Friday, September 27, 2013 - 09:00 to Saturday, September 28, 2013 - 21:00
In autumn, 2013, the Language Centre of the University of Tartutogether with the Latvian Language Agency and Lithuanian Ministry of Education and Research is organizing the First Baltic Student Conference celebrating the European Language day and Lithuania holding the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. 
In October 2012, the University of Tartu organized the First Baltic Student Day in Tartu, Estonia, which brought together students from the University of Tartu, the University of Latvia and Vilnius University. 
This event gave the students, who are all studying the languages and cultures of other Baltic countries, an opportunity to meet each other and share their experiences. The Second Baltic Student Day was held in February 2013 at the University of Latvia in Riga, and the Third Baltic Student Day was held in Vilnius in April 2013.
The planned Baltic Student Conference is thus the fourth event which gives students interested in the Baltic countries an opportunity to meet and share their thoughts, ideas and research interests with fellow students.
