    Dear Colleagues,

    The Organising Committee of the Computerm 2002 at the occasion of COLING-2002
    are pleased to welcome participants from all countries to join us at the
    Computerm workshop to be held on 31 August, 2002 at Academia Sinica, Taipei.

    The workshop is for promoting exchange of information among researchers
    interested in technical or specialised terms and terminology from all over
    the world, and covers such topics as:
    - Basic computational terminology such as term extraction from corpora,
      structuring of terminology, multilingual terminology alignment, terminolgy
      resource management;
    - Linguistc aspects relevant to terminology such as processing compounds
      and paraphrasing;
    - Applications such as domain-dependent IE/NE/QA tasks, IR/indexing with
      domain-dependent lexical perspectives, terminology encoding, document
      structuring through terminological information.

    This year we have 12 high-quality papers for oral presentation, and a 30
    minutes discussion for the topics related to computational terminology.
    The program (tentative) is attached below. For updated information, please
    refer to the workshop webpage at:

    The first Computerm workshop held in 1998 at Motreal, Canada, was a great
    with 17 papers (oral and poster) and more than 50 perticipants. The papers were
    eventially made into a single volume of "Recent Advances in Computational
    Terminology" (John Benjamins, 2001).

    The on-line registration system is also open at the COLING main website:

    We look forwards to your participation in August.
