Meeting Description:

The Center for Research in Terminology and Translation (CRTT) of the University of Lyon is organizing an international conference on neology in specialized languages which will take place in Lyon on 2-3 July 2012. The aim of the conference is to bring together linguists interested in discussing the following aspects of neology in specialized communication:

- The methods and tools which are used to detect new terms and concepts
- The importance of written and oral corpora to detect new terms
- The methods and tools which are used to measure and evaluate the implantation of new terms in a specialized language and their circulation to other specialized languages
- The influence of language policies on the implantation and circulation of neologisms
- The diachronic evolution of neologisms
- The treatment of neologisms by general-purpose and specialized dictionaries

We are pleased to announce that Kyo Kageura, from the University of Tokyo, and Jean Quirion, from the University of Ottawa, have accepted our invitation to give keynote presentations at the conference.

Call for Papers:

Any proposal exploring one of the listed themes from a theoretical or practical standpoint and from a synchronic or diachronic perspective is welcome. Papers must be original research and must not have already been published or presented at a conference.

Papers may be given in French, English or Spanish.

Abstracts should not exceed 600 words (excluding references). Please submit your file in .doc format to journees.du.crttgmail.com by 6 February 2012. It will be double-blind reviewed by two members of the scientific committee. Notification of acceptance will be sent by email by 16 March 2012.

Each presentation will be allotted 20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for questions and discussion.
