Terminology plays an extremely important role in the translation and localization industry, as well as in natural language processing. Different national and international activities have been undertaken to create terminology resources and apply them in computer-assisted and machine translation tools (for example, the TTC project: Terminology Extraction, Translation Tools and Comparable Corpora, www.ttc-project.eu). Another issue is the consolidation and harmonization of dispersed multilingual terminology resources. An important step towards this direction is the federated approach of providing access to content from multiple data sources, such as EuroTermBank (www.eurotermbank.com), as well as international activities of providing common language resources and their applications (the CLARA project, https://clara.uib.no) and open linguistic infrastructures (the META-NORD project: Baltic and Nordic Branch of the European Open Linguistic Infrastructure), to serve the needs of industry and research communities in language resources, including terminologies. The planned workshop aims at bringing together academic and industrial researchers in the area of terminology and attracting young researchers to terminology issues in particular. The workshop also focuses on fostering the cooperation between EU projects and research and development activities in the area of terminology along with sharing experience and discussing recent advances of the application of terminology resources in machine translation and other natural language processing areas and use of terminology resources in the translation and localization industry. We call for participation researchers in the areas of terminology, terminography, language resources, translation and localization, and natural language processing, as well as language workers (translators, terminologists, technical writers, editors, quality assurance specialists, project managers) and graduate and postgraduate students performing their research in the abovementioned areas. Other relevant stakeholders are also welcome to participate. TOPICS The theme of the workshop is the creation, harmonization and application of terminology resources. We invite the submission of papers on the following topics addressed but not limited to:  Automated approaches to terminology extraction and creation of terminology resources  Compiling multilingual terminology  Online terminology resources  Interoperability and harmonization of terminology resources  Translation-oriented terminography  Terminology resources in machine translation and other natural language processing areas  Terminology management and sharing  National and international initiatives in the consolidation and distribution of terminology resources  Terminology resources as part of the Open Language Resource Infrastructure KEYNOTE SPEAKERS Prof. Gerhard Budin (University of Vienna) "Terminology Resource Development in Global Domain Communities - Practical Experiences, Case Studies and Conclusions for Future Projects" Prof. Emmanuel Morin (University of Nantes) "Bilingual Terminology Extraction from Comparable Corpora". CATEGORIES OP PAPERS The workshop proposes three different submission categories:  REGULAR PAPERS (no more than 8 pages) reporting on completed research including concrete evaluation results.  SHORT PAPERS (no more than 4 pages) reporting on on-going research and/or terminology issues discussions.
