Report on the 27th International Congress of Onomastic Sciences
A 27th ICOS Congress was originally planned to be hosted by Krakow in August 2020. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was eventually organized digitally between 23–27 August 2021. Its central theme was Onomastics in interaction with other branches of sciences. More than 250 participants represented over 50 countries at the conference. In addition to plenary and section presentations, the schedule included three symposia focusing on the onomastics of the three countries organizing the event (Poland, Czechia, and Slovakia) and a panel discussion on place names and open data. Various ICOS bodies and working groups also held their meetings. The General Assembly of ICOS elected, among others, the Governing Body for the upcoming period with Katalin Reszegi as its President and selected Helsinki as the host of the 28th ICOS Congress due in 2024. This meeting will focus on the sustainability of names, naming and onomastics.
