6th Workshop on Altaic Formal Linguistics
Short Title: WAFL 6

Date: 04-Sep-2009 - 06-Sep-2009
Location: Nagoya, Japan
Contact: Hiroki Maezawa
Contact Email: wafl6gcoe.lit.nagoya-u.ac.jp
Meeting URL: http://www.gcoe.lit.nagoya-u.ac.jp/~wafl6/

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Language Family(ies): Altaic
Meeting Description:

The Sixth Workshop on Altaic Formal Linguistics (WAFL 6) will be held at Nagoya
University, Japan. Dates: 22 - 24 May, 2009. Along with a General Session,
there will be a Special Session on Acquisition in Altaic and talks by invited
speakers.

WAFL6, planned for May 22-24, 2009, at Nagoya University in Japan has been postponed. This is due to the outbreak of swine flu, and the particularly aggressive stance that the Japanese government has taken in attempting to prevent the influenza from spreading into the country. Holding the meeting at this point would put the participants coming from abroad at risk of being placed in a dire stuation such as quarantine, or even a last-minute cancellation of the meeting should the situation deteriorate further. We have rescheduled the WAFL6 meeting for September 4-6, 2009. Nagoya University has agreed to continue to be the host for the meeting. We understand that this will cause a great deal of inconvenience, and we regret that we were forced to make this decision. Please let us know if you have any questions.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any

your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
