The purpose of the conference is to take into account the activities in the field of education, research and the use of technical languages and to identify the problematic areas relevant from the point of view of the language strategy and to examine whether these areas are or are not covered by the ongoing activities. In the latter case, research and development could play a guiding role besides their organising function. The topic of the conference is the Hungarian technical language, the use of technical language (and other languages used by Hungarians for technical purposes) but we are looking forward to the participation of not only applied linguists but also individuals and institutions that are directly or indirectly involved in the training and further training of young native speakers of Hungarian and in the use of the Hungarian language within the framework of various technical activities.
