Teminological Seminar in Zagreb
The Institute of Croatian Language and Linguistics and the European Association for Terminology (EAFT) organized a terminological seminar under the title Applications of Cognitive Terminological Theories in Terminology Management in Zagreb on 27th and 28th September 2013.
More than 70 terminologist professionals from all over Europe attended the event. The seminar concentrated on aspects of recent cognitive terminological theories and their application in practical terminology work. In the first part of the seminar four leading representatives of new approaches in terminology theory – M. Teresa Cabré, Pamela Faber, Rita Temmerman and Christophe Roche – presented their work and its possible application in terminology management. The second part of the seminar dealt with the integration of terminological and linguistic theories in terminographical work, based on experience in working on the national term bases Rikstermbanken, Cercaterm and Struna.
The presentations and photos from the terminological seminar are already available.
The seminar was organized under the patronage of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts. Official languages of the conference will be English, French and Croatian.
