Meeting Description:

TOTh 2010
International Conference on Terminology & Ontology: Theories and Applications

Knowledge engineering in general and ontologies in particular have revitalised
terminology, and made it a key element for a great many applications essential
to the digital age. Terminology opens up new perspectives for a broad spectrum
of information processing: for terminology committees, document management,
modelling, language policy, knowledge capitalization, knowledge representation,
translation, the semantic web, etc. But all these new perspectives throw up
fresh questions as to how language and concepts interact in terminology.

Terminology, as an autonomous field of research, has become pluridisciplinary
and draws on linguistics, language for special purposes (LSP), artificial
intelligence and information sciences.

Call for Papers

Target Audience
The TOTh conferences aim to bring together all those involved in LSP,
terminology and knowledge engineering, and more generally all persons interested
in issues related to language and knowledge, be they in research, industry or
other practical applications.

Training session
As from 2010, there will be a training session before the conference proper.
Emphasis for 2010 will be on the reciprocal enrichment of terminology and
ontology (in French).

The conference takes place every year at Annecy (France) on the first Thursday
and Friday of June (3rd and 4th June 2010). A training session is organized the
day before the conference proper (Wednesday 2nd June 2010). In addition to the
academic papers, research by advanced graduate students and industrial
applications figure prominently in the program. A keynote speaker, usually from
another subject field but specializing in issues of language and thought, opens
TOTh conferences.

Conference Topics (non exhaustive list)
Papers will focus both on the linguistic dimension of terminology and knowledge:
- LSPs, language planning (prescription, standardizing), usage, variation,
- glossaries, dictionaries, thesauri and other terminological products,
- multilingualism, translation, corpus processing, particularly alignment,
knowledge extraction,
- constructing and maintaining terminology resources, harmonizing concepts,
harmonizing terms, theories of meaning, what corpora can and cannot contribute,
and on their conceptual dimension:
- terminological principles for constructing concept systems: knowledge
representation, knowledge management, the importance of ontologies (building,
maintaining, aligning, merging),
- input from artificial intelligence, linguistics, epistemology, formal systems
(description logic for example), not forgetting their applications:
- software environments; building and maintaining terminologies, thesauri,
dictionaries, ontologies,
- IT applications based on knowledge and terminology resources: information
systems, specialized digital libraries, document management, information
retrieval, classification, knowledge management, web semantics, collaborative
engineering, etc.
- assessing acquisition and manipulation tools, changing standards in the field
of language and ontology resources.

Deadlines and other important dates
Proposals for papers will be assessed by the international program committee in
view to being presented orally or as a poster. Those papers accepted will be
published in the proceedings as full articles and posters included as short

Deadline for submitting an article: 1st February 2010
