Although at present the comparative study of the Baltic languages is enjoying good times (it is enough to open the last issues of the journal Baltistica to find stimulating papers on virtually every aspect of Baltic historical linguistics) the field suffers from the fact that few professional Balticists are sufficiently trained in Indo-European linguistics and, conversely, a profound knowledge of Baltic is also rare among Indo-Europeanists.

The main aim of the workshop is to bridge the gap between both fields and to bring scholars working on the Baltic languages and on Indo-European linguistics into closer contact with each other. In addition to papers dealing with Baltic and Balto-Slavic issues from an Indo-European perspective, papers focusing on other branches of Indo-European with an impact on Baltic will be welcome as well.
