FIRST CIRCULAR AND CALL FOR PAPERS

The Institute of English at the University of Silesia is pleased to
invite you to our 16th International Conference on Foreign and Second
Language Acquisition. Traditionally, this conference focuses on
research in foreign language learning. Although all contributions
related to the field are welcome, in the next year's Conference we
would like to pay special attention to broadly understood language
contact and language transfer in SLA.

The event will be held in Szczyrk, a resort town in the Beskid
Mountains of Southern Poland, from 22nd to 24th May 2003. An
all-inclusive conference fee of approximately PLN 500 ($125) will be
collected on arrival at the conference desk.

Paper abstracts should be sent before January 31, 2003 to the
Institute of English. The registration form, including the paper
abstract, may be posted or sent by fax or e-mail. You will be allowed
a 20 minute presentation, followed by 10 minutes for discussion.

For conference-related matters, contact Professor Janusz Arabski, or
Conference Organisers, at the following address, or visit our website.

Message 2: 5th Meeting on Terminology and Artificial Intelligence

Date: Mon, 07 Oct 2002 17:02:03 +0000
From: farid.cerbah <farid.cerbahdassault-aviation.fr>
Subject: 5th Meeting on Terminology and Artificial Intelligence


Farid Cerbah has submitted Call information about the following
conference:
				
Full Title: 5th Meeting on Terminology and Artificial Intelligence
Short Title: TIA 2003
Location: Strasbourg, France
Date: 31-Mar-2003 - 01-Apr-2003
Web Site: http://u2.u-strasbg.fr/spiral/TIA2003
Contact Person: Farid Cerbah
Meeting Email: farid.cerbahdassault-aviation.fr
Meeting Description: 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 sciences.

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.
				
Linguistic Subfield(s): Computational Linguistics
Call Deadline: 09-Dec-2002

				
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 (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.
