Call For Papers

The 1st Workshop on Computational Terminology in NLP and Translation
Studies (ConTeNTs)

Varna, 7th-8th September, 2023
Website of the workshop:

In conjunction with RANLP 2023 - International Conference "Recent
Advances in Natural Language Processing"

Computational Terminology and new technologies applied to translation
studies have attracted the interest of researchers with very different
multidisciplinary backgrounds and motivations. Those fields cover a
range of areas in Natural Language Processing (NLP) such as information
retrieval, terminology extraction, question-answering systems, ontology
building, machine translation, computer-aided translation, automatic or
semi-automatic abstracting, text generation, etc.

Terminological identification, extraction and coinage of new terms are
essential for knowledge mining from texts, both in high and low
resources languages. Quick evolutions and new developments in
specialised domains require efficient and systematic automatic term
management. New terms need to be coined and translated to ensure the
equitable development of domains in all languages.
During the last decade, deep learning and neural methods have become the
state of the art for most NLP applications. Those applications were
shown to outperform previous methods on various tasks, including
automatic term extraction, language mining, assessment of quality in
machine translation, accessibility of terminology, etc. On the one hand,
NLP and computational linguistics try to improve the work of translators
and interpreters by developing Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT)
tools, Translation Memories (TMs), terminological databases and
terminology extraction tools, etc. On the other hand, the NLP field
still needs the efforts and knowledge of translators, interpreters and
linguists to provide better services and tools based on the real
necessities of those language professionals.

The aim of this workshop is to promote new insights into the ongoing and
forthcoming developments in computational terminology by bringing
together NLP experts, as well as terminologists and translators. By
uniting researchers with such diverse profiles, we hope to bridge some
of the gaps between these disciplines and inspire a dialogue between
various parties, thus paving the way to more artificial intelligence
applications based on mutual collaboration between language and

Topics of Interest

The ConTeNTs workshop invites the submission of papers reporting on
original and unpublished research on topics related to Computational
Terminology in NLP and Translation Studies, including but not limited

- Automatic term extraction: monolingual and multilingual extraction
of terms from parallel and comparable corpora, including single and
multiword expressions;
- Extraction and acquisition of semantic relations between terms;
- Extraction and generation of domain specific definitions and
disambiguation of terms;
- Representation of terms, management of term variation and the
discovery of synonym terms or term clusters and its relation to NLP
- Extraction of terminological context, through the use of comparable
and parallel corpus;
- Accessibility of terminology in certain domains, relevant to
non-experts or to laypersons, and its relevance to NLP applications such
as, chatbots, automatic email generation or spoken language interface;
- The impact of terminology on MT (applying terminology constraints,
evaluation of MT in domain-specific settings, etc.);
- The creation of domain ontologies, thesaurus, terminological
resources in specialised domains;
- The use of new technologies in translation studies and research and
the use of terminological resources in specialised translation;
- Identification of key problems in terminology and new technologies
used in translation studies;
- Evaluation of terminological resources in various NLP applications
and the impact of these resources have on the performance of the
automatic systems;
- Emerging language technologies: how the increased reliance on
real-time language technologies would change the structure of language;
- Corpus based studies applied to translation and interpreting: the
use of parallel and comparable corpora for translating phraseological
- Phraseology and multiword expressions in cross-linguistic studies;
- Translation and interpreting tools, such as translation memories,
machine translation and alignment tools;
- User requirements for interpreting and translation tools.
