Meeting Description:

The Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany,

Call For Papers

Those interested in participating are asked to submit abstracts for papers
lasting 20 minutes (plus 10 minutes discussion). Papers may relate to any
language or languages spoken in the Caucasus. We encourage submitting
papers on phonetics and phonology and on areal linguistics, although 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 Zaira
Khalilova or Diana Forker, 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 and postal address) to be used for
correspondence with the conference organizers.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is October 1, 2010. Those submitting
abstracts will be informed of the program committee's decision by November
2, 2010.

The workshop will have slots only for thirty participants. Since the workshop
has limited slots for participation, the committee will select the best abstracts
for the presentation at the workshop.

Additionally some travel funding may be available for scholars from the
Caucasus and Russia whose abstracts are accepted.
