From: Christian.Jacquemin <>
Subject: Computational Terminology Workshop

 Final CFP : DEADLINE March 23, 1998 

 First Workshop on Computational Terminology


WHEN: August 15, 1998 (immediately following ACL/COLING-98)

WHERE: University of Montreal, Montreal (Quebec, Canada)


The workshop will provide a forum to bring together researchers from
the fields of computational linguistics, terminology, automated
translation, information retrieval and lexicography who share an
interest in computational aspects of terminology processing:
acquisition, extraction, indexing, machine-aided thesaurus building,
dictionary construction, etc. The aim of the workshop is to stimulate
the exchange of innovative ideas and results of diverse aspects of
automatic term processing in order to bridge the gap between these


The topics of the workshop include (but are not limited to):
 - Construction of terminology resources
 - Semi- or automatic acquisition of terms
 - Semi- or automatic acquisition of conceptual knowledge
 - Thesaurus construction and maintenance
 - Use of terminology resources (term banks, thesauri,
 specialized lexicons,...)
 - Terms in information retrieval (stemming, automatic indexing,
 query expansion, ...)
 - Multi-lingual terminological resources for cross-language IR
 - Terminology management in machine-aided translation
 - Terminology and NLP (parsing, tagging, text understanding,
 - Terminology processing for other applications


Only hard-copy submissions will be accepted. Authors should
submit six (6) copies of their full-length paper (3500-5000 words).
Submissions should be sent:

Style Files and Templates for Preparing Submissions

The official language of the Conference is English. However, papers
can also be submitted in French. The final version of the papers will
be accompanied by two long abstracts in two different languages.
All the presentation at the workshop will be given in English.

Message 2: Terminology & Knowledge Engineering

Date: Thu, 5 Mar 1998 11:11:47 +0100
Subject: Terminology & Knowledge Engineering

First Call for Papers
TKE '99
Communicating into 2000

5th International Congress on Terminology and Knowledge Engineering
Innsbruck (Austria)
24-28 August 1999

organized by
Association for Terminology and Knowledge Transfer (GTW)
International Information Centre for Terminology (Infoterm)
International Network for Terminology (TermNet)

Objectives of the Congress

On behalf of the Association for Terminology and Knowledge Transfer -
Gesellschaft fur Terminologie und Wissenstransfer (GTW) we are pleased
to announce the 5th International Congress on Terminology and
Knowledge Engineering TKE '99 which will be held on the campus of the
University of Innsbruck, Austria, between 24-28 August, 1999. In
continuation of the first four TKE Congresses in Trier (1987 and
1990), Cologne (1993) and Vienna (1996), TKE'99 will address
world-wide interests in the interdisciplinary methods of Terminology
Science, Information Science and Computer Science. It should
furthermore help achieve the "universal availability of information
and knowledge" via computerized methods and tools, open new horizons
for more efficient applications based upon this integration of
methodologies and elicit the interest and participation of experts
working in the fields that are gradually drawing nearer from the point
of theory and methodology such as

- Terminology research
- Knowledge engineering
- Language engineering
- Computational philosophy
- Classification theory
- Information & documentation
- Computer-assisted instruction/learning
- Computerized terminography
- Specialized translation
- Technical writing

We welcome submission of papers describing substantial, original and
unpublished research contributions in these fields. TKE '99 will be
divided into 8 sections concentrating on the following areas of
research: 1. Knowledge Theory and Terminology 2. Knowledge Data
Management 3. Multimedia and Terminology 4. Language Engineering and
Terminology 5. Documentation and Terminology 6. World Wide Web and
Terminology 7. Multilingualism and Terminology 8. Specialist
Communication and Terminology

Authors will be asked to identify the sections to which their
submission corresponds. Contributions that do not fall into any of the
above areas but are nevertheless relevant to the field are also
welcome. The working language of the Congress is English. This refers
to the written contributions as well as to their oral presentation.
Authors are asked to provide an abstract (approx. 2 pages) of their
papers to the programme organizer by 15 October 1998, at the latest.
The title page is to show the title of the paper, the author's name,
address, phone number and fax number, and the section to which he/she
is planning to contribute. The abstracts should be sent preferably by
e-mail ( (a submission form is available on
the TKE home page: or by mail (4 copies) or
fax. The abstract then undergoes a reviewing process carried out by
the Programming Committee and the section organizers.

By the end of November 1998 the authors will be informed about the
acceptance of their papers. Then they will have time until February
1999 to submit a full paper in A4 camera-ready format and on floppy
disk (approx. 10 pages for the session papers and 15 pages for the
keynotes), which will be processed for publication in the proceedings
and printed prior to the Congress. The proceedings will be available
for the participants at the beginning of the Congress.

Workshops / Tutorials

Proposals for Workshops and/or tutorials within the framework of the
Congress are welcomed and should be sent as soon as possible to the
programme organizer.
