                         A Coling-2004 Workshop

Computational Terminology becomes an increasingly important aspect in
areas such as text mining, information retrieval, information
extraction, summarisation, document management systems,
question-answering systems, ontology building, etc. In text mining,
the acquisition of new knowledge is best captured in terms as they
denote new concepts. Terminological information is paramount to
knowledge mining from texts for scientific discovery and competitive
intelligence. Currently, scientific needs in emerging scientific
domains, such as biomedicine, coupled with the overwhelming amount of
textual data published daily, raised an additional interest to the
usefulness of terminology acquired and managed systematically and

The aim of this workshop is to bring together NLP researchers in
Terminology and to discuss recent advances in computational
terminology and its impact in many NLP applications. Issues like
standardisation of terminological resources, constructing and updating
domain specific dictionaries and thesauri, systematic terminology
management will be addressed as they are a necessary component of any
NLP system dealing with domain-specific literature.

Areas of interest

The 3rd workshop on Computational Terminology invites a range of papers
on substantial, original and unpublished research on areas of
computational terminology such as:

   * Mining terminology (NLP techniques for the acquisition and
     alignment of mono-lingual and multi-lingual terminology)

   * Structuring and managing terminology (term variation, term
     association discovery, term clustering and classification)

   * Terminological integration and update of resources (linking of
     terminological databases, thesauri, ontologies, (semi)-automatic
     update of terminological resources)

   * Applications of terminological information (term oriented IE, IR,
     QA, summarisation etc)

   * Evaluation of terminology

Submission format

Papers for workshop contributions should not exceed 8 pages (including
references, figures, etc.). Authors should follow the main conference
Coling style format. An additional title page should include the title,
author(s), affiliation(s), contact email address, postal address,
telephone, url (as a separate file as main submissions are anonymous).

Submissions should be sent via email, using ps or pdf format to:
