Title: Multilingual Thesaurus and Terminology

Brussels - December 5th 2014
The Cinquantenaire MuseumParc du Cinquantenaire 10

The ever-increasing amount of open data and linked data raises questions
concerning its access in a multilingual context. Due to the diversity of
the collections, of the institutions that manage them, of the public
that has access to them and of the technologies currently available, it
is necessary to rethink the notions of thesaurus and terminology, as
well as the ways to manage and access these collections.

Some of the topics that will be covered by the TOTh 2014 Workshop
include (this list is not exhaustive):

Principles, Theories and Methods: Thesauri, Terminology, Ontology,
Controlled Vocabulary, Semantic Network;
Embracing and Managing Multilingualism;
Mapping, Alignment and Harmonisation of terminologies, thesauri,
Indexing and Research;
The compatibility of the ISO and W3C Standards concerning terminology,
thesauri, knowledge systems and interchange format;
Impact and contributions from new domains and technologies connected
to Knowledge Engineering and the Semantic Web;
Software Environments.
Special attention will be given to the issue of cultural content
