Meeting Description:

Terminology and Artificial Intelligence (TIA) 2015 will highlight the close connection between multilingual terminology, ontologies, and the representation of specialized knowledge. Knowledge, as regarded in Terminology, is something more complex than a simple hierarchy or a thesaurus-like structure. In this sense, ontologies, understood as a shared conceptualization of a domain that can be communicated between people and/or systems, are better suited for accounting for multilinguality and contextual constraints. The link between Terminology and knowledge representation has been widely acknowledged with the advent of multilingual ontologies.

This is particularly relevant since today’s networked society has generated an increasing number of contexts where multilingualism challenges current knowledge representation methods and techniques. To meet these challenges, it is necessary to deal with semantics since information can be organized, presented, and searched, based on meaning and not just text. Ideally, this would mean that language-independent specialized knowledge could be accessed across different natural languages. There is thus the urgent need for high-quality multilingual knowledge resources that are able to bridge communication barriers, and which can be linked and shared.

Such issues can only be successfully addressed with creative collaborative solutions within disciplines, such as knowledge engineering, terminology, ontology engineering, cognitive sciences, corpus lexicology, and computational linguistics. Accordingly, the TIA 2015 Conference will provide a forum for interdisciplinary research that focuses on the intersection of different disciplines dealing with terminology, multilingualism, lexicology, ontology, and knowledge representation.

Call for Papers:

Extended submission deadline: 30 June 2015

Terminology and Artificial Intelligence 2015 4 November - 6 November 2015 University of Granada, Spain

Papers 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 an increasingly multilingual society. TIA 2015 solicits both regular papers (8 pages), which present significant work, and short papers (4 pages), which typically present work in progress or a smaller, focused contribution.

Regardless of the language of the paper( English, Spanish, or French), all paper presentations will be in English. The submission deadline is June 30.

See the conference webpage for more specific submission details.
