Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The International Conference on Historical Linguistics is held every second
year under the auspices of the International Society of Historical Linguistics.

Dear Colleagues,

The Organizers of the 20th International Conference on Historical
Linguistics (ICHL XX) have been receiving messages showing sympathies
toward those affected by the earthquake that took place in the Northern
Japan on March 11, and would like to thank everyone for their
consideration. We assure prospective participants that the Osaka area is
little affected by the incident (we are more than 1000 km away from the area
where the disaster took place); on this side of Japan, things have remained
normal and airports and other public transportations are functioning as
usual. We understand that the situation in Tokyo is quickly getting back to
normal as well. We do not see any reason why the conference has to be
cancelled or relocated at this point, and if you are wondering about what to
do, please go ahead and make plans to participate in the conference in
Osaka. If you have any specific inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact
us.

We appreciate the fact that so many people's thoughts are with us. The
Conference Organizers would like to also show deepest sympathies toward
those who live in the affected region. We are hoping that the disaster
control and recovery in the Tohoku-Kantoh Area will be smooth and
effective.

Thank you very much and looking forward to welcoming you in Osaka in
July.

Kikusawa Ritsuko
Director, ICHL20 Organizing Committee

Important Notice
Due to the recent earthquake in the Tohoku area on March 11, 2011, the
Tokyo Electric Power Company has announced the possibility of temporary
power outages until full power can be restored to the affected areas. It is
possible, therefore, that the ICHLXX website may be temporarily out of
service during the blackout. If you cannot access the website, please try
again after a few hours.

to check if your company operates such a program.
