The 18th International Conference on Minority Languages ICML 2021 extends the deadline for submitting proposals until 23 August 2020. Given the situation created by the COVID-19, the organisation decided to extend the deadline for the presentation of individual proposals (in oral or poster communication format) and panels. The evaluation of all proposals and the notification of acceptance to abstract submitters by October 30, 2020.

Due to the uncertainty both about the health situation in the spring of 2021 and about the changes that the pandemic might cause, the ICML XVIII conference will be of a mixed nature, in which in-person activities will be combined with virtual activities. The weight of each of the modalities will be defined as the situation becomes clearer.

ICML XVIII will be held in Bilbao (ES) from 24 - 26 March 2021, organised by the NOR Research Group at the UPV/EHU (University of the Basque Country).
