abstracts for papers lasting 30 minutes (plus 10 minutes discussion).
Papers may relate to any language or languages spoken in the Caucasus. A
particular emphasis of the conference will be areal linguistic features, so
papers relating to this topic will be particularly welcome, although papers
on all aspects of languages of the Caucasus are sought.

The languages of the conference will be English and Russian, and abstracts
may be submitted in either language. Abstracts should be sent to Bernard
Comrie or Jasmine Dum-Tragut (for addresses, see below), preferably as
e-mail attachments in .pdf format; electronic versions in .doc or .rtf
format must use Unicode for any special symbols; hard copies may also be
sent by regular mail. Abstracts should not exceed two pages (including
references and examples) and should include the title of the presentation,
the name of the presenter(s), and coordinates for one presenter (e-mail,
telephone, fax, postal address) to be used for correspondence with the
conference organizers.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is January 31, 2007. Those submitting
abstracts will be informed of the program committee's decision by March 31,
2007. Some travel funding may be available for scholars from the Caucasus
whose abstracts are accepted.

Questions should be addressed to one of the conference organizers,
preferably by e-mail to cauc2007eva.mpg.de: Bernard Comrie (Bernard
Comrie, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Deutscher Platz
6, D-04103 Leipzig, Germany) or Jasmine Dum-Tragut (Department of
