Created in 2007, the TOTh Conferences bring together researchers and professionals interested in terminology and ontology, and, more generally in the links between language and knowledge.

TOTh is open to all streams of thought, and sets out to provide a forum of exchange and sharing where problems are presented along with solutions and feedback from experience, on both the theoretic and the applied planes, as well as new tendencies and perspectives in the disciplines associated with terminology, ontology and their applications to digital humanities and cultural heritage, bio-medicine, finance, industrial applications and so on.

The annual events that TOTh organizes include a conference, a training session, and a workshop organised by different academic and research institutions based on the bids received.
