Tesaurvai can extract, annotate and organize specialized terms taken from a collection of digitalized texts. Tesaurvai complies with the ISO thesaurus building standard and was developed by the VAI in conjunction with the Spanish National Research Council’s Institute of Documentary Studies on Science and Technology (formerly CINDOC).
Euralex is Europe’s most influential lexicographical congress. The InfoLex research group, based at the Universidad Pompeu Fabra’s College of Applied Linguistics is organizing the 2008 event, which will bring together professional lexicographers, publishers, researchers, specialists and anyone with an interest in dictionaries of any kind.

Tesaurvai’s key innovation is that it combines a terminology extractor capable of ordering and selecting from 1- to 10-word terms with ISO standard-compliant thesaurus building capabilities in the same tool. The extractor identifies the terms located in digital texts that are to be transferred to the thesaurus builder. The thesaurus is a systematized list of domain-representative terms.
Tesaurvai conforms to international thesaurus building and management standards and has several implementations. First, the tool can build thesauruses from scratch, through information extraction to term creation, edition and annotation. It is easy to use to establish relationships between terms and run basic and advanced word searches. Second, the Tesaurvai tool can import and export text thesauruses to XML files. Finally, it can build alphabetical and systematized indices, which can be exchanged for printing or exportation as reports.
Available as of 2008
The tool has been developed in Java and works on a database. Tesaurvai is compatible with any database manager equipped with Java Database (JDBC) connectivity.
It was developed as part of the “Cultural heritage document search based on multilingual technical resources” (Patrilex) project, supported by the Ministry of Education with the aim of generating a methodology and tools for building multilingual lexical resources.
Tesaurvai is now undergoing massive testing. As of July 2008 it will be available to any Internet user.

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
