The Visual Management of Mobility - International scientific conference
The ways in which people engage with their environment and with each other have changed as a result of transformations in communication, mobility and ways to access information.
Our mobility, whether by foot, car or public transport, is guided visually through signage, GPS, Google maps, route planning, applications for public transport and so on. Technology, including smart-phones, tablets and laptops, allows us to navigate to and within unfamiliar places. At the same time, these devices may discourage verbal communication with other people as the required information can be easily accessed without human interaction.
We encourage scholars from the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Visual Communication and Media to contribute to the conference. The conference will provide a platform for the exchange of ideas on visual communication and urban public space, and aims to promote theoretical and social innovation.
THE 1ST BIAŁYSTOK CONFERENCE ON THEORETICAL AND APPLIED LINGUISTICS
In recent years linguistic conferences organized by the Białystok circle of neophilologists have established a strong tradition in terms of providing a forum for the exchange of views on the nature of language. It all started almost fifteen years ago, in 2002. The main aim of the conferences was to provide a meeting ground for a wide range of scholars: linguists, literary scholars, foreign language teaching methodologists, to mention but a few groups of researchers participating in the events. The conferences explored the relationship between language, culture, and social interaction. They were often organized in co-operation with French language scholars.

Comics in Culture/Culture in Comics
The aim of the conference is to present a wide array of perspectives of different forms of comics and their role in culture. Comics, as a unique combination of literature and visual arts, spanning from child entertainment, through popculture, to independent artistic expression, are a great source of interdisciplinary research. This is why we welcome entries on variety of topics exploring the relations between them and culture.
