Materials of the 43rd Meeting of the Permanent International Altaistic Conference (PIAC), held in Lanaken in 2000, are available now: list of participants and programme.
The programme reflects, to a certain degree, the actual sequence of communications which occasionally deviates from the printed material.

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.
