Web interface for FlexiTerm

Supervised by Irena Spasic; Moderated by Jing Wu

Terms are words and phrases we use to refer to domain-specific concepts. FlexiTerm is a method for recognition of multi-word terms. We have developed FlexiTerm as an open-source software tool for automatic term recognition. The basic information about FlexiTerm together with its Java code is available via its web site: http://users.cs.cf.ac.uk/I.Spasic/flexiterm/. We are now looking to develop a web-based user interface to allow users to process their text with FlexiTerm using their web browser. For a basic idea of what functionality this web site should support, please see http://www.nactem.ac.uk/software/termine/, which provides demo of another term recognition method. In other words, a user should specify their input by providing a URL, uploading a file or copy-pasting text and access their output visualised in a web browser with appropriate highlighting in text as well as with a download link, which can allow them to further process the FlexiTerm output locally. The user interface should follow the theory and best practice as outlined in the book Designing the User Interface by Ben Shneiderman, whose basic principles unfortunately have been recently neglected on the Web.
