9ème conférence internationale Terminologie et Intelligence Artificielle

  Multilingual terminology at the crossroads

  Paris, 7-9 November 2011



It is widely held that we are living in an era in which global
communication technology has enabled us to transcend borders and that
we are witnessing the advent of a global community. Although this
oft-repeated claim is not without foundation, it is also an undeniable
reality that one of the greatest obstacles to global communication --
the language barrier -- remains almost intact and manifests itself in
every facet of global communication.

Parallel to this, certain trends - which perhaps emerged quite a while
ago - have intensified to such an extent that they have become issues
of serious concern. One is the fragmentation not only of scientific
subjects but also of non-scientific activities, and the accompanying
subdivision of communications, even within a single language. For
example, mathematicians working on different topics use different
terminology sets, and the intersection between the jargon used by
gamers and that used by musicians is minimal; even among gamers,
different jargons are used depending on the type and genre of the
game.  The other is the massively reduced life expectancy of terms in
cutting-edge spheres. It is not uncommon to find that a set of terms
one learned several years ago is no longer in use.

While multilingual terminology is a well-established research topic,
these changes in the environment in which the topic is situated have
given it a new dimension and increased the challenges involved in
researching it. It is against this backdrop that we chose multilingual
aspects of terminology as the central topic for TIA 2011, while at the
same time welcoming a broad range of related topics.

TIA 2011 will be the ninth event in the successful series which
started out as a predominantly francophone conference. The conference
has gradually attracted a wider audience and over the past six years
it has grown to be a truly international conference. Welcome to TIA


Papers can address theoretical questions or methodological aspects.
Interdisciplinary work which emphasizes the convergence and
co-operation of multiple disciplines dealing with terminological
issues is welcome.

Papers addressing specific issues linked to the topic of multilingual
terminology will be particularly welcome, but we are also soliciting
original contributions on any of the following topics with a
theoretical, methodological or practical orientation:

Terminology acquisition and management
 * term acquisition
 * terminology structuring: acquisition of relations
 * terms as named entities
 * terminology evolution
 * terminology evaluation
 * multimodal information management in terminology

Terminology and knowledge representation
 * ontology construction from terminological resources
 * status of linguistic semantics and ontology
 * knowledge evolution and terminological dynamics

Terminology for applications
 * terminology in industrial applications
 * terminology in education
 * terminology for human translation
 * terminology for machine translation
 * terminology for natural language processing


     17 June 2011   Deadline for submission
 8 September 2011   Notification
26 September 2011   Final camera-ready paper due
7-9 November 2011   Conference


TIA 2011 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.

Regular papers, in English or French, should not exceed 7 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.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format at .
