Meeting Description:

CLARA researcher training course on integration of terminological language
resources across domains and languages

The Department of Professional and Intercultural Communication at NHH will host
a one-week PhD training course on methods and technologies for consolidating and
integrating terminological resources across domains and languages.

Confirmed Speakers:

- Rita Temmerman, CVC, Erasmushogeschool Brussel (NL)
- Stefan Geissler, Temis (DE)
- Bodil Nistrup Madsen, Copenhagen Business School (DK)
- Andrejs Vasi?jevs, Tilde (LV)
- Bolette Sandford Pedersen, CST (DK)
- Kara Warburton, ISO TC37 (CA)
- Henrik Nilsson, TNC (SE)
- Marita Kristiansen, NHH (NO)

Aim and Focus:

The research training course aims to address theoretical, methodological,
technological and linguistic issues relevant for state-of-the-art terminology
work, including multilingual perspectives, terminological variation,
corpus-based term extraction and ontology-based domain recognition. There is a
special focus on the consolidation and integration of existing terminological
language resources. This is particularly relevant in light of coordinated
efforts such as the EuroTermBank and CLARIN, but various other initiatives and
projects will also be discussed.

Research Training:

This PhD level course will be part of the thematic training programme offered by
the Marie Curie ITN project CLARA. The course will consist of lectures,
discussions, hands-on training activities and thesis/project work. The PhD
students will be invited to present their projects for discussion with the
invited speakers and other course participants.


The course is specifically aimed at early stage researchers pursuing a PhD
degree, but is also open for candidates at master and postdoctoral levels. The
course is relevant for researchers who are using language resources in their
work and who need training in state-of-the-art tools in terminology and
multilingual resources. We expect participants to have some knowledge about
computational aspects, but the course does not require specific programming
skills. Candidates who are affiliated with CLARA through one of its member
institutions will be given priority, but we also welcome other national and
international candidates.

ECTS Credits:

Participation in the course will give 5 ECTS credits for candidates at PhD level
who present their work, and a Diploma will be provided. Candidates not
presenting will be given a Course Attendance Certificate.
