COMPUTERM'02: Second Workshop on Computational Terminology
 Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan
 31 August, 2002

Organisation Committee:

Lee-Feng Chien, Academia Sinica, Taiwan.
Beatrice Daille, IRIN, University of Nantes, France.
Kyo Kageura, National Institute of Informatics, Japan.
Hiroshi Nakagawa, Information Technology Center, The University of
 Tokyo, Japan.

Scope and Background:

COMPUTERM'02: Second Workshop on Computational Terminology invites a
wide range of papers on substantial, original and unpublished research
on all aspects of computational terminology related areas, including,
but not limited to:

Basic computational terminology
 - structuring of terminology, such as construction of terminological
thesaurus, establishing semantic relations, conceptual organisation,
 - bilingual/multilingual terminology alignment/management and
translation extraction
 - terminology extraction
 - terminology resource management Linguistic aspects of terminology
with computational consideration
 - terms and compounding
 - terms and collocations
 - various linguistic aspects of term variations and use

 - domain-dependent IE/NE tasks with reference to terms and
terminology, such as the treatment of Biology or Medical
 - IR/indexing with domain-dependent lexical perspectives
 - encoding terminology-related information and resources
 - document structuring through terminological information, e.g.
making hypertext through terminological links, etc.

Purely linguistic topics with no relation to computational aspects and
purely application topics without any relation to terms and
terminology as linguistic entity (e.g. n-gram based IR) are out of the
scope of the workshop.

COMPUTERM'02 is the second COLING workshop devoted to computational
terminology. The first, very successful, workshop was held at the
occasion of COLING/ACL'98 at Montreal, Canada in 1998. Selected papers
in the first COMPUTERM'98 workshop were published in Recent Advances
in Computational Terminology (John Benjamins).

IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance 2002
		 Sponsored by IEEE
 ICSM-2002, Montreal, Canada, 3-6 October 2002

	 Call for Papers

 Theme: Maintaining distributed heterogeneous systems

ICSM is the major international conference in the field of software
and systems maintenance, evolution, and management. This year's theme
elaborates on last year's theme of "systems and software evolution in
the era of the internet". Standalone legacy applications of yesterday
and novel applications using today's technologies are rapidly becoming
integrated as part of enterprise-wide and industry-wide systems. The
need for rapid integration has led to many distributed heterogeneous
systems that are very challenging to maintain and evolve.

ICSM 2002 will address these new scenarios and the major challenges of
maintenance and evolution. The focus of the conference will be on the
new challenges that heterogeneous systems pose for software
maintenance, and the new opportunities for researchers and
practitioners. A main goal of ICSM is to promote interaction between
researchers and practitioners. ICSM 2002 will bring together
researchers, practitioners, developers and users of tools, technology
transfer experts, and project managers.

Jon Pincus (Microsoft) will describe how Microsoft handles software
enhancements. Other outstanding Keynote speakers are being arranged.
Past conferences have had Parnas, Rombach, McCabe, and Jacobson.

ICSM-2002 will offer technical presentations and demonstrations from
academia and industry. We are particularly interested in exchanging
concepts, prototypes, research ideas, and other results that could
contribute to the academic arena and also benefit business and the
industrial community. ICSM 2002 will be participatory, with working
collaborative sessions and presentations of industry projects. 

The Conference will be held in conjunction with: 

 WESS -- Workshop on Empirical Studies of Software Maintenance.
 SCAM -- Source Code Analysis and Manipulation 
 WSE -- Workshop on WEBsite Evolution

Topics of interest include but are not restricted to the following
aspects of maintenance and evolution:

- Methods and theories	 - Maintenance and/or productivity metrics
- Organizational frameworks	 - Preventive maintenance
- Design for maintenance	 - Tools and environments
- Life cycle and process control - Models/methods for error prediction
- User interface evolution	 - Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS)
- Third party maintenance	 - Freeware and open source applications
- Program comprehension	 - Software and system visualisation
- Knowledge based systems - Measurement of software
- Formal methods - Legal aspects and standards
- Software reusability - Internet and distributed systems
- Empirical studies - Testing and regression testing
- Remote, tele-work - Version and configuration management
- Processes and strategies - Management and organisation
- Co-operative applications - Source code analysis and manipulation
- Processes and strategies - Impact of new software practices
- Programming languages - Reengineering and reverse engineering
- Multimedia systems

RESEARCH PAPERS: Research papers should describe original and
significant work in the research and practice of software maintenance
and evolution. Case studies, empirical research, and experiments are
particularly welcome. We also welcome papers that present leading
edge and novel ideas in maintenance. Papers must not exceed 5000
words (10 pages IEEE style) in length, in English. To encourage
strong submissions a prize will be awarded for the "Best Paper as
Submitted". This Prize is offered by John Wiley & Sons, the publishers
of the Journal of Software Maintenance and Evolution. The Program
Committee will select the winner and a formal presentation of the
Prize will be made in Montreal at ICSM 2002.

FAST TRACK PAPERS: Fast Track papers should describe on-going research
activities, or summarize the experience in software maintenance and
evolution. Papers must not exceed 4 pages, IEEE style, in length, in
English. Accepted fast-track papers will be included in a dedicated
section of the conference proceedings.

DISSERTATION FORUM: We welcome submissions of young researchers that
have delivered their dissertation (Masters or Ph.D.) in the last three
years. An award will be issued for the best submission. Four page
summaries of accepted dissertations will be included in the conference
proceedings and a special forum section will be organised at the

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS: Proposals for presentations of Industrial
Applications are welcome. These can be state-of-the-art descriptions,
experience reports and survey reports from real projects, industrial
practices and models, or tool demonstrations. A dedicated
sub-committee of the program committee will review Industrial
Application proposals and a 1-page summary of accepted proposals will
be included in the conference proceedings.

TUTORIALS: Tutorials should present software maintenance and evolution
topics of interest to practitioners. Tutorials may be full day or
half-day in length.

SUBMISSION STYLE: PDF and/or Postscript electronic submission only.
Papers longer than 15 pages or 6000 words will be returned to the
authors. Acceptance notification will occur July 1, 2002.
