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

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
( 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.
