Dear colleagues,

the International Congress for Finno-Ugric Studies (Congressus Internationalis Fenno-Ugristarum, CIFU) is the most important international event in the world of Finno-Ugric (Uralic) studies. At the 12th CIFU in Oulu, 2015, it was decided that for the first time in its history, the CIFU of 2020 would take place outside the traditional host countries, in Vienna. We at the Finno-Ugric Department of the University of Vienna are honoured by this important task and the confidence placed in us. We also see it as an important reminder about the international character of Finno-Ugric studies, transcending the borders of states, regions, national research traditions and schools.

We invite all interested colleagues to the XIII International Congress for Finno-Ugric Studies, which will take place in Vienna on August 16–21, 2020. The programme will consist of plenary papers, symposia, and general session papers. Contributions from any area within Finno-Ugric/Uralic studies in the wide sense are welcome. This applies to Hungarian, Finnish, or Estonian studies as well. However, we would like to point out that these areas have their own well-established scholarly fora, and papers on Hungarian, Finnish, or Estonian topics which do not include or invite more general, contrastive or comparative approaches would probably be better placed at a conference with a more specific theme. The schedule of the congress will be based on 30-minute programme slots; to allow time for discussion and for moving between lecture halls, we recommend the duration of ca. 20 minutes for each talk.
