Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) syntax, phonology, phonetics, sociolinguistics, historical development and speech technology, as well as issues specific to research on endangered and revitalised languages.

Abstracts are to be submitted as a .pdf, .doc or .odt file using EasyAbs here. Abstract format: 2 pages maximum (A4 or letter-sized, 12pt font, 2.5cm/1-inch margins), including examples and references. Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously, so authors are asked to avoid self-references in their abstracts and to ensure that the document properties of the file do not include author details.

The conference will include oral presentations (30 minutes, including discussion) and poster presentations. When submitting the abstract, the author(s) will be asked to indicate their presentation format preference (if any).

The language of the oral and poster presentations will be English.
