Events with Infoterm as organizer, co-organizer or supporter
Soon after its foundation in 1971 Infoterm engaged in the organization of conferences, symposia, workshops and other events in different parts of the world. Some of them, like the International Infoterm Symposia in 1976 (1st), 1986 (2nd), 1991 (3rd) and 1998 (4th) and others led to the publication of proceedings. The following events have been initiated by Infoterm and have since then become regular events, such as
- International Terminology Summer School (TSS) as of 1981
- Terminology and Knowledge Engineering (TKE) as of 1987
- conferences in conjunction with ISO/TC 37 as of 2006
Initiated by Infoterm in 1981, the Terminology Summer School (TSS) has ever since become a model for similar activities in other countries and world regions. After 1999 TSS is organized by TermNet together with a Management Group composed of prominent university teachers and researchers in the field of terminology. Since then, TSS has been alternately held at the Cologne University of Applied Sciences, Germany, and the Center for Translation Studies of the University of Vienna, Austria.
In 1987, Infoterm organized the first international Conference on Terminology and Knowledge Engineering
(TKE), which since then has been organized every 3 years by the Association for Terminology and Knowledge Engineering (GTW).

Conferences in conjunction with ISO/TC 37 meetings
Until 2008, Infoterm used to organize, in conjunction with the ISO/TC 37 annual meetings, a conference on a specific subject with the aim to bring together experts working on hot topics in terminology and language resources standardization, on the on hand, and interested users from industry, business and academia, on the other hand.
In 2009, the Instituto Colombiano de Normas Técnicas y Certificación (ICONTEC) hosted the ISO/TC 37 meetings in Bogotá (Colombia) from 9 to 14 August, and on 15 August 2009 also organized the International Conference on Terminology Standardization and Application in Industry.
In 2010, the ISO/TC 37 meetings which took place in Dublin (Ireland) from 15 to 20 August were preceded by several TC 37-related workshops including one on 'ISO/CDB – A model for future integrated and federated content repositories', organized by Infoterm in cooperation with Infoterm Member GTW within the framework of the TKE Conference 2010 held at the Dublin City University.
In 2011, Infoterm co-organized the First International Conference on Terminology, Language, and ContentResources (LaRC 2011) in Seoul (Korea) from 11 to 12 June. It included the celebration of th 40thh anniversary of Infoterm and 60th anniversary of ISO/TC 37 and was followed by the ISO/TC 37 meeting week from 13 to 18 June 2011.
