The conference organizers invite scholarly papers which investigate the interrelationships and interactions between the countries and cultures of Central Europe and the English-Speaking World in any walk of life including the arts and sciences, languages and literatures, history and economics, politics and sociology. The interdisciplinary conference—which is organized by three Central European institutions of higher education with a significant network of international connections—is designed to bring together primarily but not at all exclusively PhD students and young scholars whose main professional aim is to build an intellectual bridge of better understanding between Central Europe and the English-Speaking countries.

Participants of the conference will have the opportunity to experience and/or take part in some traditional Hungarian cultural events.
