We are now calling for papers to be presented at this years's Aboriginal Languages Workshop (ALW) at Kioloa, from 7-9 March 2014.

Three workshops will be held in association with ALW:

Organiser: Cathy Bow

Please state if you would like the paper to be considered for the McConvell, et al. workshop, or the Meakins/O'Shannessy workshop as well.

Please also email some preregistration information so we can plan accommodation / catering bookings. We need to know:

(a) Who's coming (you, partner etc.)
(b) If you are OK with shared rooming arrangements (some rooms are bunk-rooms)
(c) Which nights you will need accommodation for (Friday and Saturday is the default if staying for whole of ALW)
(d) If you need to book bedding (sheets, blankets etc.) at a small extra charge (otherwise bring your own)

These numbers are to help us work out costs; once we have done this we will get out a more formal call for registration.

Deadline: January 18, 2014

ANU Conveners:
