Terminology for a Networked Society: Recent Advances in Multilingual Knowledge-based Resources

Paris, 28-29-30 October 2013

TIA 2013 will be the 10th in a series of successful events which, for the most part, initially took place in the francophone world. Over a period of almost 20 years - the first conference was held in 1995 - TIA has increasingly attracted the attention of many researchers and practitioners all over the world, and its work has become truly international.

The aim of TIA 2013 is to provide an overview of the new ways in which multilingual terminology is present in an ever-increasing networked society, and to pay special attention both to the methods applied in the conceptualization of domain knowledge and to the applications and tools that will meet the requirements of e-society. In this way, terminology, linguistics and knowledge engineering provide the basis on which many other disciplines develop their applications such as domain ontologies, natural language processing tools, multilingual knowledge-based tools and web-based linguistic applications. New approaches to the standardization and to the reuse and integration of different tools designed to facilitate work in institutions, companies and society in general will be welcome.

The TIA 2013 Conference aims to promote interdisciplinary research focusing on the intersection of different disciplines that deal with terminological aspects and knowledge engineering resources. Discussions may address both theoretical questions and methodological aspects on these issues, as well as interdisciplinary approaches developed to facilitate convergence and co-operation in terminological aspects of importance to society.

Final Call for Papers:

Extended deadline: 28 June 2013

Topics of Interest:

Terminology and Ontology Acquisition and Management:

- Applying pattern recognition to enriching terminological resources
- Lexicons, thesauri and ontologies as semantic resources- Lexicons and ontologies as means for knowledge transfer- Reusing, standardizing and merging terminological or ontological resources
- Multilingual terminology extraction
- Multilinguality and multimodality in terminological resources- Management of language resources

Terminology and Knowledge Representation:

- Ontological semantics and linguistics
- Ontology localization
- Development of multimedia terminological resources
- Terminology alignment in parallel corpora and other lexical resources- Representation of terms and conceptual relations in knowledge-based applications- Comparative studies of terminological resources and/or ontological resources from different languages, domains and approaches- Terminological resources in the 21st century- Harmonization of format and standards in terminological resources

Terminology and Ontologies for Applications:

- Interoperability and reusability in knowledge-based tools and applications- Models and metamodels in annotating semantic and terminological resources- New R &D directions in terminology for industrial uses and needs


TIA 2013 solicits both regular papers, which present significant work, and short papers, which typically present work in progress or a smaller, focused contribution. The program committee may decide to change the category of a paper before acceptance. Papers can be written either in English or French.

Regular papers should not exceed 8 pages in ACL-HLT 2011 format (see below for LaTeX and MS Word style files), including figures, examples and references. The mode of presentation of long papers (orally or as posters) will be decided based on the nature rather than on the quality of the work.

Short papers should not exceed 4 pages in the same format as regular papers. They will also be presented orally or as posters at the conference depending on the nature of the work.

Authors should submit the papers in PDF through the TIA submission page at

At the submission page, the author(s) must provide the following information:

1. Name(s) of author(s)
2. Affiliation(s), addresses, fax and email
3. Title of the paper
4. 5 to 10 key words in English or in French (in both languages if possible)
5. Abstract in English or in French (in both languages if possible) (200 words maximum for each)

As the reviewing will be blind, the paper itself must not include the authors’ names and affiliations at submission time. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author’s identity, e.g., ‘We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...’, must be avoided. Instead, use citations such as ‘Smith previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...’. Reviews of full papers (long and short) will be performed by three reviewers.

Styles Files:

Authors are required to use the following style files so that the papers follow the conference format.

MS Word:

Important: Remove authors’ information from your manuscripts when submitting them for blind review (see above)!
