The success of the EAFT Summit 2016


In its latest newsletter, the European Association for Terminology (EAFT) includes a special mention to the VIII European Terminology Summit presented on 14th and 15th of November in one of the European Parliament buildings in Luxembourg. Organised together with TermCoord, EAFT has wanted to emphasise the success of the #EAFTSummit2016 in its last publication “fresh out from the oven”.


VIII EAFT Terminology Summit in Luxembourg – by the European Association for Terminology

EAFT, in collaboration with TermCoord, organized the Eighth Terminology Summit in Luxembourg on November 14-15, 2016.

In 2016, EAFT is celebrating its 20th anniversary and it is also a Summit year. Therefore, the Summit has been a good opportunity to look 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 here.

The Summit page is already updated with all your presentations, the abstracts and a photo gallery. Contribute by adding your own pics to the album!

We would welcome any feedback about the organisation and contents of the Summit. We would also like to offer you the opportunity to publish a short article about the subject of your contribution. Please send the text to
