Meeting Description:

VocUM, the first multidisciplinary conference in translation studies, linguistics, literatures and
modern languages, will take place on November 20-21, 2014 at the Carrefour des arts et des
sciences of Université de Montréal (Québec, Canada). Graduate students and researchers working
on any discipline related to language are invited to submit an abstract. Undergraduate students'
propositions will also be considered.

The main goal of this event is to create a space at Université de Montréal for graduate students
who wish to gain more experience in public presentations, and to allow them to publish their
research at the same time. In order to promote a greater diffusion and sharing of knowledge, and
to establish a contact between students of different universities in related domains, we wish to
invite members of the international academic community.

Call for Papers:

Presentations will be accepted in French and English. However, we strongly encourage that
people who can present in French do so, due to the multidisciplinary nature of the conference
and because it will take place in a French speaking university. Moreover, researches in
Hispanic and Germanic Studies can be presented in Spanish and German, respectively.

Prices will be awarded to the best presentations.

Abstracts should not exceed 250 words and must be submitted through the application form
available on the following website: www.vocum.ca. All abstracts will be reviewed by a
committee comprising at least two students and a professor of the appropriate discipline.
Presentations will last 20 minutes and will be followed by a 10 minutes period of questions.
