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).
