Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce that the 50th Annual International Conference on Salish and Neighbouring Languages (ICSNL) will be held from August 5–7, 2015 at the University of British Columbia, jointly hosted by UBC and the Simon Fraser University First Nations Language Centre. All papers relevant to the documentation, analysis, preservation, and teaching of Salish and neighbouring languages are welcome.

To help us celebrate the 50th anniversary, we have an outstanding line-up of invited speakers who have all made important contributions to the field and to past conferences. We will also be inviting community members and elders; these invitees are to be confirmed.
