Dear everyone,

This is the second general information email about the West European
Finno-Ugristic Students Meeting (WEFUM) to be held from the 31st of
May until the 3rd of June 2007 in Groningen, the Netherlands. The
meeting provides and opportunity for students of Finno-Ugristics to
meet each other, discuss Finno-Ugristic themes, share their views and
have Finno-Ugristic fun.

The event will be hosted by the students' association at the
department of Finno-Ugric languages and cultures of the university of
Groningen, Kota>Ház.

Participation costs are 50 euros. This includes dinner on Friday,
Saturday and Sunday and covers most of the practical costs.
Accommodation will be as much as possible at students' homes, so this
won't cost anything except maybe a few euro's for breakfast. Please
let us know whether you'll be participating as soon as possible,
preferably before the first of April.


For registration we need to know the following:

Home city/university?
Presentation? If yes, what will be the topic and how much time do you need/want?
When you will be arriving, we may be able to pick you up at the
airport in Amsterdam.
Anything else, such as if you need help with getting a visa.

Please email this information to kotahaz[at]gmail.com, before the
first of April, if possible.
