About TIA 2013



TIA 2013 will be the 10th in a series of successful events which, for the most part, initially took place in the francophone world. Over a period of almost 20 years – the first conference was held in 1995 – TIA has increasingly attracted the attention of many researchers and practitioners all over the world, and its work has become truly international.


The aim of TIA 2013 is to provide an overview of the new ways in which multilingual terminology is present in an ever-increasing networked society, and to pay special attention both to the methods applied in the conceptualization of domain knowledge and to the applications and tools that will meet the requirements of e-society. In this way, terminology, linguistics and knowledge engineering provide the basis on which many other disciplines develop their applications such as domain ontologies, natural language processing tools, multilingual knowledge-based tools and web-based linguistic applications. New approaches to the standardization and to the reuse and integration of different tools designed to facilitate work in institutions, companies and society in general will be welcome.


The TIA 2013 Conference aims to promote interdisciplinary research focusing on the intersection of different disciplines that deal with terminological aspects and knowledge engineering resources. Papers may address both theoretical questions and methodological aspects on these issues, as well as interdisciplinary approaches developed to facilitate convergence and co-operation in terminological aspects of importance to society.


For its 10th anniversary, TIA conference comes back to Villetaneuse, where the first TIA conference was held in 1995. TIA 2013 is being organized by the RCLN (Représentation des Connaissances et Langage Naturel) group of the LIPN lab at Paris 13 university.
