The Pro-Sign project, funded by the European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML), is a first and highly significant step toward the establishment of European standards for specifying proficiency levels for use in Deaf Studies and Interpreting programmes offered at tertiary level.

Part of this Pro-Sign project is the organisation of a workshop “Signed Languages for Professional Purposes” for invited representatives of ECML member states on 15-17th April 2013, in Graz, Austria.

In order to prepare for this workshop, the Pro-SignExpert Team is organising a conference open to all professionals and researchers interested in developing and establishing common sign language levels.
