TOTh-TKE 2017 Vienna Workshop

Workshop TOTh-TKE:
Theoretical Foundations of Terminology Science and Applications
Vienna, Austria, 24 June 2017
Description of the Workshop
Terminology is governed by two fundamental ISO standards. ISO 1087 defines the vocabulary of terminology, whereas ISO 704 defines and describes terminology work principles and methods. The latest works in terminology science, e.g. on the operationalization of terminologies for IT applications, have raised a number of issues (linguistic, epistemological, logical, and
computational). This is the reason why the ISO working group in charge of these standards (WG 3 of TC 37/SC 1) decided in 2014 to revise them.
This workshop will focus on the theoretical foundations of terminology science and applications. Particular attention will be paid to the current ISO standards and their capabilities to meet the challenges of the digital world, but also to more recent theories from both linguistic and conceptual points of view (e.g. ontology for terminology). Individual topics and discussions may be based on or reach beyond recent and current issues in international standardization.
– Topic 1: To what extent are ISO terminology principles adapted to the information society? [Moderator: Christophe Roche]
– Topic 2: How deep a classification of designations do we need for terminology science and applications? [Moderator: Georg Löckinger]
– Topic 3: What is the role of ISO terminology standards in fostering multilingual communication for international commerce, in particular with regard to micro-content concept representations? [Moderator: Juan Carlos Díaz Vásquez]
