We also welcome papers dealing with language contact – both past and present.

A period of twenty minutes will be allotted for each paper, followed by a
ten-minute discussion period. Abstracts must be received by March 1, 2010.
Abstracts should be no more than 1 page typewritten. Please attach a cover
sheet with your name, institutional affiliation, and accurate contact

evaluated by an international committee.

This conference is being arranged in commemoration of the first professorship
of Baltic Languages, established 1970, at Stockholm University. The chair,
placed at the Department for Slavic and Baltic Languages, was held by noted
scholar in Baltic linguistics Velta Rūķe-Draviņa (1917-2003) until her
retirement in 1983. A lecture will be given in her honour.

Conference fee: 30 €
