Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Meeting Description: After a brief interruption, the next Nilo-Saharan Linguistics Colloquium is now scheduled for 2013. Since the previously planned Nilo-Saharan Colloquium did not materialize due to organizational problems, and since no host for the next upcoming meeting has been selected so far, we would like to offer to organize the next Nilo-Saharan Linguistics Colloquium at the University of Cologne. The colloquium is intended to take place from May 22-24, 2013. We hope this meets your common interest and also that Cologne will be a congenial venue for the colloquium.

The organizing committee intends to acquire funding for those participants who may not be able to cover their travel costs.
