Call For Papers

Second call for papers: Special Issue - Terminology 21(2), 2015

Terminology across languages and domains

Computational Terminology covers an increasingly important dimension of
Natural Language Processing, affecting areas such as text mining,
information retrieval, information extraction, summarisation, textual
entailment, document management systems, question-answering systems,
ontology building, machine translation, etc. Terminological information is
paramount for knowledge mining from texts for scientific discovery and
competitive intelligence. As a result of many years of research,
Computational Terminology has gained in strength and maturity. It proposes
well-tried and novel methodologies, tools and resources for several
languages and domains.

The aim of this special issue is to present and describe relevant research
dedicated to any of the above mentioned areas. More particularly, the topics
to be addressed in this issue are expected to be concerned with, though not
necessarily exclusively to, such areas as:

- Robustness and portability of methods: e.g. the application of
methods developed in one given context to other contexts (corpora,
domains, languages, etc.) and to share the research expertise among

- Monolingual and multilingual resources: e.g. opening possibilities
for developing cross-lingual and multi-lingual applications,
requiring specific corpora; the design, development and evaluation
of robust methods and tools are challenging issues;

- Social networks and modern media processing: this aspect remains
very attractive for researchers. The available data provided contain
very rich information, although its processing is challenging for
Natural Language Processing and methodology of Computational

- Re-utilization and adaptation of terminologies in various NLP
applications: because terminologies are a necessary component of any
NLP system dealing with domain-specific literature their use in the
corresponding NLP applications is essential. Re-utilization and
adaptation of terminologies is a challenging research direction,
especially when the terminologies developed for one domain or
application are to be used for different domains or applications;

- Catering for new user needs: e.g. designing, creating new and/or
adapting existing methods and research experience to user needs not
hitherto covered by existing research;

- Transfer of methodologies from one language to another, especially
when the transfer is concerned with less-resourced languages;

- Consideration of user expertise: this topic is becoming a new issue
in terminological activities; it takes into account the fact that
specialized domains contain notions and terms often incomprehensible
to non-experts or to laymen (such as patients within the field of
medicine, or bank clients within the field of banking and
economics). This topic, although related to specialized areas,
provides direct links between specialized languages and general
language.� It concerns the challenge to use methods and resources,
though often designed for the expert must also satisfy non-expert

- Systematic terminology management and updating domain specific
dictionaries and thesauri, which are important aspects for
maintaining existing terminological resources. These aspects become
crucial because the volume of the existing terminological resources
is constantly increasing and because their constant and efficient
use depends on their maintenance and updating, while their
re-acquisition is costly and often non-reproducible.

The editors are willing to accept submissions covering different approaches,
theoretical frameworks and applications, such as mentioned in this call.

Papers should be anonymous, written with Word and comprise between 20-30
pages (max. 9,000 words). More information on formatting requirements can be
found on English is
preferred (80% of the contents), but submissions in French, Spanish or
German will be considered.

Each issue of Terminology contains up to six or seven articles.

- Submission deadline: January 25th, 2015
- First acceptance notification: March 25th, 2015
- Modified versions: April 25th, 2015
- Final acceptance notification: May 25th, 2015
