CHAT 2012: The Second Workshop on the Creation, Harmonization and Application of Terminology Resources @ TKE, Madrid

TaaS was one of the three EU projects – co-organisers of “CHAT 2012: the Second Workshop on Creation, Harmonisation and Application of Terminology Resources” held on June 22 in Madrid. The workshop was organised by FP7 project TaaS, ICT PSP project META-NORD (Baltic and Nordic Branch of the European Open Linguistic Infrastructure) and PF7 TTC project (Terminology Extraction, Translation Tools and Comparable Corpora). The workshop programme was published on the workshop page as well as printed and distributed among workshop participants.

CHAT 2012 continued a series of meetings that started as the first workshop CHAT 2011 in Riga in May 2011. CHAT 2012 aimed at bringing together academic and industrial players in the terminology field and attracting holders of terminology resources. The workshop also focused 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 consolidation, harmonization and distribution of terminology resources, as well as their practical application in various domains.

The TaaS project was widely presented during the workshop by three presentations:

  • Terminology as a Service (TILDE)
  • Terminological Needs of Language Workers: a User Group Analysis for the TaaS Platform (IIM)
  • EuroTermBank – Towards Dedicated Terminology Services for European Linguistic Infrastructure (TILDE)
The research within the project TaaS leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013), grant agreement no 296312
