European Terminology Summit 2016


The European Association for Terminology (EAFT), in collaboration with TermCoord, is organizing the Eighth European Terminology Summit in Luxembourg on 14–15 November 2016.

In 2016, the EAFT celebrates its 20th anniversary – and it is also a Summit year. Therefore, the Summit will be a good opportunity to go back and look forward at the same time, to present both revisions of the themes of earlier Summits (to see what has happened since then) and visions of where terminology needs to go from there.

The overall topic for the summit is: “Visions and revisions”. The Summit will be composed around 8 sections that summarize the themes of the earlier Summits: Cooperation & Collaboration, Social Media, Quality Matters, Responsibility, Interaction and Diversity, Terminology Profile, State Of The Art/Domain Loss, Declaration.

The idea is that each section will contain at least a revision and a vision related to the thematic of the section. Some areas that might appear to be missing from the above (e.g. terminology training, terminology research, terminology standardization, terminology management, terminology tools) are in fact not missing, but rather they could appear in several sections.

There will also be open sessions, where professionals who want to share their experiences on the Summit topics can do so during a set time limit.
