the 61st Annual Meeting of the PIAC took place in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, in 2018. With more than 150 participants it definitely is one of the biggest PIAC meetings ever held; the Meeting was part of a series of other, more prominent high-level international events, among them the Third World Nomad Games, the celebrations for the 27th Independence Day of Kyrgyzstan, as well as the 6th Meeting of the Turkic Council, as it was then called.
The introduction contains links to the list of participants, the programme as well the presentations.
