The University of California Santa Barbara will host an interdisciplinary
conference ''Languages and Genes'' on 2006 September 8-10, which will bring
together leading international specialists in the areas of linguistics,
genetics, anthropology, and archeology. The aim is to ascertain the state of the
art with regard to cooperative research among these disciplines relating to
human prehistory, in particular the major population movements that led to the
demographic distribution of population groups, and especially to identify the
most promising developments for future research on this problem from a
multi-disciplinary perspective.

The conference will incorporate a poster session and we invite abstracts for
consideration in this session. Abstracts should be a maximum of one page and
should be sent no later than 2006 March 10 to Bernard Comrie at the e-mail
address eva.mpg.de>. Those submitting abstracts will be informed of the
