Registration is open for the TKE (Terminology and Knowledge Engineering) Conference, themed 'Presenting terminology and knowledge engineering resources online: models and challenges'. This conference will be held in Fiontar, Dublin City University, Ireland, on 12-13 August 2010.

The invited talks are 'Cognitive aspects of designing, generating, and using domain ontologies', by Prof Gerhard Budin (University of Vienna), and 'How to build a termbase for 500,000 users (and live to tell the story)' by Michal Boleslav Mechura and Brian Ó Raghallaigh (DCU).

As well as two full days of papers and discussion, there will be pre- and post-conference workshops on the following themes:
