TOTH 2015. Call for papers
The forthcoming edition of the international conference “Terminology & Ontology: Theories and applications (TOTh)” will be held on 4 and 5 June 2015 at University of Savoie, in Chambéry (France) with the support of the French Ministry of Culture (DGLFLF) and of the European Association for Terminology.
The TOTh conferences aim to bridge the gap between terminology and ontology by highlighting the contributions that the one makes to the other and by opening up new perspectives for both theoretical and practical developments. A one-and-a-half-day training session takes place before the conference on 3 and 4 June, dedicated this year to ontology building for terminology purposes.
Check out the relevant information about the forthcoming edition:
Training: 2 and 3 June 2015
Conference: 4 and 5 June 2015

Dictionary of clinical research on drugs by TERMCAT
This dictionary includes more than seven hundred terms belonging to the field of clinical trials that have the drug as a central core, especially those related to the methodology and biostatistics, pharmacology, bioethics, epidemiology and public health, research and scientific publication, and the legal regulation and quality control. The work is completed by a brief selection of terms that designate the main agents involved in the various phases of a clinical trial. Each entry includes the denominations in Catalan and the equivalent in Spanish and English, in addition to a definition and, if necessary, additional notes.
The European Association for Terminology is a non-profit professional organisation for the terminology sector in Europe. It is designed to further plurilingualism through terminology, to provide a European platform for promoting and professionalising terminological activities and improving awareness of them, and to liaise and cooperate actively with relevant organisations, associations and institutions.
Do not hesitate to send us comments or suggestions that could help us accomplish our mission or that could draw our attention to any forthcoming event or activity. We would be pleased to include them in the next issue as well as in our agenda.
