 DEADLINE EXTENSION

 4th meeting "Terminology and Artificial Intelligence"
 3-4 May 2001, Nancy, France

DEADLINE 
 Submission due date: January 15, 2001, postponed to January 31, 2001
 Notification date: February 25, 2001
 Camera ready date: March 15, 2001



Due to the availability of ever-increasing amount of information
institutions, companies and laboratories are facing new problems
related in particular to scale effects and the diversity of technical
texts. A full range of tasks, from accessing text corpora to
processing lexical data, is now being entrusted to terminology. As a
result, terminology has to enrich and strengthen its links with
related disciplines, including linguistics, knowledge engineering and
information sciences. Thus, terminological work makes use of
linguistic and /or numeric techniques to process natural language
items (especially terms) and of artificial intelligence techniques for
their formalization.

These techniques share a number of methods and objec tives as well as
a common goal:

 - the same starting point: corpus-based data acquistion;
 - the same objectives: corpus-based domain modeling with or without 
 formalization, depending on the type of application (artificial
 intelligence or not);
 - the same goal: production of terminological resources 
 (machine-readable dictionaries for machine translation, indexing,
 filtering); ontologies, knowledge-based systems, corporate
 memories.

The TIA Conference aims at promoting convergence and synergy among
such disciplines in order to develop and evaluate corpus-processing
methodologies, requiring refined natural language processing and
artificial intelligence techniques. The end results of those
investigations should help build relevant terminological data for
specific applications on a systematic basis.

The 4th TIA Conference will be an opportunity to explore some of the
unsolved problems raised in corpus-based acquisition of terminological
data, in the analysis of lexical behavior in specialized corpora, in
knowledge modeling and formalization of the resulting data.

You are invited to propose a paper in the following topics:

 - Meaning theories and the question of specialized texts;
 - Terminology and ontologies;
 - Exploitation of corpus-based term extraction;
 - Terminology and knowledge modeling / formalization
 - Terminological knowledge bases;
 - Terminological resources for information retrieval;
 - Problems of multilingual terminology;
 - Reusability in linguistics and knowledge engineering
 - Tools and applications.

This TIA Conference, which follows TIA'95 (Villetaneuse), TIA'97
(Toulouse) and TIA'99 (Nantes), is organized by the TIA Working Group
(http://www.biomath.jussieu.fr/TIA/). This group gathers researchers
in linguistics, artificial intelligence and natural language
processing. It was created to allow a confrontation between the
theoretical and methodological frameworks as well as between the
practices developed in each discipline. Submitted papers (in French or
in English) will be reviewed by an international program committee
composed of members of the TIA Working Group and of invited experts.

EXTENSION DE LA DATE LIMITE DE SOUMISSION 


 Quatri�me rencontre " Terminologie et Intelligence Artificielle "
 3-4 mai 2001, Nancy


CALENDRIER

 Date limite de soumission : 15 janvier 2001, report�e au 31 janvier
 Notification aux auteurs : 25 f�vrier 2001
 Date de r�ception des versions d�finitives ; 15 mars 2001


Sous l'effet de l'information en r�seau, institutions, entreprises et
laboratoires se trouvent aujourd'hui confront�s aux probl�mes
consid�rables pos�s par la taille et la diversit� des documents
sp�cialis�s. Acc�der � ces corpus textuels, les filtrer, les traiter,
les stocker, les impl�menter sur des syst�mes informatiques, telles
sont, entre autres, les t�ches auxquelles doit r�pondre la
terminologie. Devant de tels enjeux, la terminologie, en tant que
discipline, doit �tablir des relations coop�ratives avec un ensemble
de disciplines allant de la linguistique � l'ing�nierie des
connaissances en passant par les sciences de l'information.

La pratique terminologique fait notamment appel � des techniques
linguistiques et /ou num�riques pour manipuler les unit�s de la langue
naturelle (en particulier les terminologies) et � des techniques
d'intelligence artificielle pour la formalisation de ces donn�es.

Ces techniques partagent des m�thodes, des objectifs et une m�me
finalit� :

 - m�me point de d�part : elles partent de corpus pour l'acquisition de donn�es linguistiques destin�es � la constitution de
 terminologies ;
 - m�me objectif : la mod�lisation de domaines � partir de corpus, sans formalisation dans le cas d'une production linguistique, avec
 formalisation du domaine dans le cas d'une application requ�rant
 les techniques de l'I.A ;
 - m�me vis�e applicative : ressources terminologiques, dictionnaires �lectroniques pour la traduction automatique, pour l'indexation,
 pour le filtrage, etc., ontologies, syst�mes � base de
 connaissances, m�moires d'entreprise (dans le cadre d'applications
 relevant de l'I.A).

L'objectif de la conf�rence TIA est de faire �merger les
convergences�t les coop�rations possibles entre ces disciplines
pour �laborer �t tester des m�thodes de travail sur corpus,
associ�es � des techniques�e traitement automatique de la langue
et d'intelligence artificielle, afin de constituer, de mani�re
syst�matique, les donn�es terminologiques pertinentes en
fonction des applications.

Les quatri�mes rencontres TIA serviront � explorer les nombreuses
questions rest�es ouvertes en mati�re d'acquisition de connaissances
terminologiques � partir de corpus, d'analyse du fonctionnement
lexicologique en corpus sp�cialis�, de mod�lisation et de
formalisation de ces connaissances, toujours dans le cas
d'applications pr�cises.

Vous �tes invit� � y participer en proposant une communication sur
l'un des th�mes ci-dessous :

 - Th�ories du sens et la question des textes sp�cialis�s
 - Terminologie et ontologies
 - Exploitation de l'extraction de termes en corpus
 - Terminologie et mod�lisation / formalisation des connaissances
 - Bases de connaissances terminologiques
 - Ressources terminologiques pour la recherche d'information
 - Probl�mes de la terminologie multilingue
 - R�utilisabilit� en ing�nierie linguistique et ing�nierie des 
 connaissances
 - Outils et applications

Le Groupe TIA (http://www.biomath.jussieu.fr/TIA/), est organisateur
de cette conf�rence qui fait suite aux conf�rences TIA'95
(Villetaneuse), TIA'97 (Toulouse) et TIA'99 (Nantes). Fond� sous
l'�gide du PRC-IA et de l'AFIA en 1994, � pr�sent groupe AFIA/PRC-I3,
ce groupe rassemble des chercheurs en linguistique, en intelligence
artificielle et en traitement automatique des langues. Il a �t� cr�� pour permettre une confrontation entre les cadres
th�oriques et m�thodologiques ainsi qu'entre les pratiques
d�velopp�es dans chaque discipline.

Les propositions de communications (en anglais ou en fran�ais)
seront soumises � un comit� de programme international constitu�
des y"embres du groupe TIA et d'experts des domaines concern�s.
