persuasion, to participate in the Conference. We also invite specialists in
the languages of other families with long-established contacts with Mande
languages to take part in the Conference in order to discuss external links
of the Mande language family. The panels will be organized according to
'traditional' divisions ('Phonology', 'Morphology', 'Syntax', 'Discourse',
'Lexicology and lexicography', 'Comparative studies', 'Sociolinguistics', etc.).
At the same time, specialized sessions can be scheduled too, if necessary.
Initiatives to organize specialized sessions are welcome. Round tables and
working groups may also be proposed, for topics that merit broad
discussion or tasks that require detailed planning. The final list of panels
and sessions will be defined with respect of the initiatives of the participants.
The working languages of the Conference will be English and French.
