TOTh 2016

The TOTh community was created ten years ago and, ever since, has drawn together researchers, teachers, trainers, practitioners, users and industrialists whose interests concern terminology and, in a more general way, the links between language and knowledge in the context of our discipline.

TOTh is open to all streams of thought, and sets out to provide a forum of exchange and sharing where problems are presented along with solutions and feedback from experience, on both the theoretic and the applied planes, as well as new tendencies and perspectives in the disciplines associated with terminology (translation, lexicography, knowledge engineering, the information sciences …).

The TOTh international community comprises more than 20 different nationalities and the most prominent personalities in the domain. The official languages are French and English. The annual events that TOTh organises include a conference, a training session, and a Workshop.

Under the scientific patronage of an international program committee, the TOTh conferences cover an extensive field of studies and investigations bearing on terminology and/or ontology through an opening talk and communications. The conferences are scheduled every year at the University of Savoie (France) on two days in early June and, since 2011, they have included a disputatio and a Young Researcher prize.

On the occasion of the 10th TOTh conference the focus will be on these two major turning points, i.e. the swing to linguistics and the conceptual renewal which Terminology has experienced over the last decades.
