Meeting Description:

This workshop aims to examine how specialized lexicons, in particular in biomedicine and beyond English, can be acquired, represented, and linked across languages.

The development of general, multilingual lexicons and dictionaries has
received much interest (see, e.g., projects EuroWordNet or Papillon).
In contrast, less attention has been given to multilingual lexicons
and dictionaries in specialized domains, where the focus has been put
instead on terminological products such as thesauri and
classifications. The need nevertheless exists for large, shared,
multilingual lexicons and dictionaries which support natural language
processing in specialized domains. Medicine, with terminologies
ranging above a million terms, is a case in point: only few
specialized lexicons exist for this domain, English being as usual the
best served. This workshop aims to examine how specialized lexicons,
in particular in biomedicine and beyond English, can be acquired,
represented, and linked across languages.
