               International Workshop
    Acquiring and representing multilingual, specialized lexicons:
                the case of biomedicine


                May 23, 2006, Genoa, Italy
    http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2006/rubrique.php3?id_rubrique=6

     (LREC 2006 preconference workshop)


DEADLINE for Abstract Submissions: February 20th 2006


BACKGROUND

The development of general, multilingual lexicons and dictionaries has
received much interest (see, e.g., projects EuroWordNet or Papillon).
In contrast, less attention has been given to multilingual lexicons
and dictionaries in specialized domains, where the focus has been put
instead on terminological products such as thesauri and
classifications.  The need nevertheless exists for large, shared,
multilingual lexicons and dictionaries which support natural language
processing in specialized domains.  Medicine, with terminologies
ranging above a million terms, is a case in point: only few
specialized lexicons exist for this domain, English being as usual the
best served.  This workshop will examine how specialized lexicons, in
particular in biomedicine and beyond English, can be acquired,
represented, and linked across languages.

It is endorsed by the European Network of Excellence "Semantic
Interoperability and Data Mining in Biomedicine" (NoE 507505),
Workpackage 20, "Multilingual Medical Lexicon".


TOPICS for submission will include the following, non-exhaustive list:

 - building specialized lexicons
 - standards for sharing multilingual lexicons
 - methods for acquiring and cross-linking specialized lexicons of
   different languages
 - specific issues in representing specialized, technical lexicons
   (e.g., neoclassical compounds, Latin words, etc.)

While medicine is expected to be the main focus of the workshop, work
on other specialized domains is welcome too.

  We expect short papers of max 3000 words describing research
  addressing one of the above topics, to be submitted as .doc or PDF
  documents by email to the following address:
