the Permanent International Altaistic Conference (PIAC) looks back over more than 60 years of near-continuous meetings since 1958 (due to Covid-19, the year 2020 was the only year without a PIAC Meeting). During this time, numerous scholars, many of them faithful PIAC members over many years, have contributed reports which were then published in scholarly journals.
The importance of these reports cannot be underestimated; not only do they reflect the importance the authors attached to the field of Altaic studies and the PIAC Meetings, but also these reports often contain detailed lists of participants, presentations and keywords of discussions. The information contained in these reports thus complements the information contained in Meeting materials like programmes, lists of participants, etc., and serves as a means to confirm these materials.

the 36th Annual Meeting of the Permanent International Altaistic Conference (PIAC) was held in Almaty, Kazakhstan, in June 1993 and was hosted by the Centre of Oriental Studies of National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
The programme of this meeting is now available, with the following structure: The first half of the programme lists the general daily schedule in English, while the second half of the programme lists all communications, however in Russian. The total is 87 contributions, so this was definitely one of the larger PIAC meetings.
