 TIA 2003

 Submission deadline: December 9, 2002

5th meeting " Terminology and Artificial Intelligence "
31 March - 1 April 2003, Strasbourg, France

Due to the ever-increasing amount of Machine-readable information,
institutions, companies and laboratories are facing new problems
related to scale effects and the diversity of technical texts. A full
range of tasks, from (cross-lingual ) information retrieval to
extraction of structured information from texts, could highly benefit
from the availability of semantically structured terminological
resources, extracted from specialized corpora. As a result, to bring
out innovative solutions, terminology as a disciplin has to enrich and
strengthen its links with related areas, including linguistics and
computational linguistics, knowledge engineering and information

More particularly, the links between the goals and methods of this
pluridisciplinary approach to terminology and knowledge engineering
should be emphasized:
- Intensive use of corpus-based processing methods
- Modeling of technical and scientific domains through
 the analysis of terminological networks identified in corpora
- Definition and elaboration of terminological knowledge that
 could be used to improve major applications, such as
 computer-aided translation, document indexing and filtering, or
 corporate memory management.

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 5th 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.

Topics of Interest
- ----------

You are invited to submit a paper on the following topics:

 - Meaning theories and terminology
 - Exploitation of corpus-based term extraction
 - Methods for automatic terminology structuring
 - Use of terminological resources for building ontologies
 - Terminology and semantic web
 - Terminological resources for information retrieval
 - Problems of multilingual terminology;
 - Reusability and Standardization
 - Terminology and hypertext construction
 - New applications of computer-based terminology

This TIA Conference, which follows TIA'95 (Villetaneuse), TIA'97
(Toulouse), TIA'99 (Nantes), and TIA '01 (Nancy) 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
