Meeting Description:

The Department of Modern Languages and the Department of Finnish, Finno-Ugrian and Scandinavian Studies invite you to participate in the international conference of Baltic linguistics, continuing the conference cycle Baltic Days and White Nights started in St Petersburg in June 2008. The main theme of the conference will be contacts between the Baltic and the Uralic (Finno-Ugrian) languages - both from a synchronic and a diachronic perspective. Abstracts on other aspects of Baltic linguistics will also be considered.


The participation fee is 30 Euros that will cover 3 coffee breaks and the conference dinner, as well as the necessary conference materials. The lunches are not included in the fee, but there are several relatively modest price lunch restaurants near to Mets├Ątalo.

Call for Papers:


Please send your abstract (2500-4000 characters) to santeri.junttilahelsinki.fi by 20 December 2011. Include your name, affiliation (university or other institution) and e-mail address. Abstracts are welcome in English and the Baltic languages. All abstracts will be reviewed by an international committee. We will notify you about the acceptance of your paper by 1 February 2012.


Participants will be given 20 minutes for their presentations, followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. The choice of language should be made by the participant: we kindly ask you to aim to an optimal comprehension of your presentation.
