How to participate

Participants

You can register as a participant and come to Bratislava for the whole Gathering or for a part of it and simply enjoy the speeches, the informal talks in between the talks, common lunches and dinners and a rich social program.

To participate to the Polyglot Gathering, please fill in the registration form.

Lecturer

The Polyglot Gathering is a place where participants share their know-how with one another. We will soon have an official call for papers so you can present your ideas for talks and workshops yourself.

Volunteers

The Polyglot Gathering is an event for polyglots, run by polyglots, and it is the result of many hours of work of a lot of people. We welcome help from any volunteers who can help us, whether it’s before, during or after the gathering, be it for just a few hours or every day. It is not required that you speak Slovak or live in Slovakia. If you are willing to help in any way, please fill in the questionnaire which will soon appear here and we’ll get in touch 🙂 Thank you!
