Call for Papers:

To present a paper at the Conference, please send an abstract of no more than 500 words (exclusive of data and references, if any) no later than September 15, 2013 via email to both s.moreylatrobe.edu.au and markwpostgmail.com. Please send both the original abstract (.docx, .doc, .odf, .rtf or .txt format) and a .pdf of the same. Please save the file using the following format: NEILS8_Abstract_INITIAL+SURNAME_BRIEFTITLE.EXT. For example, NEILS8_Abstract_PSingh_ManipuriPronouns.docx.

Important: When preparing your abstract, do not use any special formatting, styles, etc. Just give the paper title, your name and affiliation, and your abstract, in plain text. That’s all!

Notification of acceptance will normally take place in early October, although early submissions/decisions for those needing to make extensive advance travel arrangements can be arranged. As the primary focus of NEILS is description of the rich cultural-linguistic diversity that exists in North East India, papers should have a primary descriptive component, preferably from a functional-typological or anthropological-linguistic perspective. Field reports are acceptable. Papers whose sole or primary focus is formal, theoretical and/or computational in nature, or papers whose focus is on languages not spoken in North East India, are unlikely to be accepted for presentation. However, we will consider papers concerning languages spoken in the areas of Myanmar, China, Bhutan, Bangladesh and West Bengal that border the North East.
