                     CALL FOR PAPERS
COMPUTERM'02: Second Workshop on Computational Terminology
             Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan
                     31 August, 2002

Organisation Committee:

Lee-Feng Chien, Academia Sinica, Taiwan.
Beatrice Daille, IRIN, University of Nantes, France.
Kyo Kageura, National Institute of Informatics, Japan.
Hiroshi Nakagawa, Information Technology Center, The University of
  Tokyo, Japan.

Scope and Background:

COMPUTERM'02: Second Workshop on Computational Terminology invites
a wide range of papers on substantial, original and unpublished
research on all aspects of computational terminology related areas,
including, but not limited to:

 Basic computational terminology
 - structuring of terminology, such as construction of
terminological thesaurus, establishing semantic relations, conceptual
organisation, etc.
 - bilingual/multilingual terminology alignment/management and
translation extraction
 - terminology extraction
 - terminology resource management Linguistic aspects of terminology
with computational consideration
 - terms and compounding
 - terms and collocations
 - various linguistic aspects of term variations and use

 - domain-dependent IE/NE tasks with reference to terms and
terminology, such as the treatment of Biology or Medical
 - IR/indexing with domain-dependent lexical perspectives
 - encoding terminology-related information and resources
 - document structuring through terminological information, e.g.
making hypertext through terminological links, etc.
Purely linguistic topics with no relation to computational aspects
and purely application topics without any relation to terms and
terminology as linguistic entity (e.g. n-gram based IR) are out of the
scope of the workshop.

COMPUTERM'02 is the second COLING workshop devoted to computational
terminology. The first, very successful, workshop was held at the
occasion of COLING/ACL'98 at Montreal, Canada in 1998. Selected
papers in the first COMPUTERM'98 workshop were published in Recent
Advances in Computational Terminology (John Benjamins).
