Call for Papers

Acquiring, Structuring and Evaluating Terminologies (TermAcq 2002)

28th May 2002

Workshop held in conjunction with the LREC 2002 conference
Las Palmas, Canary Islands - Spain
http://www.lrec-conf.org

 ======================================================

Workshop motivation and aims
- ------------------

Among other Language Resources, terminologies play a major role since
large ranges of industrial applications in an IST context require
them.

Until recently, the priority was to make terminological data
describing the main scientific and technological fields available in
sufficient quantities in machine-readable form. Hence, the
quantitative criterion used to prevail over the quality
issues. Understandably, Human Language Technologies had to experience
the complexity of collecting and building monolingual and multilingual
LR before shifting from that earlier priority.

On the other hand, HLT had to build NLP tools mature enough to be
worth integrating in language and knowledge engineering
methods. Research in computational terminology, first focused on term
identification and extraction, is now also concerned with structuring
the lists of terms into terminological networks. Experience in
building LR and the availability of terminological tools makes it
possible to reconsider the whole process of LR building.

These tools have become mature enough to be worth integrating in
language and knowledge engineering methods. Available results now call
for discussion with respect to the question of evaluating resources
and for comparison with results obtained with different approaches.

This half-day session aims at drawing an overall picture of the
results and remaining issues dealing with the whole process of
terminology acquisition and its evaluation.

Discussions will be favored among the participants. This workshop will
provide an opportunity to meet and discuss with various other
"players" in the field.

Topics of interest
- ---------

Technical and theoretical issues to be discussed at the workshop
include, but are not limited to:

* Methods and tools designed to assist terminological work;
* Terminology structuring;
* Monolingual vs. multilingual terminology;
* Corpus-driven multilingual terminology;
* Methodological aspects of evaluation in computational terminology;
* Evaluation of terminological tools results;
* Evaluation of terminological tools as part of a co-operative process;


Important dates
- --------

Deadline for workshop abstract submission
15th of February 2002

Notification of acceptance
8th of March 2002

Final version of paper for workshop proceedings
5th of April 2002

Workshop
28th of May 2002


Submissions
- ------

Papers should be research or position papers connected to the topics
of the workshop. Accepted submissions will give rise to oral
presentation at the workshop. So as to favor the discussion, each
speaker will be asked to answer a set of a few but challenging
questions.

Each submission should show: title; author(s); affiliation(s); and
contact author's e-mail address, postal address, telephone and fax
numbers.

Abstracts (maximum 1,000 words, plain-text format) should be sent to:

Name: Adeline Nazarenko
Email: nazarenkolipn.univ-paris13.fr

Those who wish to attend without offering a paper are asked to briefly
motivate their interest and may send a brief position paper to
contribute to the discussions. These contributions will be appended to
the workshop proceedings.

The final version of the accepted papers should not be longer than
4,000 words or 10 A4 pages. Instructions for formatting and
presentation of the final version will be sent to authors upon
notification of acceptance.
