	CHAT 2011: Workshop on Creation, Harmonization and Application of Terminology Resources

Co-located with NODALIDA 2011
May 11-13, 2011, Riga, Latvia




Submission deadline: March 14, 2011 at 23.59 CET (GMT+1)



The first workshop on Creation, Harmonization and Application of Terminology resources (CHAT 2011) will be held in conjunction with the 18th Nordic Conference on Computational Linguistics (http://www.lumii.lv/nodalida2011/) on May 11, 2011, in Riga, Latvia.

Terminology plays an extremely important role in the translation and localization industry, as well as in natural language processing. Different national and international activities have been undertaken to create terminology resources and apply them in computer-assisted and machine translation tools (for example, the TTC project: Terminology Extraction, Translation Tools and Comparable Corpora, www.ttc-project.eu). Another issue is the consolidation and harmonization of dispersed multilingual terminology resources. An important step towards this direction is the federated approach of providing access to content from multiple data sources, such as EuroTermBank (www.eurotermbank.com), as well as international activities of providing common language resources and their applications (the CLARA project, https://clara.uib.no) and open linguistic infrastructures (the META-NORD project: Baltic and Nordic Branch of the European Open Linguistic Infrastructure), to serve the needs of industry and research communities in language resources, including terminologies.
The planned workshop aims at bringing together academic and industrial researchers in the area of terminology and attracting young researchers to terminology issues in particular. The workshop also focuses on fostering the cooperation between EU projects and research and development activities in the area of terminology along with sharing experience and discussing recent advances of the application of terminology resources in machine translation and other natural language processing areas and use of terminology resources in the translation and localization industry.

We call for participation researchers in the areas of terminology, terminography, language resources, translation and localization, and natural language processing, as well as language workers (translators, terminologists, technical writers, editors, quality assurance specialists, project managers) and graduate and postgraduate students performing their research in the abovementioned areas. Other relevant stakeholders are also welcome to participate.


The theme of the workshop is the creation, harmonization and application of terminology resources. We invite the submission of papers on the following topics addressed but not limited to:
• Automated approaches to terminology extraction and creation of terminology resources • Compiling multilingual terminology • Online terminology resources • Interoperability and harmonization of terminology resources • Translation-oriented terminography • Terminology resources in machine translation and other natural language processing areas • Terminology management and sharing • National and international initiatives in the consolidation and distribution of terminology resources • Terminology resources as part of the Open Language Resource Infrastructure


Prof. Gerhard Budin (University of Vienna) “Terminology Resource Development in Global Domain Communities – Practical Experiences, Case Studies and Conclusions for Future Projects”

Prof. Emmanuel Morin (University of Nantes) “Bilingual Terminology Extraction from Comparable Corpora”.


The workshop proposes three different submission categories:
• REGULAR PAPERS (no more than 8 pages) reporting on completed research including concrete evaluation results.
• SHORT PAPERS (no more than 4 pages) reporting on on-going research and/or terminology issues discussions.
• DEMO PAPERS (2 pages) describing the demonstrated resource or system (both prototypes and mature systems).


All submissions must be in Adobe PDF and follow the NODALIDA conference formatting requirements (available at http://www.lumii.lv/nodalida2011/call4papers.html). Since reviewing will be blind, papers should not include names of authors and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author’s identity should be avoided. We reserve the right to reject submissions that do not conform to these requirements. 
Submission will be electronic and must be made through the EasyChair website of the workshop at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=chat2011. Papers must be submitted no later than March 14, 2011. Papers submitted after the deadline will not be reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in workshop proceedings.


Reviewing will be managed by the Programme Committee. The reviewing process will be blind and each submission will receive three independent reviews.
