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 Vasiļjevs, 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.

Registration deadline (extended): 1 August 2010
