Meeting Description:

The North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics (NACCL) is a premier international conference series dedicated to scientific research of the Chinese language. It serves as a leading platform for researchers worldwide to share and exchange scholarly explorations and fresh knowledge in all subfields of Chinese linguistics.

The 24th North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics (NACCL-24), co-organized by the University of California at Davis and the University of San Francisco, will be held from June 8-10, 2012 on the campus of the University of San Francisco in San Francisco, California.

2012 is the year to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the birth of Yuen Ren Chao (1892-1982). 'More than anyone else, Chao laid the foundation of linguistics in China.' (William S-Y. Wang, 1983). Of his long and splendid academic career of more than six decades, about half (1947-1981) was spent in California. The NACCL-24 conference is proudly dedicated to the memory of Yuen Ren Chao and to the celebration of the development of the Chinese linguistics enterprise that Chao pioneered.
