Aims and Scope
*	ICPLJ is intended to bring together researchers on the 
cutting edge of Japanese linguistics and to offer a forum in which

those desiring practical applications in the fields of teaching 
Japanese as a second/foreign language and computer-assisted language 
learning (CALL) technology.
*	All topics in linguistics will be fully considered, 
including: phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, lexicon, 
pragmatics (discourse analysis), second language acquisition 
(bilingualism).
*	Abstracts submitted must represent original, unpublished research.

Publication
A book of selected papers presented at the conference will be 
published by Kurosio Publishers, Japan. The publication of the 
papers enables the ideas from the conference to reach an even larger 
audience around the world, further benefiting countless researchers, 
teachers, and their students.

Message 2: The Asian-Pacific Workshop on Terminology (HKTerm 2002)

Date: Fri, 27 Jul 2001 16:04:03 +0800
From: Sze-Wing Tang <sw.tangpolyu.edu.hk>
Subject: The Asian-Pacific Workshop on Terminology (HKTerm 2002)

HKTerm 2002
The Asian-Pacific Workshop on Terminology

Terminology Association of Hong Kong (TAHK)

Hong Kong
29-30 March 2002

Theme of Workshop
HKTerm 2002 is aimed to provide a forum for sharing valuable experiences
from academics, industrialists and government bodies in terminology and its
applications in the Asian-Pacific region. More specifically, the main theme
of this workshop is to raise the awareness of terminology work in education,
research and its applications in IT, translation, and communication. With
the coining of more terms in different disciplines in different regions, how
term definitions and usage could be coordinated more scientifically and
publicized more effectively should be an intriguing and rewarding activity.
We would like to invite all interested parties to take part in this workshop
and help promote the awareness of terminology work in the region.

Topics of interest (as mini tracks) include, but are not limited to:
� Government roles in terminology standardization
� Translation and terminology
� IT and Internet and their impact on Terminology
IT terminology standardization, multilingual and multi-functional
terminological databases, terminology search and information retrieval
through internet, system design and implementations
� In-house terminology development and practice in private sectors
� Harmonization of terminology in different regions
