Meeting Description:

The 5th International Conference on Kurdish Linguistics (ICKL-5) will take place at the University of Graz (Austria) organized by treffpunkt sprachen - Plurilingualism Research Unit.

The ICKL serves as a forum of scientific exchange for linguists working on any aspect of Kurdish, including the interactions with its neighboring languages. ICKL is meant to provide an environment for collaboration, and a space to share ideas big or small. 

The ICKL-5 will take place in Graz but depending on the evolution of the situation with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it might also take the form of a hybrid or complete digital video conference.

Second Call for Papers:

Due to popular demand, the abstract submission deadline for the 5th International Conference on Kurdish Linguistics (ICKL-5) has now been extended to April 20, 2021. The organizing committee hopes that this additional time will provide more opportunities for participation in this exciting conference! 

As detailed in original the Call for Papers, please submit abstracts online via the EasyChair site here:

The dates of the conference remain unchanged (September 24-25, 2021) and the organizers will endeavour to return notifications of acceptance by the end of May.
