Conference documents are available in English and French on the web site of the Conference:European Conference of Presidents of Parliament (coe.int). Simultaneous interpretation will be provided into and from English, French, German, Italian and Russian.

Any delegation requiring interpretation of the speech of their President by their own interpreter will be given access to an interpretation booth. For any request, please contact the Conference Secretariat: ecpp2021@parliament.gr

Additional booths can be allocated, in chronological order of requests made (first come first served), for simultaneous interpretation in other languages. The costs of recruitment of interpreters will be borne by the relevant delegations.

Please note that these requests must comply with the working conditions of interpreters working for the Council of Europe.

 

List of speakers / Speeches

Presidents (or Vice-Presidents) can already register in the list of speakers (for one or more themes) contacting the Secretariat of the Conference: ecpp2021@parliament.gr

The order of the speakers in the speaking list will be determined by the drawing of lots organised during the meeting of Secretaries of national delegations (21 October, from 9 to 10 am). The list thus established will be distributed as soon as possible to allow speakers to know when they will be called to address the Conference.

Speakers registering after the drawing of lots will be added to the list in the order in which they have registered.

In order to facilitate the work of the interpreters, speakers are invited to provide in advance a copy of any written speeches to the Secretariat of the Conference: ecpp2021@parliament.gr

Speeches will be delivered from the rostrum.
