3rd International Workshop On Computational Terminology 
Short Title: COMPUTERM 2004 

Date: 29-Aug-2004 - 29-Aug-2004
Location: Geneva, Switzerland
Contact: Sophia Ananiadou

Linguistic Sub-field: Computational Linguistics 
Call Deadline: 05-Apr-2004 


Meeting Description:

The aim of this COLING workshop is to bring together NLP researchers
in Terminology and to discuss recent advances in computational
terminology and its impact in many NLP applications. Issues like
standardisation of terminological resources, constructing and updating
domain specific dictionaries and thesauri, systematic terminology
management will be addressed as they are a necessary component of any
NLP system dealing with domain-specific literature.

 3rd International Workshop On Computational Terminology

			A Coling-2004 Workshop

Computational Terminology becomes an increasingly important aspect in
areas such as text mining, information retrieval, information
extraction, summarisation, document management systems,
question-answering systems, ontology building, etc. In text mining,
the acquisition of new knowledge is best captured in terms as they
denote new concepts. Terminological information is paramount to
knowledge mining from texts for scientific discovery and competitive
intelligence. Currently, scientific needs in emerging scientific
domains, such as biomedicine, coupled with the overwhelming amount of
textual data published daily, raised an additional interest to the
usefulness of terminology acquired and managed systematically and
automatically.


Areas of interest
_________________

The 3rd workshop on Computational Terminology invites a range of
papers on substantial, original and unpublished research on areas of
computational terminology such as:

 * Mining terminology (NLP techniques for the acquisition and
 alignment of mono-lingual and multi-lingual terminology)

 * Structuring and managing terminology (term variation, term
 association discovery, term clustering and classification)

 * Terminological integration and update of resources (linking of
 terminological databases, thesauri, ontologies, (semi)-automatic
 update of terminological resources)

 * Applications of terminological information (term oriented IE, IR,
 QA, summarisation etc)

 * Evaluation of terminology


Submission format
_________________

Papers for workshop contributions should not exceed 8 pages (including
references, figures, etc.). Authors should follow the main conference
Coling style format. An additional title page should include the
title, author(s), affiliation(s), contact email address, postal
address, telephone, url (as a separate file as main submissions are
anonymous).

Submissions should be sent via email, using ps or pdf format to:

 S.Ananiadousalford.ac.uk
