Good News for everybody who loves terminology and languages:

The FedTerm project consortium* , and TermNet, the International Network for Terminology, are going to organise a Pan-European Terminology Summit in Iceland in March 2022, within the FedTerm Project:

The Pan-European terminology summit will take place from 28-29 March 2022 in Iceland, as hybrid event.

Terminology experts are cordially invited as keynote speakers and panelists, and we do hope that you will be able to come to Iceland in person.

Short description of the Summit

It will be a pan-European summit, with showcases and best practice examples from Nordic countries.

The terminology summit is about terminology resources, management and terminology policies in so-called “lesser used languages”.

The focus will be on terminology in Nordic countries, such as Iceland, Greenland, Sweden, Denmark, the Baltic States, and the Gaelic language community in Ireland and the UK.

However, also Slovenian is a “lesser used language”, so that Fedterm partner JSI will present their national Slovenian project RSDO.

The European dimension will be emphasized, to promote EuroTermBank and FedTerm.Big Euroepan players, such as IATE, EAFTE, etc., and big local players, such as Foras na Gaeilge in Ireland, NordTerm in Sweden, DanTerm in Denmark, etc. will be addressed.

Key note speeches (30 minutes) and round tables / panels (60 minutes) will be organized on-site and online.

It would be a great pleasure and honour to have you as speaker at the Pan-European Terminology Summit in March 2022.

The summit will be a hybrid event and is scheduled for
2 days (28 and 29 March 2022):

  • 1,5 days for the Terminology Summit,
  • 0,5 days for the FedTerm Dissemination Workshop.

35 participants on-site is considered as a success. Number of online participants envisaged: 45.

Please forward this information and invitation to terminology and language experts you know – in Nordic countries, Ireland and other countries/regions of the Gaelic language community, both as speakers and participants.
