporate Technology and Professor at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich. He received his Ph.D. degree from Yale University in 1989 and joined Siemens the same year. At Siemens he has been the head of various research teams in machine learning, data analytics and knowledge representation. He filed more than 70 patent applications, published more than 150 scientific articles, and was inventor of the year of Siemens in 1996. The company Panoratio is a spin-off out of his team. At the Ludwig Maximilian University he teaches an annual course on Machine Learning. His research focus in recent years has been “Machine Learning and Deep Learning with Information Networks” for modelling Knowledge Graphs, medical decision processes, perception, and cognitive memory functions.
