Quite often in conferences we do not have enough time for questions and we have even less time for discussions. Yet dialogue between scholars is basis for innovation and synthesis in any discipline. Tartu Summer School of Semiotics aspires to create academic gathering with a balance between presenting, discussing, teaching and learning inside and outside the seminar rooms.

Summer School is not about presenting papers, but opportunity to meet and converge with other scholars, to share ideas, knowledge, experiences and understanding, to learn and to teach, to have formal and informal discussions, but above anything a possibility to be part of the synthesis of ideas, theories and perspectives on key topics.
