The organizing committee of the 5th International conference "Native Language in Polycultural Space: Modern Approaches in Development of Native Languages" announces about postponing of the conference. The decision is caused by necessity to provide as much as possible representativity of the regions of the Russian Federation, as well as to widen the range of qualified experts community’s participation in discussion on topical issues of preservation and development of native languages within Russia’s multi-ethnic society.

Taking into consideration a great interest toward the conference from the representatives of the subjects of the Russian Federation, those dealing with language and ethnolingustical issues, the organizing committee sees appropriate to postpone the conference onto year 2018. That will allow to include the federal executive authorities of culture, education, ethnic policy and mass communiction into the process of preparation and holding of the event.

On the conference’s new dates there will be announced later.
