[Online CfP under http://w ww.ifi.unizh.ch/cl/yuste/lr4trans-2/wks_cfp.html] ‘Second International Workshop on Language Resources for Translation Work, Research and Training’ http: //www.ifi.unizh.ch/cl/yuste/lr4trans-2/lr4trans-2.html A satellite event of COLING 2004 Geneva, 28th August 2004 http://www.issco. unige.ch/coling2004/index.html === Workshop rationale and potential audience = After the successful First International Workshop ‘Language Resources (LR) for Translation Work & Research’, we are pleased to announce a second international edition, aiming at consolidating this workshop series among a wider and more heterogeneous translation community. We wish to raise further awareness about the usefulness of language resources (LR) in every aspect and facet of translation: from educational and on-the-job training (including e-learning and new forms of technology-facilitated training), to LR as created, managed and exploited by freelance and in-house language professionals. In so doing, we intend to allow for fruitful discussion and expertise exchange among practitioners, researchers, and trainers alike. We would be particularly keen to see a more prominent representation of the language industries at the event. Since this workshop edition will be held under the auspices of COLING, the participation of computational linguists with an interest in translation technologies and multilingual content production cycles will also be expected and favoured. === Workshop history, topics and contents = The first edition of this workshop series was celebrated in Las Palmas, Spain, on 28th May 2002, as a satellite event of LREC 2002 (Third Language Resources and Evaluation Conference), under the title ‘Language Resources for Translation Work & Research’. More information about the resulting materials from that event can be found on the workshop and post-workshop sites: http://www.if i.unizh.ch/cl/yuste/LREC/LR4Trans.html and h ttp://www.ifi.unizh.ch/cl/yuste/postworkshop/postworkshop.html. The title of this second international workshop has been extended to include the word “training” as we would particularly like to welcome papers about training initiatives that echo the importance of language resources (LR) for translation and language work. Distance learning or technology-enhanced training about LR would be of great interest. Nevertheless, this is not the only technical focus of the workshop as we wish to deepen in all the issues already proposed in the previous edition. It will also be essential to learn more about current procedures of multilingual content production and management and the role of language resources therein. We welcome contributions from academia, industry and heterogeneous translation arena representatives to exchange views and results in relation to one or more of the following topics: Reference corpora and other types of corpora (bilingual, multilingual, parallel, comparable, do-it-yourself corpora...) Alignment techniques Translation memories Machine translation Exploiting the WWW Terminology: compilation, extraction, management Content management Creation, use and leverage of LR Technical writing - multilingual issues Evaluation of LR Role of LR in the translation process (case studies and combinatory approaches, i.e. use of more than one resource), their integration, exchange and reusability E-learning for translators - LR-informed? Required skills? === Workshop format - Time schedule and preliminary agenda = This workshop will run for a whole working day, with mid-morning, lunch and mid-afternoon pauses, and at least one keynote speaker to be confirmed later. It is envisaged that we will have a pretty busy schedule, with 10 to 12 paper submissions (presentations) depending on the number, relevance and quality of paper submissions. We will also strive to offer a final round table, lasting for about 30 minutes. === Workshop Organisation = Elia Yuste (Workshop Chair) Address: Institute of Computational Linguistics, IFI, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, CH 8057 Zurich, Switzerland E: yuste_(on)_ifi.unizh.ch T: +41 (0)1 6356724 F: +41 (0)1 6356809 W: http://www.ifi.unizh.ch/cl/yuste Co-Organising Committee The workshop chair will work in cooperation with some staff members of the Department of Applied Linguistics and Intercultural Studies of the Zürcher Hochschule Winterthur (ZHW, http://www.zhw.ch/), namely Anna-Katharina Pantli (Terminology), Gary Massey (E-learning for Translators) and Susanne Jekat (Translation Technologies). === Workshop Scientific Committee - Panel of Experts (the following, plus the organizing committee members above) = · Frank Austermuehl, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, School of Applied Linguistics and Cultural Studies, Germersheim, Germany. · Amparo Alcina, Facultat de Traducció i Interpretació, Universitat Jaume I (UJI), Castelló de la Plana, Spain. · Silvia Bernardini, Scuola Avanzata di Lingue Moderne per Traduttore ed Interpreti, Università di Bologna a Forlì, Italia. · Lynne Bowker, School of Translation and Interpretation, University of Ottawa, Canada. · Gerhard Budin, Wissenschaftstheorie und Terminologie, Universität Wien, Austria. · Toni Badia & Martí Quixal, Departament de Traducció i Filologia, Universitat Pompèu Fabra (UPF), Barcelona, Spain. · Gloria Corpas Pastor, Dpto. de Traducción, Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, Universidad de Málaga, Spain. · Silvia Hansen-Schirra, Computerlinguistik, Allgemeine Linguistik, Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken, Germany. · Belinda Maia, Facultade de Letras da Universidade do Porto, Portugal. · Celia Rico Pérez, Dpto. de Traducción e Interpretación, Facultad de Comunicación y Humanidades, Universidad Europea de Madrid (UEM), Spain. · Antonio Sánchez Valderrábanos, Bitext.com, Madrid, Spain. === Useful information about paper submissions = The first contributions will be submitted electronically only, in .doc or .rtf format, to Ms Yuste (yuste_(on)_ifi.unizh.ch) not any later than 8th March 2004. They should be written in (acceptable and understandable) English as this will be the official language of the workshop/conference. Should the paper deal with issues relating to other languages, the author(s) is (are) kindly requested to provide the corresponding English translation. Papers should contain an abstract of maximum 150 words and a relevant list of references at the end of the paper. Figures and screenshots should be kept to a minimum. The expected paper length will be around 5,000 words including abstract, references and notes. The articles should not have any information about the author(s) such as name or affiliation; however, submissions will not be accepted if they are not accompanied by a separate text file containing the following data: name and full affiliation of the author(s), i.e. position and contact details (mail address, phone, fax, e-mail and website, if any), short CV and list of publications (if relevant to the workshop topic and own contribution). We also inform potential authors that their contributions will be published in the workshop proceedings within COLING’04 and, therefore, the papers selected for publication will have to adhere to COLING edition rules. More details about this will be made available by COLING and us in due course. === Important Dates = · Deadline for Electronic Submission of Abstracts + (Draft) Papers: 8th March 2004 · Notification of Acceptance/Rejection after Peer-Reviewed Period: 30th April 2004 · Deadline for Submission of Final Papers to Workshop Organising Committee (ideally respecting already COLING edition guidelines): 20th May 2004 * Absolute Final Deadline for Submission of Camera-Ready Papers to Workshop Organising Committee: 5th June 2004 · Workshop date: 28th August 2004 === Technical Facilities = Presenters will be provided with the usual technical facilities: an overhead projector, a beamer, and a computer with connection to the Internet. === Further Information = If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Workshop Chair by e-mail.
