5th International Congress on Terminology and Knowledge Engineering
Innsbruck (Austria) 24-28 August 1999

organized by
Association for Terminology and Knowledge Transfer (GTW)

Objectives of the Congress

On behalf of the Association for Terminology and Knowledge Transfer -
Gesellschaft f=FCr Terminologie und Wissenstransfer (GTW) we are
pleased to announce the 5th International Congress on Terminology and
Knowledge Engineering TKE '99 which will be held on the campus of the
University of Innsbruck, Austria, between 24-28 August, 1999. In
continuation of the first four TKE Congresses in Trier (1987 and
1990), Cologne (1993) and Vienna (1996), TKE'99 will address
world-wide interests in the interdisciplinary methods of Terminology
Science, Information Science and Computer Science. It should
furthermore help achieve the "universal availability of information
and knowledge" via computerized methods and tools, open new horizons
for more efficient applications based upon this integration of
methodologies and elicit the interest and participation of experts
working in the fields that are gradually drawing nearer from the point
of theory and methodology such as

- Terminology research
- Knowledge engineering
- Language engineering
- Computational philosophy
- Classification theory
- Information & documentation
- Computer-assisted instruction/learning
- Computerized terminography
- Specialized translation
- Technical writing

We welcome submission of papers describing substantial, original and
unpublished research contributions in these fields. TKE '99 will be
divided into 8 sections concentrating on the following areas of
1. Knowledge Theory and Terminology
2. Knowledge Data Management
3. Multimedia and Terminology
4. Language Engineering and Terminology
5. Documentation and Terminology
6. World Wide Web and Terminology
7. Multilingualism and Terminology
8. Specialist Communication and Terminology

Authors will be asked to identify the sections to which their
submission corresponds. Contributions that do not fall into any of the
above areas but are nevertheless relevant to the field are also
welcome. The working language of the Congress is English. This refers
to the written contributions as well as to their oral presentation.
Authors are asked to provide an abstract (approx. 2 pages) of their
papers to the programme organizer by 15 October 1998, at the latest.
The title page is to show the title of the paper, the author's name,
address, phone number and fax number, and the section to which he/she
is planning to contribute. The abstracts should be sent preferably by
e-mail (peter -dot- sandrini -at- uibk -dot- ac -dot- at) (a submission form is available on
the TKE home page: or by mail (4 copies) or
fax. The abstract then undergoes a reviewing process carried out by
the Programming Committee and the section organizers.

By the end of November 1998 the authors will be informed about the
acceptance of their papers. Then they will have time until February
1999 to submit a full paper in A4 camera-ready format and on floppy
disk (approx. 10 pages for the session papers and 15 pages for the
keynotes), which will be processed for publication in the proceedings
and printed prior to the Congress. The proceedings will be available
for the participants at the beginning of the Congress.

Workshops / Tutorials

Proposals for Workshops and/or tutorials within the framework of the
Congress are welcomed and should be sent as soon as possible to the
programme organizer.
