The idea of the Glossary of Decentralised Technosocial Systems arose from the need to define terms that - while being relevant to current discussions about power of/in/over digital cultures - remain ill-defined and contested. The definition of the scope, content and format of the Glossary triggered many questions: what is the role and usefulness of glossaries in the study of legal, political, societal implications of internet-based technologies? How is it possible to reconcile diversity of voices and interdisciplinarity with the need to claim "authority" in specific fields of knowledge? Can glossaries carry a political dimension and accelerate (as opposed to slow down) change in discourse?

To find possible answers to such questions, we looked at efforts that share some similarities to ours - projects that were inspirational to our initiative, and projects we discovered along the way. On the occasion of the launch of the Glossary, we invite these projects to discuss how they have addressed, solved or simply thought about these and other questions posed by the fascinating yet problematic task of organizing knowledge.

This roundtable brings together glossaries, encyclopedias or other types of projects that, through different formats and sizes, seek to systematize, organize, update and coalesce discursive fields of knowledge. After a brief overview of each project, we will engage in a structured confrontation asking questions relating to authority, interdisciplinarity, diversity and temporal evolution of glossaries and encyclopedias in times of fast and ubiquitous digital transformation.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
