Computational Terminology and Filtering of Terminological Information

Computational Terminology covers an increasingly important aspect in Natural Language Processing areas such as text mining, information retrieval, information extraction, summarisation, textual entailment, document management systems, question-answering systems, ontology building, machine translation, etc. Terminological information is paramount for knowledge mining from texts for scientific discovery and competitive intelligence.

Thanks to many years of research work, Computational Terminology has gained in strength and maturity. New requirements emerge from the current use of terminological approaches in many domains. Thus, scientific needs in fast growing domains (such as biomedicine, chemistry and ecology) and the overwhelming amount of textual data published daily demand that terminology is acquired and managed systematically and automatically; while in well established domains (such as law, economy, banking and music) the demand is on fine-grained analyses of documents for knowledge description and acquisition. Moreover, capturing new concepts leads to the acquisition and management of new knowledge.

The aim of this special issue is to present and describe research work dedicated to extraction and filtering of terminological information with computational methods. In that context, the addressed topics are more particularly dedicated, but not limited, to:

- robustness and portability of methods for filtering extracted terms
- word embedding approaches for terminology acquisition
- transfer of methodologies from one language to another
- new needs of users
- consideration of the user expertise
- monolingual and multilingual resources
- re-utilization and adaptation of terminologies in various NLP
- systematic terminology management and updating domain specific dictionaries and thesauri

The submissions are open to different approaches, theoretical frameworks and applications. We encourage authors to submit their research work related to various aspects of computational terminology, such as mentioned in this call.
