Meeting Description: The Colloquium serves as a real possibility to give an insight into the work done by scholars and for those who are enthusiasts of proverbs. On the other hand it will be an important lookout spot for linguists, historians, translators, folklorists, paremiographers, etc. to the fields of each other and to the work the devotees of proverbs have done. We can speak of an international heritage. The paremiological emphasis will be clearly visible in the aims of the Colloquium:

O1 - To create an intercultural dialogue by means of groups in wide networks
O2 - To discuss new trends in our communicational and technological epoch
O3 - To increase initiatives for life-long-learning strategies in education
