Meeting Description:

The First Conference on the Endangered Languages of East Asia will be held from May 6th to May 7th, 2020 and hosted by the Department of Asian and North African Studies at Ca' Foscari University of Venice, Italy.

The scope of the Conference is on any indigenous, endangered, or minority language that is spoken in the territories of Japan, China, Korea, the Russian Far-East, Mongolia, Taiwan, and the Philippines. Contributions dealing with any aspect of the official or main languages spoken in these territories (e.g. Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc.), as well as of the dialects and varieties of these languages, fall out of the scope of the Conference and will not be considered.

Call for Papers:

Abstracts are invited for 20-minute presentations (plus 10-minute discussion) and for posters on any area of descriptive linguistics including phonetics, phonology, morphosyntax, semantics, and pragmatics. The overall topic for this first meeting of CELEA is language obsolescence - all contributions are expected to comply with this general topic and present some descriptive data on language obsolescence, regardless of the area of linguistics dealt with.

The deadline for abstract submission is January 31, 2020.
Abstracts should be anonymous (no name/surname nor affiliation). Abstracts should be max 500 words (excluding references but including examples, glosses, tables, graphs, or figures).

Please refer to the official Conference page (, where information about CELEA1 will be regularly updated.
