Call for Papers: “22nd Slovak Onomastic Conference”

The 22nd SLOVAK ONOMASTIC CONFERENCE entitled “PRODUCTION AND PERCEPTION OF ONYMIC SYSTEMS” will be held at the Trnava University in Trnava (Slovakia) from 5th to 7th September 2022.

The 22nd Slovak Onomastic Conference is organised by Ľudovít Štúr’s Institute of Linguistics Sciences, Slovak Linguistic Society (Slovak Academy of Sciences) and Slovak Commission for Onomastic Sciences.

Conference languages: Slavic languages, English, German.

Type of conference: hybrid (in-person and online).

Abstract submission deadline: registration form and the abstract are to be sent until 31st May 2022.

Given that onomastics is an interdisciplinary subject, interrelated with other linguistic and non-linguistic fields of study, we are happy to accept papers by colleagues working in non-linguistic disciplines who in their research encounter issues related to the formation and functioning of proper names.

The organisers of the 22nd Slovak Onomastic Conference support the international wave of solidarity motivated by the unwarranted Russian military invasion of Ukraine and unequivocally condemn this act of aggression and arbitrary demonstration of power by the current Russian leadership against the independent Ukrainian state, against democracy, and against human rights. As an expression of support for our Ukrainian colleagues who would like to attend the conference, we have decided not to require a conference fee from them. At the same time, we appreciate the personal courage of those Russian citizens who, despite the risk of harsh persecution, act in accordance with their conviction and publicly condemn the Russian aggression in Ukraine.

Please, find attached registration form in Slovak or in English.
