The translation of domain specific languages and multilingual
terminology management Editors: Dr. Rita Temmerman & Dr. Uus Knops

The need for terminology resources has increased due to the
globalisation of scientific, technical and business exchanges and the
development of international communication networks. Thanks to the
WWW, access to existing multilingual terminology sources has become a
reality. Efficient multilingual terminology management can contribute
to better quality translations and more effective communication.

At least three shifts have affected the discipline of terminology over
the last decade: the shift towards computational terminology
management, the linguistic shift in the theory of terminology and the
ontology shift which combines the (semi-) formalised representation of
semantic relationships with terminological management systems.

Taking the perspective of the translator, in this third issue of LA,
New Series, we invite contributions that highlight research in domain
specific languages, in terminology and in translation-oriented
terminography (theme 1); contributions dealing with new developments
in terminology theory and the relationship between the discipline of
terminology and other cognitive disciplines like philosophy of
science, epistemology and semiotics (theme 2), papers on computational
terminology management problems of multilingual terminography (theme
3) and on terminological knowledge bases or ontologies (theme 4).

We welcome papers describing substantial and original
research. Authors will be asked to identify the theme to which their
submission corresponds.

Meeting Description:

Conference on linguistic, foundational, or computational issues
relating to the framework of Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar.


 11th International Conference on
 Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar
 Centre for Computational Linguistics
 Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
 3-6 August 2004

The 11th International Conference on HPSG will take place in Belgium
on 3-6 August 2004, hosted by the Centre for Computational Linguistics
of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. The conference will include a


Abstracts are solicited for 30-minute presentations (followed by 10
minutes discussion) which address linguistic, foundational, or
computational issues relating to the framework of Head-Driven Phrase
Structure Grammar.


to be announced


Semantic formalisms, such as Minimal Recursion Semantics (MRS),
Constraint Language for Lambda Structures (CLLS), and the LFG ''Glue''
Semantics, among others, have been designed to meet the demands of
both theoretical linguistics and natural language processing. The aim
of the workshop is to provide a forum for the discussion of empirical
and formal approaches to semantics and the syntax-semantics interface
in the development of (large-scale) computational grammars.

We solicit abstracts (for 30+10 minute presentations) focusing on:
- the modeling and implementation of aspect, situation types, semantic
argument structure, semantic decomposition, word sense disambiguation,
anaphora resolution, etc.,
- the use of semantic formalisms in grammars for applications such as
machine translation, information extraction, dialogue, etc.,
- the relationship between semantic representation and disambiguation,
- other themes relevant to the role of semantics in grammar


We invite E-MAIL submissions of abstracts for presentations, to
consist of two parts

1) a separate information page in plain text format, containing
 - author name(s)
 - affiliation(s)
 - e-mail and postal address(es)
 - title of paper
 - specification of whether the abstract is intended for the
 main conference or for the workshop 

2) an extended abstract of not more than 5 (five) pages, including all
 figures and references. Abstracts should preferably be in PDF format.

Abstracts, mentioning 'HPSG-04' in the subject line, should be sent to

All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least two reviewers.
Authors are asked to avoid self-references in the abstracts.


Abstract submission deadline: February 15, 2004
Notification of acceptance: April 15, 2004

The results of the conference will be published on-line by CSLI
publications. A call for papers for contributions to the on-line
proceedings will be issued after the conference. On-line proceedings
