Meeting Description:

The Athabascan/Dene Languages Conference brings together linguists, speakers,
educators and policy makers from across the Athabascan region. Over the past two
decades this conference has become the principal forum in which members of
geographically distant, but culturally and intellectually related, Athabascan
communities can compare notes and learn from each other.

Call for Papers

Abstracts are invited for 30-minute presentations in all areas of
Athabascan/Dene linguistics, language documentation, language teaching, language
policy, and language revitalization. Presentations addressing the themes/special
sessions of the conference are particularly welcome. URL:

Special Session 1 "What stories and conversations can teach us"

The collection of narratives has always been an integral part of both linguistic
and anthropological work, and it is one of the important issues worked on by
many communities. The first special session has the goal of investigating
narrative data from all perspectives in order to stimulate new research and
discussion. The genre of conversation on the other hand has long been neglected,
partially because of the difficulties associated with recording 'natural'
conversation. However, the study of this linguistically rich genre will not only
benefit linguistic inquiry, but is also highly relevant for language
revitalization efforts, since language learners need to be able to listen to
natural conversation in addition to other forms of language teaching. We thus
invite all presentations on linguistic, anthropological, or pedagogical research
related to narratives and conversation.

Special Session 2 "Language Technology in Revitalization"

For the second special session, we invite presentations of media used in
community efforts in language revitalization, such as e.g. websites, books,
DVD's or larger projects. The presentations can be full-length talks, but we
also strongly encourage poster-style presentations, laptop-demonstrations,
tutorials for technical workflows or simply bringing along books, posters and
other materials to be displayed during a poster-style session.

Submission Guidelines:
For oral presentations, please email your anonymous abstracts as .doc or .pdf to
olgalithophile.com AND gabrielemuellergmail.com. The body of the accompanying
email should include the title of the paper and the names and contact
information for all authors of the presentation. Abstracts must fit on one page
in 12-point font with 1" margins. References and longer text examples may be
included on a separate page if necessary. For contributions to the second
special session in other formats, please send us a short description of what you
would like to present and indicate the format of your contribution.

Presentation & Publication:
Presentations are allotted 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion.
Presentations in the second special session may have other formats (shorter
presentations, tutorials, posters, demo's,...).
Presented papers will be published as a volume of the Alaska Native Language
Center Working Papers.
