Meeting Description: When access to increasingly bigger electronic corpora became possible in the nineties, British and Canadian terminologists in particular began taking an interest in certain linguistic cues pointing to specific terminological information. Manifested in text in predictable, recurring patterns, these linguistic cues are thus suitable for use in approaches to (semi-)automatic information retrieval.

After about two decades, we find it relevant to organize a state-of-the-art discussion relating to this aspect of terminology research. Subjects to be discussed by submissions include:

- State-of-the-art in the field
- Approaches
- Applications
- Domain-specific studies
- Studies on knowledge patterns conducted for different languages
- Other aspects
