The twentieth Salos Summer School of Linguistics Academia Grammaticorum Salensis Vigesima will be held between July 23 and 29 in Salos, Rokiškis District. This time the topics of lectures and papers will centre around research problems connected with the Baltic languages.
This year the school is funded by the Lithuanian Academic Scheme for International Cooperation in Baltic Studies. Attendants from centres of Baltic studies will have all costs of travel, accommodation and board covered from this project. For attendants not delegated by centres of Baltic studies the participation fee is 120 EUR (100 EUR for members of the association “Academia Salensis” as well as for graduate and undergraduate students).
We will welcome 15 participants from foreign centres of Baltic studies and 15 from Lithuanian educational institutions.
Registration is open till June 1.
As the number of fully funded places is limited, please tell us in the registration form what motivates you to attend the Salos Summer School.
As in previous years, attendants will have a possibility to present papers based on their research. Topics should be connected with Baltic studies.
Please feel welcome to register! Link for registration >
Notification of acceptance will be sent by e-mail before June 15.
Attendants of the summer school will be accommodated in the Salos manor, in the same building where the lectures are held. The number of available rooms is limited so attendants will have to share rooms. The number of beds per room ranges from 2 to 10. The rooms are plain but clean and kept in order. Toilets and showers are shared.
There are no restaurants or cafés in the neighbourhood, so full board (three meals daily) is provided by the organizers (the cost is included in the attendance fee). The food is not posh but tasty and prepared with love by local women from Salos, for whom this has already become a tradition. When completing the registration form please indicate whether you have special wishes (vegetarian and the like) – we hope we will be able to satisfy your needs. The village boasts two shops where you can buy sweets, snacks and drinks.
