    Dear Corpora mailing-list members,

    Below please find a call for papers of

    Computerm'02: Second Workshop on Computational Terminology

    We look forward to many submissions of high-quality papers.

    Apologies if you receive multiple copies.

                         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    wide range of papers on substantial, original and unpublished research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
     - 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 concept/nomenclature.
     - 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).


    Submission should follow the guidelines of COLING 2002 main conference
    paper submission described in

    - Papers should be equivalent to regular papers (no project notes or
    - We do not have submission registration form, so papers should be
      directly sent to the address below.
    - Only electronic submissions are accepted. In addition to PS and PDF,
      we can accept .doc (MSWord) file as well. They should be sent to:
      with the subject "Submission to COMPUTERM'02."
    - Please especially be careful about the treatment (embedding) of fonts.
      We will ask to re-submit when we cannot print them.

    Important dates:

    Deadline for paper submission: 5 May, 2002
    Notification of acceptance: 15 June, 2002
    Final camera-ready copy due: 1 July, 2002
    COMPUTERM'2002 workshop: 31 August, 2002


    Reviewing will be managed by the Scientific Committee of the Workshop.
    Each submission will be reviewed by two reviewers.
