The Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT) and DIALOG, the Research and knowledge network relating to Aboriginal peoples, will host the 17th Inuit Studies Conference which will take place from November 4 to 6, 2010. The event will be held at the UQAT First Peoples Pavilion on the Val-d'Or campus, Québec, Canada, under the theme "The Inuit and the Aboriginal World". Through this theme, our intention is to explore the common concerns of the Inuit and the other Aboriginal peoples throughout the world. We propose the following sub-themes: the environment, the climate change, the economic development, the issues connected to languages and cultures and also the education.

Proposals for papers must be sent to conference coordinators by email or postal mail by Friday, January 22, 2010, at the latest. Proposals can be presented in French or in English. A scientific committee will select the papers to be presented at the conference. The Committee's selections will be made public in March 2010.
