For those who are unfamiliar, the Himalayan Languages Symposium is an annually convening, open scholarly forum for scholars of Himalayan languages. HLS serves as a podium for contributions on any language of the greater
Himalayan region, whether Burushaski, Kusunda, a Tibeto-Burman language, an Indo-Aryan tongue or other language. Linguists as well as specialists from related disciplines like philology, history, anthropology, archaeology and
prehistory are welcome to make their contributions to the study of Himalayan languages and Himalayan language communities.

We invite abstracts for presentations on topics including, but not limited to:

- Descriptions of lesser-known languages
- Language change and variation
- Multilingualism and language contact
- Historical-comparative studies
- Typological studies
- Field reports
- Corpus-based analysis
- Language death and language preservation
- Language policy and language planning
- Ethnology and folklore
- Himalayan languages and new technologies
