1. Tools:
Which CAT tools are good for whom?
What are the best approaches to create a database that follows best practices and is tailored to individual needs?
How can technology make your work-life as easy as possible?
This group can also make use of the computer lab for demonstrations.

2. Skills:
What kind of skills are required of a terminologist?
How do we identify these skills, use and enhance them?
How can one qualify as a terminologist and promote a career in the field?

3. Glossary
How does one create a terminology database or a glossary?
What approaches and tools can be used to analyze corpora and to identify and select “good” terms?
What are the criteria for writing useful and correct definitions or collecting meaningful contexts?
