EUROCALL Gathering August 2020

See EUROCALL website for official information

The Gathering will take place on 20th and 21st August 2020 and will consist of online workshops, SIG events and poster awards and a virtual party. Plenaries will take place on both days.  Our first Plenary speaker is Professor Vincent Hendricks, University of Copenhagen and our Graham Davies Keynote by Professor John Gillespie, Ulster University will take place on Day two.

At the gathering posters will be displayed online with opportunities to comment and vote.

There will also be an option for those of you who had abstracts accepted to record your presentation (15-minute time slots) and we will be making these available on a new EUROCALL You Tube channel. We will send those who would like assistance with the recordings a link to a sign-up sheet with time slots (someone will be present in an online room to help you record your talk at the date and time you have chosen). We will also send guidelines to all those who wish to prepare their own recording.

We cannot, however, offer the option of Q&A sessions linked to the recordings. If you share your details in your recording, interested colleagues will be able to get in touch with you directly.  The EUROCALL Executive will be in touch with those who have had abstracts accepted to allow them to register their interest in this process.

In accordance with the constitution, and given the current COVID crisis, the Executive has proposed that this year’s elections be postponed until next year. Any objections should be sent to the secretary by 25th June 2020.

Registration

The registration fee will be EURO 65 which will also buy you an online membership for a year.  Registration will be free to those who have renewed or already purchased and annual membership. Please note the subscription rate of EURO 65 is open to everyone.

To register for an online membership fee at the reduced rate, follow the steps below:

  • Please visit the EUROCALL website to subscribe. You will find the membership join page here: https://www.eurocall-languages.org/site/subscribe_form.php
  • Simply select either the retired or student option at 65 euro. Complete the registration form and put an X in any of the boxes that are not applicable to you. The 65 euro buttons state that they are for ‘retired’ or ‘student’ members but for the EUROCALL Gathering event in August we are opening this rate to all those who wish to subscribe.
    Please note - There is not a separate button to select for the Gathering rate.
  • Follow the process through to payment.

Further information on the Gathering will be sent to members and to our community via EUROCALL social media channels when details are finalised. There will be an opportunity to sign up for sessions and you will receive an update on this in due course.
