Their program covers a wealth of varied activities, from guest lectures to accepted communications and even a Young Researcher Prize will be awarded!

TOTh 2017 is divided into three main parts: TOTh Conferences, TOTh Training sessions and TOTh Workshops.

The aim is to create a forum for exchange and learning. TOTh 2017 will encourage discussion on the terminology and ontology fields, will tackle problems, at both theoretical and practical level and provide solutions to them. Language professionals and researches will gather together, as well as remarkable personalities in in the disciplines associated with terminology (translation, lexicography, knowledge engineering, information sciences).

We can only highly recommend that you attend this 11th edition. From our experience, we can tell it is worthwhile. In 2015, the Terminology Coordination Unit of the European Parliament hosted the Terminology and Ontology, Theories and applications (TOTh) Workshop, as part of the 9th TOTh Conference edition. We were honoured by the presence of special guests such as Christophe Roche, Rute Costa, Dardo De Vecchi and other experts like Kara Warburton, who had to fly to Luxembourg from very far away.

If you cannot wait to attend, you can register here and from TermCoord, we wish you a very pleasant Conference in an extraordinary location surrounded by the Alps and next to the largest natural lake in France.
