We are pleased to announce that submissions are now open for the 3rd edition of VocUM, which will take place at the Carrefour des arts et des sciences of the Université de Montréal (Québec, Canada) on November 17 and 18, 2016. VocUM is an annual international conference organized by students of the Université de Montréal, all from different fields of study relating to language. It is the only interdisciplinary conference dedicated to language in Montreal.

Submissions in French and English are accepted. In order to resist the current trend toward English hegemony in scientific research, VocUM encourages the dissemination of knowledge in French. Yet, contributors working in the fields of Spanish and German studies can present their research in Spanish or German, respectively. We may also consider submissions from undergraduate students.

Proposals (250 words maximum) must be submitted using the appropriate form, available on the VocUM website. Anonymous peer evaluation of the proposals will be carried out by a scientific committee. The presentations must be 20 minutes long, followed by a 10 minute question and answer session.
