JIAMCATT 2015 will be hosted by United Nations Headquarters in New York, USA, 8-10 April 2015. Invitations to all JIAMCATT Members were emailed on 9 December 2014. Members who joined after that date can download copies of the invitation from the site. Official invitations are also being distributed to all IAMLADP representatives through the IAMLADP Secretariat.

There was an error in the JIAMCATT invitation in English: the date of the meeting was stated as 2014 and not 2015. Despite carefully checking the text, it slipped through nonetheless. Apologies. The dates of JIAMCATT 2015 are indeed 8-10 April 2015. The French text was correct.

Next milestones: 15 January 2015: "Online registration for JIAMCATT 2015 opens", 23 February 2015: "Deadline for proposals", 1 March 2015: "Publication of draft agenda"

JIAMCATT 2014 was hosted by the Council of Europe (CoE) in Strasbourg, France, 23-25 April 2014. Its Conclusions and Recommendations are available here.

What is JIAMCATT ?

Created in June 1987 at the United Nations Office at Geneva, the Joint Inter-Agency Meeting on Computer-Assisted Translation and Terminology, renamed in April 2006 to International Annual Meeting on Computer-Assisted Translation and Terminology (JIAMCATT), provides its partners with a forum for debate, exchange of expertise and cooperation in the fields of computer-assisted terminology and translation, interpretation and documentation retrieval. It works to establish a proprietary terminology and information repository common to all participating organizations.

To this end, JIAMCATT intends to enhance exchanges among languages services of international organizations and national bodies in order to promote the pooling of the partners' terminology resources to make them accessible to all in electronic form.

Today, JIAMCATT membership includes partners from most international organizations, as well as from various national institutions active in the field of terminology and translation.

If you wish to join JIAMCATT as a partner and have access to the common multilingual terminology resources available on the restricted site, you must first request a user ID and a password.
