9th International Conference on Terminology and Artificial Intelligence (TIA 2011)

9ème conférence internationale Terminologie et Intelligence Artificielle
Multilingual terminology at the crossroads

Paris, 8-10 November 2011

It is widely held that we are living in an era in which global communication technology has enabled us to transcend borders and that we are witnessing the advent of a global community. Although this oft-repeated claim is not without foundation, it is also an undeniable reality that one of the greatest obstacles to global communication -- the language barrier -- remains almost intact and manifests itself in every facet of global communication.
Parallel to this, certain trends - which perhaps emerged quite a while ago - have intensified to such an extent that they have become issues of serious concern.
One is the fragmentation not only of scientific subjects but also of non-scientific activities, and the accompanying subdivision of communications, even within a single
language. The other is the massively reduced life expectancy of terms in cutting-edge spheres. It is not uncommon to find that a set of terms one learned several years ago is no longer in use.

While multilingual terminology is a well-established research topic, these changes in the environment in which the topic is situated have given it a new dimension and increased the challenges involved in researching it. It is against this backdrop that we chose multilingual aspects of terminology as the central topic for TIA 2011, while at the same time welcoming a broad range of related topics.

TIA 2011 will be the ninth event in the successful series which started out as a predominantly francophone conference. The conference has gradually attracted a wider audience and over the past six years it has grown to be a truly international conference.
The TIA conferences attract researchers mainly from corpus linguistics, terminology, ontology and knowledge representation, natural language processing, and knowledge engineering.

The 2011 edition will be organized by M. Valette from CRIM-INALCO in Paris on Nov 8th and 9th. The conference chairs are Kyo Kageura (University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan) and Pierre Zweigenbaum (LIMSI-CNRS & CRIM-INALCO, Paris, France).

TIA 2011 will include two workshops on Nov. 10th:
- Terminology for extracting subjective information
- Ontology and Lexicon: new insights
