jornada


Explanation:
We use "taller" and people understand it, but in literature written by a native speaker, it would rarely be the first choice.

"jornada sobre la prevención de HIV para homosexuales latinos"

Target could also be translated more strongly, such as "jornada sobre la prevención de HIV especialmente para homosexuales latinos", "jornada sobre la prevención de HIV con enfoque en homosexuales latinos", etc.

disagree  Dito: This is more a conference/seminar type activity with presentations etc. Not necessarily a workshop
1 hr

agree  silviaa: 'jornada' cuando hay solo ponencias, 'tller' cuando hay participacion activa del publico
1 hr
  -> I work with a group that organizes all kinds of events. We only use "taller" when organizing hands-on teaching sessions

agree  Andrea Bullrich: I agree with Silvia, jornada is different, at least in Argentina : )

10 hrs
Seminario


Explanation:
Just another version. In Chile, a "taller" is smaller than a "seminario". A seminario might be held at an university or offered by a very prestigious organization. Also, a taller is intended for a few people, while a Seminario might be for many people, for in the Taller people have to do some "real work". A semanario is usually made up by lectures and only some practical work... usually, but not always. This is why a "seminario" is more important than a taller.

Context, once again, will have to make the difference.
