2nd call for papers + deadline extension As a satellite event to the 10th International Conference on Terminology and Artificial Intelligence (TIA) that will take place at Université Paris 13 from October 28th to October 30th 2013 (http://flores.lipn.univ-paris13.fr/tia2013/Home.html), the following multidisciplinary workshop will be held: Lexical movement and its impact on specialised resources Since the 1990's, research in terminology has clearly demonstrated that terms are subject to variation. It is now a known fact that the causes for terminological variation are numerous, as described by Judit Freixa in an article published in 2004. In many cases, terminological variation is the result of different "movements" of terms and concepts which are happening either in time (we then speak of diachronic variation) or space (diatopic variation) as can be observed through the regional variation between France, Switzerland and Quebec, for example. Similarly, although less described, terminological variation can also happen at the social level (diastratic variation). Other causes of lexical movements also need to be investigated from a terminological perspective, such as the links between subject fields and the migration of terms from general language to specialized languages, or vice-versa (the terminologization and determinologisation phenomena, as described and named by Ingrid Meyer). Although these movements are documented and-at least partially-described, the point of view generally adopted to describe terms, which is subject-specific and synchronic, does not allow for an adequate description and understanding of those movements, which are not, consequently, adequately handled in the framework of terminology. The study of term variation from a theoretical point of view should lead to methodological approaches which would allow for the proper management of the different types of variation in electronic dictionaries, lexical databases and ontologies. Based on these observations, the objective of this workshop is to fuel reflection on the nature of terminological variation, its impacts, and what would be required to support terminological variation for specialized communication and/or terminographical resources, through the various types of "movements" such variation is built on. This workshop hopes to bring together researchers from disciplines such as terminology, corpus linguistics, lexicology, lexicography, computer science and cognitive science in order to gain different perspectives on the subject. Topics Topic 1 - Identification of the need to take into account terminological variation related to lexical movements (diachronic, diatopic, diastratic, etc.). o Case studies or examples that show the importance of taking variation into account in various contexts related to terminology, translation, ontology building or enrichment, information retrieval, lexicography, etc. o Impact on knowledge management and linguistic risk mitigation, and potential solutions for such problems Topic 2 - Methodological proposals for tracking or processing variation o Using specialized comparable corpus, resources comparison, use of ontologies, tools, annotations, etc. o Using the Web as corpus for tracking Topic 3 - Methods for taking variation into account in terminographical and lexicographical resources or ontologies o Methods to handle lexical movements in different types of resources o Proposed formalization for different applications o Strengths and limitations This list is not closed and propositions for any related issues are welcome. Paper submissions Papers will be submitted to a double blind review before September 15, 2013 (new deadline). Proposals must be sent to tia.atelier.mouvement_(at)_gmail.com in PDF format and must include the following: · A 2 to 3 page paper proposal (between 1000 and 1500 words, including references). · A separate file containing full name, institution and contact information (email address, phone number and mailing address) of the author or authors and the title of the paper; Proposals will be evaluated by the scientific committee of the workshop on the basis of the following criteria: · the relevance of the topic to the theme of the conference; · the theoretical or conceptual framework and methodology proposed, related to research (if empirical); · the organization and clarity of the proposal. Instructions for authors: http://flores.lipn.univ-paris13.fr/tia2013/Submission.html Key Dates Deadline for submission of proposals: 10 September 2013 15 September 2013 Notice of acceptance: 30 September 2013 Deadline for the final version of the proposal: 10 October 2013 Workshop: October 30, 2013 Workshop Venue Wednesday, October 30 2013 at the Institut Galilée, Université Paris 13, 99 av. Jean-Baptiste Clément 93430 Villetaneuse. Proceedings In a first stage, the final versions of the proposals will be consolidated in a PDF document and distributed to participants of TIA. Subsequently, the organizers plan to publish a collective volume on the topic of the workshop, which will include extended versions of the papers presented at the workshop and evaluated by a scientific committee. The collection will also include papers from a conference on the same topic which was held in Quebec City in May 2013 in the context of the annual conference of the Association francophone pour le savoir (ACFAS).
