Meeting Description:

The 24th Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference will be held on October 14–16, 2016, at the National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics (NINJAL) in Tachikawa, Tokyo, Japan. The conference provides a forum for researchers in any subfield of linguistics to present their work on Korean and/or Japanese.

Call for Abstracts:

We welcome abstract submissions for 20-minute presentations followed by 10 minutes for discussion. The deadline for abstract submission is May 15, 2016. Authors will be notified in early July.

- Authors may be the first or sole author of at most one abstract, and may be a non-first co-author of any number of abstracts.
- The research presented in the abstract must be new. Please do not present research that has already been published/presented or is scheduled to be published/presented. Please also make your abstract anonymous, to the extent possible.
- The maximum length for an abstract is 2 pages (A4 or US letter size), including tables, figures, and references. Abstract text must be in English, in a 12-point or larger font. Please embed your examples in the main text, rather than putting all of them together on the second page.
