The 3rd International Workshop organized by the LETiSS Centre (Languages of Europe - Typology, History and Sociolinguistics) will be held in Pavia from Thursday, October 3 to Friday, October 4, 2013.

Under the guide of four leading specialists, the event will tackle and address the manifold and challenging issues related to translation, translating languages and linguistic theory.

No tuition fee is required! The Workshop is open to students, Ph.D. candidates, Post-docs, researchers, translators, and language teachers.

Furthermore, 10 advanced students in linguistics and related fields will be selected by the Organizing Committee, and LETiSS will cover their accommodation expenses (see Call for application and presentation proposal). The main criterion will be the degree of relatedness/pertinence of their research interests with the topics of the School.
