Polyglot Conference

Polyglot Conference events started in Budapest in May 2013 and since then they take place in a different country every year. In 2014 in Novi Sad (Serbia), 2015 in New York, 2016 in Thessaloniki (Greece), and 2017 in Reykjavik. Attending these events, you would combine your passion for languages and travelling!

Who can participate?

Literally everyone! It doesn’t matter if you speak 10 or 1 language or if you speak them well or not. Go and enjoy the experience of listening people of all over of the world speaking several languages.

Where is it?

This year the polyglot conference will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It usually takes place in Universities, colleges or in cultural centres. If you are meant to go, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the country! Indeed, Ljubljana is considered the green capital of Europe and it’s also very cheap!


Dates are already public: 26-28 October 2018.

How is it organised?

There will be four separate tracks for papers and presentations, three related to “Diversity in Language” and one honouring Slovenian culture and regions.


The entire weekend costs 129 €, while only one day 89 €. If it seems expensive, don’t worry you can still take part in “Friday evening event” which costs 39 €.
