| Meeting Description:
||The goal of this conference is to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the cooperation network VIRSU (Finno-Ugric Languages as Target Languages; http://www.univie.ac.at/virsu/), which has worked to connect researchers with an applied approach to Finno-Ugric languages since 1997. Currently, the network is facing new challenges. On the one hand, there is a growing need to create connections between applied-linguistic research conducted within Finno-Ugric studies and with other languages or language families. On the other hand, political changes in Europe, including the increasing mobility and immigration, make the teaching and learning of Finno-Ugric languages an even more acute issue. The jubilee conference will respond to these challenges and search for new avenues of research.
