Created in 2003 from the Condillac Research Group in Knowledge Engineering at the University of Savoie (Equipe de Recherche Technologique Condillac No. 20032288, French Ministry of Research), Condillac is today an international research group whose interests concern Terminology and Ontology, and, in a more general way, the links between Language and Knowledge. Condillac is in charge of the organization of the TOTh International Conference on Terminology and Ontology.

Condillac brings together researchers coming from different disciplines (terminology, artificial intelligence, linguistics, computer science, philology, digital humanities) and different institutions from different countries (France, China, Greece).
