Meeting Description:

After a brief interruption, the next Nilo-Saharan Linguistics Colloquium is now scheduled for 2013. Since the previously planned Nilo-Saharan Colloquium did not materialize due to organizational problems, and since no host for the next upcoming meeting has been selected so far, we would like to offer to organize the next Nilo-Saharan Linguistics Colloquium at the University of Cologne. The colloquium is intended to take place from May 22-24, 2013. We hope this meets your common interest and also that Cologne will be a congenial venue for the colloquium.

The organizing committee intends to acquire funding for those participants who may not be able to cover their travel costs.

Call for Papers:

The call for papers and/or panels is open from now on until the deadline in January 31, 2013. For submissions, comments and enquiries please contact

We currently plan specific panels, e.g. a panel on Eastern Sudanic classification and reconstructions. We are looking forward to your suggestions for further panels as well as to your individual papers.

Greatly looking forward to welcoming you to Cologne,

Angelika Mietzner, Anne Storch and Gerrit Dimmendaal
