Inspiring Conference on Ontology, Terminology and Text Mining
The TKE 2014 Conference took place 19-21 June in Berlin. Coreon had the
pleasure to co-host and organize this year's international conference on
terminology and knowledge engineering. ~70 participants from all around the
world attended two parallel tracks in the main conference. Each day started
with a keynote speak – on Thursday, it was Khurshid Ahmad from the
Trinity College Dublin, followed on Friday by Kyo Kageura, from the University of Tokyo.
Everyone was very impressed by the brilliant equipment and conference room facilities at
DIN – the German Institute for Standardization – where the event took place.
Thursday evening we all enjoyed a nice get together and conference dinner at the
stylish restaurant 3 Schwestern, in Berlin-Kreuzberg's historic Bethanienhaus.
The conference was complemented on Saturday by a workshop on ISO language codes.
Almost all presentation slides are now available on the
as well as the conference proceedings.
