Meeting Description:

Global Conference: Creating Cultural Synergies – Setting Intercultural
Competence to Work in a Changing World

Globalization, having brought people in contact with one another at a
yet unprecedented scale, has also posed a general challenge to
traditionally upheld concepts of race, gender, nation and class. For
those living in this rapidly changing cultural landscape,
intercultural competence has become a core skill. The Global
Conference in Salzburg aims to bring researchers and practitioners
from interdisciplinary fields and settings together to discuss and
share research, theory and best practices and foster a dialogue on
issues related to setting intercultural theories to work.

Call for Papers:

The conference will have sessions for talks, posters and workshops. We
welcome papers in the following categories related to the broader
theme of intercultural studies:

- Interculturality and Leadership in Business
- Intercultural Competence and Empowerment
- Language, Politics and Intercultural Communication
- Intercultural Competence in Understanding Religion

It is expected that talks should not last longer than 20 minutes.
Speakers whose papers are accepted have to submit a full paper (10
pages, 20.000 - 25.000 words) by 1st November 2011, for publication.
Posters will focus on state-of-the-art research in intercultural

Workshops (to be held in German and in English in parallel sessions)
will concern themselves with the following topics:

- Intercultural Empowerment
- Intercultural Education
- Intercultural Coaching

Proposals (400-600 words) should be emailed by 15th April, 2011 to Dr.
Birgit Breninger: birgit.breningersbg.ac.at

Please state on the proposal whether you want to give a talk, do a
poster or hold a workshop.
